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 an extended 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 hyperpigmentation 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.
You’ll Need :
- 1 tbsp rice powder
- 1/2 sliced tomato
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1 tbsp lemon juice (this is optional but I like adding this ingredient for an extra whitening result )
① Put the rice powder in a container and press the tomato to squeeze off the juice.
② Add the honey in the mixture and mix them all together until you’ll get a thick paste-like consistency.
③ Apply the mixture into your skin and leave it on until it dries up.
④ Use the remaining squeezed tomato and gently rub it all over your face. Let it sit for another 2-3 minutes before rinsing off. Apply your favorite moisturizer.
⑤ Do this routine 3x a week for better results.
