Apart from the fact that their ingredients are very easy to find, these natural fade cream recipes can be produced within minutes, and they work as effectively as the commercial lightening creams do.
Here are a few tips that’ll help you
Firstly, before you start making your homemade skin whitening remedy, you have to first bear it at the back of your mind, that the formula you’re about to prepare is not like the conventional fade creams you find in the market, which you can rub on your body, dress up and get going for the day. No; it’s not like that. Your natural recipe is made from natural ingredients which are mixed together in their raw form; so you can’t just rub them on your body and hit the road, expecting your skin to absorb them. Instead, all you need to do is to apply it on the affected areas of the body or face, leave it to stay for a period of 15 to 20 minutes, after which you have to wash it away with clean water.
Natural Skin Whitening Recipe
Natural skin whitening creams can be made using different vegetables, fruits, oils and other natural ingredients which have the properties of reducing skin pigmentation, moisturizing the skin and reducing the signs of aging. In this article, we talk about lemon-based natural skin whitening creams.
Lemon-based skin whiteners are natural skin whitening creams produced with lemon juice serving as its main ingredient. Lemon juice has the properties of reducing production of skin pigments. However, any recipe based on lemon juice, has to be handled with care because it is acidic, and can cause dryness of the skin. Because of this, it is very important to stay moisturized at all times, and also to limit the application of the recipe to a maximum of three times per week. Also, it is important to wear protective clothing; to shield you from the harmful effect of the sun, when you are using this kind of recipe. This is because the acidic content of lemon juice can make you more susceptible to sunburn.
The necessary Ingredients for lemon based natural skin whiteners
Here are some of the important ingredients you need to combine with lemon juice when you want to make lemon-based skin lightening recipe.
Lemon and Honey Skin Lightening Recipe
As the term “natural” implies, everything you use for this product has to be 100% natural. For this recipe, you need honey and lemon. You must make sure that the honey you use for this recipe is raw and not processed honey. This is because industrial processing causes honey to lose some of its benefits. In addition, instead of buying bottled honey juice, buy a honeycomb and squeeze out the honey yourself. This is because some of the bottled honey juice in the market has been diluted with water. This piece of instruction should serve as a precaution because the more natural you keep your ingredients, the better the result you’ll get at the end of the day.
Add three table spoons of raw honey into your lemon juice, and mix them together. After mixing together, rub the mixture on the targeted areas, and leave it for 20 minutes, after which you wash it off with warm water.
If your face or body dries up after you have washed off the recipe, apply a good moisturize to moisturize your face or the affected parts of the skin. You can also mask your face with a moisturizing recipe.
Cucumber and Honey paste Moisturizer
This moisturizer is made using two table spoons of thinly sliced cucumber and three teaspoons of honey. To stop the skin dryness after you have washed off the lemon-honey recipe, mask your face with this moisturizer for a period of fifteen minutes, after which you have to clean your face with a wet and warm towel. If you have a naturally dry skin, you can apply a moisturizing lotion thereafter.
Lemon and Oatmeal Natural Skin Whitening Recipe
This recipe is mostly recommended for people who have dry skin. Oatmeal makes the skin softer, so it is less harsh on dry skin as compared to the former. To get the best result, use steel cut oats instead of pre-packed ones.
Firstly, cook your oat for two minutes of thereabout; after which you have to mash it to a finer paste. Then add half teaspoon of warm water and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Then you stir the mixture to mix properly. Rub the mixture to the affected areas of the body, and leave it for thirty minutes, after which you can wash it off with warm water.
After washing off, you can apply a moisturizing lotion if you want to.
When should I expect to see results?
The human skin undergoes natural regeneration every thirty days. During this period, old skin cells die off, and they are been replaced by new ones. If you are using these natural recipes or any other recipe or commercial skin whitening product, it will take a period of 30 days before you start seeing the effect. This is because during the regeneration of the skin, the old and darkened skin will die off, and become replaced by the new and whitened skin.
This result also applies to commercial skin fade creams. However, the advantage natural remedies have over their commercial counterparts is that natural remedies do not come with any adverse side effects, unlike commercial skin whiteners that are filled with chemicals that will damage your skin, and put your health at risk sometime in the future.
