If you have heavy pigmentation on your skin, you probably use products from your favorite store to help lighten your skin. Have you ever read the labels of those products? They often contain words you may not be able to pronounce. These are chemicals that can cause damage to your skin when used over a long period. One of these ingredients is hydroquinone, that scientists found may cause cancer. That’s a high price to pay for beauty that you don’t have to pay if you use natural methods to whiten skin.
Skin discoloration or hyper-pigmentation often comes from damage caused by the sun. While age plays a role, aging just accentuates the accumulation of damage through the years. Your genetic makeup can create the problem, too. You can’t choose your genetics or opt to stay younger, but you can avoid overexposure to the sun by always wearing a sunscreen. You can also keep your skin healthier to prevent damage by moisturizing regularly.
What you need:
- 1 tbsp raw Honey
- 1/2 tbsp Baking Soda
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
You’ll use 1 tbsp of raw honey to 1/2 tbsp of baking soda and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Simple, right? Just mix it together and gently scrub your freshly-cleanse skin in a circular motion with the mixture for 2 minutes then rinse it off with warm water and moisturize. Repeat 2-3 times a week and not more.
Create Your Scrub with Natural Ingredients
Finding a good scrub that doesn’t cost a fortune can be difficult, particularly for those with oily skin. This one works and is very inexpensive. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and use, but will give you brighter, lighter, more even skin tone in a very short time. Consistency is important, but you’ll see some of the benefits even after the first use. It also softens the skin without irritating it.
The Benefits of the Ingredients
Lemon juice lighten the skin, but does it gently. It also has antibacterial properties to help reduce the potential of acne breakouts. Lemon juice and baking soda act as a natural peel, exfoliating the top layer of skin and sloughing off the dead skin cells. That leaves your complexion smooth and also a bit lighter in the process. The honey is the carrier that also soothes the skin and softens it while the other ingredients do their jobs.
