Skin whitening products reduce the dark pigmentation of your skin which protects you from the UV rays of the sun. These Skin-whitening products go by other names, such as fade creams, bleaching creams or skin lighteners. But they all perform essentially the same function. The main difference is the ingredients. Some are natural and others are manufactured chemicals. The safest and least expensive products are made from natural ingredients. Some of these natural skin whitening treatments and remedies include the following:-

Application of Lemon Juice
# Lemon as we all know is found in many detergents and soaps promising brighter clothes and utensils yes they can be used on your skin as well yes I know its a bad comparison still, lemon is full of vitamin C which brightens your skin and reduces dark spots. This homemade skin whitener is completely safe and natural. The citric acid in lemons act as a mild acid that exfoliates or removes the epidermis or top skin layer.
The application of lemon juice on the dark areas of your skin will help reduce the pigmentation and remove the dead skin from the top, which allow the new skin to reach the surface which is less coloured and fresh.

Collect fresh juice in a bottle or you can buy it from the market, remember to see the acidity of the juice sold in market, they can be concentrated which might turn your skin red. So test on your hands before applying on face. Apply the lemon juice to the hyper-pigmented areas with a cotton ball. You can apply lemon juice a few times a day. Results will be seen within a few weeks.

Application of Hydrogen Peroxide
# Hydrogen peroxide is a popular name among bleaching products. Essentially seen in many hair coloring kits and teeth-whitening products. Hydrogen peroxide is mostly used in homes as a disinfectant. The hydrogen peroxide sold in drug stores is in a dark-colored bottle because sunlight and artificial light lessens its potency. Use a cotton ball to apply a small amount of the peroxide to the areas you want to lighten in color. As with lemon juice, you can apply hydrogen peroxide a few times a day.

Application of Buttermilk for fairness
# Buttermilk is another natural product which can be used to fade discolored areas and lighten skin. The lactic acid in buttermilk works in a way similar to citric acid. The lactic acid exfoliates the epidermis and helps to fade the age spots or scars. Buttermilk can be applied to the skin and used as a facial. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm mater. You can have a buttermilk facial a few times a week.

Application of Milk Powder and honey

Application of Oatmeal and Yogurt
# Yogurt is another natural product which helps in curing various problems related to human body. Mix Oatmeal with yoghurt, tomato juice and apply it on the skin for 20 minutes, wash with cold water, this helps in lighten the skin by getting rid of the tan. Hence works as a good skin whitening mixture.

Application of Dry oranges for skin whitening
# A paste made of crushed, dried orange peels and yoghurt washed off  with cold water after 15-minutes, reduces skin blemishes and scars, thereby making the skin look fairer and lovelier.

Applying milk with gram flour
# Milk and gram flour is another good mixture which can help in getting you a fairer and young looking skin, one tablespoon gram flour mixed with two teaspoons raw milk and  2-3 drops of lime juice should be applied on the face for 15-minutes clean with water and wipe off this works in fairness and reduction of marks.
