Yogurt is a by product of milk and it has many nutrients that are good for skin. The lactic acid in it has many bleaching properties. Apply yogurt on your face and leave it on your face for a few minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. This also helps get rid of freckles.
Gram flour is one of the best ingredients for people who wish to lighten their skin complexion. It contains various nutrients that help keep your skin very healthy. Mix some gram flour with a small amount of water or rose water to make a thick paste. Apply it on your face, hands, and legs. Leave it on until the paste dries. Then wash it off with water.
Honey acts as bleaching agent. Dry skin is a common factor that contributes to an uneven skin tone. Honey also has antibacterial properties that can help fade age spots and acne scars. To make a skin-lightening mask, combine one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice, one tablespoon of powdered milk, and one-half teaspoon of almond oil. Mix them well and apply it gently on the skin. Leave it on for 10 to15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
