My homemade Skin Lightening remedy
I am firm believer that Nature has all the answers to our problems. We just have to search for them. But we tend to find them in expensive and attractive packaging loaded with chemicals, creating more problems in the long run.
One of my favourite natural beauty products is Aloe Vera. It comes in various forms, as gel, as a drink, as cream and lots more. Aloe Vera is a succulent thorny plant and has many healing properties. Among some of these healing benefits are, it helps to heal scars, stretch marks, insect bites, fights wrinkles, sunburn and more when applied on the skin. When taken orally it can help heartburn, detox the body from toxins and aid in weight loss, just to name a few.
I used to apply it on my scars and I must say they did improve a little. I used the gel formula by Herbalife.
Another beauty product I find to work 100% all the time is home-made skin lightening cream. It is so cheap and easy to do. The ingredients and method follow here, it takes less than 5n minutes to prepare.
All you need is three ingredients: Almond, Honey and Lemon.
Mix together half tablespoon of ground almond with 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and stir to combine well. When ready you can apply on dark spots, areas and leave for 15 minutes, after that rinse off with warm water and towel dry. The skin will look brighter and lighter. I use this once when I had a bad chemical burn under my arm and it worked wonders. I had to use the mixture daily for about a week though as the area was big.
Almonds and lemons are skin whitening agents in themselves while honey is a skin softener which is both soothing and retains moisture in the skin.
