Skin Lightening Tips for Dark Skin:

One of the ideal ways to lighten your skin tone is by regularly applying sunscreen lotions. Sunburns are caused when the sun’s rays become too strong for the skin to handle and it starts burning. What is surprising to know is that our skin gets affected by UV rays even when we are indoors. Our skin tone starts becoming uneven and darker when the melanin rate begins to increase. Melanin is the substance present in the body that is known to darken the skin. Sunscreen creams and lotions protect the skin by helping to lessen the effects of the sun’s rays on the skin. This in turn inhibits the ever increasing melanin rate.

Another method to help whiten the skin is moisturizing. Dry skin almost always causes the skin to darken. You must also be aware that if your skin is dry, there are chances that it will tan faster. Skin starts looking fairer when moisturized regularly. You must be absolutely certain that particularly those areas of your body moisturized, that are constantly exposed to harmful UV rays. Your skin will not only glow and look more radiant, but with regular moisturizing your skin will also stay smooth, supple and soft.

Tomato has a bleaching effect on the skin. It serves as a natural skin lightening agent. Without using any harmful chemicals on the skin, gently rubbing a cut tomato onto your face is an ideal method to bleach your skin. Tomato has a better effect on the skin when chilled. Take half a fresh tomato and rub it onto your face for approximately 10 minutes. You must then let the juice of the tomato stay on for about 20 – 25 minutes. Wash your face with normal tap water. Initially, you might find that your skin feels a bit dry. But, all you need to do is apply some moisturizing lotion to your face.

Wheat flour is yet another natural ingredient that helps to keep your skin fair as well as soft. Mix water and wheat flour to form a paste. Do not make this paste very thick. You must now evenly apply this mixture onto your skin. Allow this to remain on your face for approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Wash it off with plain water. Watch how your skin gradually becomes smooth and soft.

Extract of papaya is very beneficial for the skin. Applying a face pack made from papaya helps the skin to glow and even become lighter. Take some mashed papaya and apply it your skin. Let this remain on your face for about 20 minutes. Wash your face with plain water after the required amount of time. Lightly pat your face dry. You will notice a very visible difference in your skin tone.

Vitamin C and Kojic Acid really helps to lighten one’s skin tone. It is not only a safe medication, but very effective too. It is necessary to remember that pregnant women must not apply this medication without first consulting their healthcare professional.
