Fairer skin is something most of us strive towards. Instead of using creams with chemicals in them, you can go the natural way. There are ways to naturally enhance your complexion.

Following are a few natural ways to get a fairer skin, naturally.

Protect yourself from Sun

Sun is your complexion’s worst enemy and you need to protect yourself from it. Sun can cause the skin’s natural complexion to turn dark. Staying indoors and avoiding the sun will help you keep a fairer complexion and if you do have to go out, use a sunblock or sun screen to stop the UV rays from causing a lot of damage to your complexion.

You can also use a hat to cover your face.

Exfoliate

It is important to exfoliate a few times a week to get rid of the dead cells that stick to your skin. You can use a scrub or a dry brush to exfoliate. You can also make your own scrubs and use them to exfoliate.

Lemon Juice Rinse

The juice of a lemon is a natural bleaching agent. Just take 1 part lemon juice and 1 part water and apply the resulting liquid to your skin with a cotton bud. Let it stay on for 20 minutes and rinse with water. Afterwards, apply a good moisturiser to your skin to avoid getting dry skin. You can do this around 3 times a week but doing this too often can cause your skin to irritate so be careful.

Potatoes

Like lemons, potatoes also have bleaching properties. Just cut a slice of potato and gently rub it all over your face, neck, hands, arms and feet. You can also use cucumbers or tomatoes. Once the moisture completely dries, wash the applied area with water and use a good moisturiser to moisturize your skin.
