Natural Lightening Treatment to Get Fair Skin
Make a lemon juice rinse
Lemon juice is a powerful lightener because it contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) that act as a natural exfoliant, taking off the surface layer of the skin to expose the lighter skin underneath. The citric acid in lemon juice also creates a light bleaching effect (just like it does when you put it in your hair). By bathing your skin in a lemon juice rinse, you can lighten your skin a little for a fairer complexion.
Squeeze the juice from half a lemon and add the same amount of water. You want to dilute it to half strength so it won’t irritate your skin or get too sticky.
Dip a cotton ball in the mixture and apply it to your face, neck, chest, arms, and anywhere else you want your skin to be lighter.
Let the rinse sit on your skin for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water. Don’t go outside, since the lemon juice will cause your skin to be sensitive to sunlight.
Apply a moisturizer after the treatment, since lemon juice can dry out your skin.
Repeat three times a week for best results. Don’t do it too often or your skin will become irritated.
