Homemade Skin Bleaching – Recipes and Information

How to make skin bleach from homemade receipe?

Numerous products on the market claim to lighten skin. However, with a little time and patience, you can mix up your own homemade skin bleaching recipe and save considerable cost. Homemade skin bleaching recipes may take a little longer than commercially available products. In fact, some homemade skin bleaching recipes may not work at all for your particular skin type and body chemistry. However, the same is true for commercial skin bleaching and lightening products. The difference is that with homemade skin bleaching mixtures, you don’t spend as much money. The following homemade skin bleaching recipes may need tweaking, adjustments, or several combinations before you find the right recipe for your skin.

Homemade skin bleaching right from your refrigerator :

  • One part lemon juice, two parts cucumber, mixed with a dash of turmeric. You can also add ¼ part glycerin[1] and ¼ part rose water to the mix.
  • Orange peels, dried and ground to powder, mixed with enough milk to make a thick paste.
  • One part lemon juice, one part cucumber juice, one part tomato juice, mixed with one part sandalwood powder.

Homemade skin bleaching from your spice cabinet :

  • One part honey, one part almond paste (made from fresh almonds soaked in water.)
  • One part flour, ¼ part lemon juice, ¼ part milk cream, mixed with a dash of turmeric.

Homemade skin bleaching from your cleaning cabinet :

  • One cup bleach powder, half cup hydrogen peroxide[2], mixed with a teaspoon of ammonia[3]. (Be sure to use bleach powder rather than liquid bleach due to the toxicity of mixing liquid bleach and ammonia.)

Homemade skin bleaching is nothing new. In fact, before commercial applications were available, most skin lightening techniques involved using these common household ingredients. However, before using your homemade skin bleaching mixture, test an area of skin for irritation. You may find yourself allergic to one or more recipes, or that certain ingredients irritate your skin more than others do. Naturally, if homemade skin bleaching irritates your skin extensively or causes an allergic reaction, you should stop using it and try a different recipe.

All of the above homemade skin bleaching recipes can be applied once or twice a day to the area you wish to lighten. As with any skin bleaching technique, you should avoid the eye area. Leave topical remedies on the skin for approximately 15 minutes each time you apply it, or less if your skin is sensitive and cannot tolerate it without irritation.
