There is somehow a great liking in Indians to have fairer skin tones. Fair skinned people are always considered as beautiful, irrespective of their features. For this very reason, every women wants to look fair and in short beautiful.
Realising this fact, most fairness cream brands are introducing new lines of fairness products for instance, Fair & Lovely. My mom is using this brand’s cream since I was a kid and she still uses it. Now, none of their claims are true because my mom is wheatish skinned and she still looks so.
It’s just desire and people’s mindset that has helped the brand create a huge market for them. Some women go to the extent of getting Skin Lightening treatments carried out to get fairer skin.
Well, I must say you need not do all this to look beautiful. True beauty comes from within. If you feel and think good, you will look good. I know so many dark skinned ladies with so brilliant features that no fair skinned girl will have. Skin color is all about genes that you get from your family and it doesn’t defines your beauty. One must love themselves as they are. That is the best thing one could do.
Here is a homemade tip for skin lightening. You can very well try this to get notable difference. Moreover, this tip will have no harmful side effects on your skin and body unlike fairness treatments.
- Sandalwood powder or Multani
Mitti (fuller’s earth):
Sandalwood is considered as an auspicious wood and hence is used in various religious ceremonies. Besides, this wood has numerous beauty benefits. It is said that regular application of sandalwood paste to your face and body will give you flawless and glowing skin. However, I am allergic to it so I prefer Multani mitti over it. But I am just in love with the fragrance of Sandalwood powder.
No food cooked in our country is ever complete without the use of turmeric. Turmeric powder has a number of uses. In addition to its curative powers, turmeric powder has a host of beauty benefits also. Turmeric not only reduces skin pigmentation but also evens out your skin tone. It also effectively condenses the appearance of acne and other ageing marks. It is ideal to be used as body scrub to reduce stretch marks.
- Rose water:
Rose water is one of the best natural treatments for skin. Regularly using rose water to clean your face will get rid of numerous skin problems.
How to make:
Make a thick paste adding one teaspoon full Sandalwood powder or Multani Mitti, a pinch of turmeric and few drops of rose water. Apply this paste to your face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Once your skin feels dry and tight wash off the pack using luke warm water. Regularly applying this pack for at least once in a week will give you glowing and flawless skin.
One must also take healthy and balanced diet to regulate your body’s natural process of skin care. No chemical and homemade treatment can show results unless you are taking care of your body’s inner health.
