Natural Skin Whitening Tips – Who Knew it Was So Easy?

Want to learn how to lighten the skin naturally?

While many people in America still prefer the golden tanned look for skin, others are now going full circle to the milky white skin so prized in Victorian times. Fortunately, we are no longer reliant upon mercury laden products to give us the beautiful skin we crave – not only is there an entire beauty market geared towards the production of lighter skin, you can use tried and true natural skin whitening[1] tips from the comfort of your own home. The first rule of beautiful light skin is to stay out of the sun at all times. Be vigilant and consistent.

The sun is necessary to our health in that it helps our bodies produce Vitamin D, a needed nutrient. However, it can also cause minor and major issues with our health. Skin cancer has been definitively linked to excess sun exposure, and even minimal sunlight can leave you with sun spots and uneven skin tone. If you are looking for natural skin whitening tips, start with a good sun-block first. This will prevent you from getting darkened pigmentation spots, and can allow those areas to fade. Wear a hat to protect your face, avoid exposure to the sun’s rays[2], and stay indoors.

Lighten The Skin Naturally

Tomatoes are a surprisingly good way to lighten the skin. Those who rely upon natural skin whitening tips may not realize that an ingredient in their salad could also help their complexion. The acidic tomato is packed with Vitamin C, which works to remove irregular pigmentation, and can also remove blackheads and tighten pores. The papaya works in the same way, and has often been used as a very effective treatment for types of skin cancers as well. Papaya and tomato can be applied as a paste on the skin, or the fruit rubbed on for a light topical treatment.

Milk is probably the absolutely best natural skin bleaching agent there is. This should be at the top of any list for natural skin whitening tips. While buttermilk is the preferred milk to use, due to its acidic components and the milk fat, you can use evaporated or whole milk if you have to. Buttermilk can be applied daily, and will remove freckles and will even out the skin tone to an amazing degree. It is also a very useful application on sunburn, as the lactin in the milk will soothe irritation and swelling while helping the skin to heal.
