There are many factors that contribute to dark and dull skin. The most common include excessive sun exposure, a medical condition, dry skin, stress, poor lifestyle choices, environmental pollutants and last, but not least, regular use of chemical-laden skin care products.
One thing is for sure – having even-toned and flawless skin requires a lot of time and money. On the other hand, the commercial skin-lightening creams and lotions the market is loaded with are not just expensive, but they are often laden with harsh chemicals that can seriously affect your skin health in the long run.
If you won’t to preserve your budget, and at the same time protect your skin from questionable substances found in commercial skin care products, opt for natural alternatives to improve your skin complexion.
The recipe we recommend here is extremely beneficial for lightening dark skin completely naturally.
- coconut oil
- a pinch of turmeric powder
- cucumber juice
- lemon juice
- baking soda
The preparation is quite simple – mix all the ingredients until well-blended. You should aim for a nice creamy paste.
Apply the paste on your face massaging in a circular motion. Leave it on for about half an hour. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. For optimal results do the treatment on a regular daily basis.
- Never get sun-exposed for a couple of hours after the treatment because lemon juice makes your skin more
- Don’t use the treatment on open wounds.
