Skin Whitening Treatment Recipes

Whitening Treatments can be as easy as 1-2-3! Here are some do-it-yourself, home-prepared whitening treatments.

  • Nourishing and Bleaching Mask- Soak 1 tablespoon urad dal (black mung beans, black mongo beans) and 4 almonds in water overnight and then grind them into a paste. Apply this protein mask to your face, let it dry and wash it off after half an hour. You can do this twice a week.

  • Exfoliating Scrub- Nothing prepares the skin for a whitening treatment better than a great scrub. I use a teaspoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of olive oil. Combine it to form a paste and use it as a face scrub. Rinse thoroughly. You can use used ground coffee as your body scrub. Just wet your body and gently rub in the coffee. You will instantly feel a smoother skin afterwards. Just don't forget to moisture after the bath.

  • For Elbow and Knees-Cut a lemon in half and rub on elbows and knees for approximately ten minutes. Lemon’s acids will gently break down the dark patches of skin so they may be washed away.
  • Face Whitening Treatment- Combine equal amounts of thick coconut milk (cream) and fresh pineapple juice. Make sure to wash your face before applying it. Apply it on your face with a cotton ball, leave it there for about 10 minutes, or until it dries up. Rinse.
  • Underarms and Neck Whitening Treatment- Using a juicer, extract juice from 1 lemon and 1 cucumber. Add a pinch of turmeric powder (you can buy it at grocery stores under the brands mcCormick or Fat and Slim). Apply on clean underarms and neck and let it dry about 10 minutes. Rinse it well with lukewarm water for turmeric is not very pleasant-smelling. Do this everyday until your skin lightened.
  • Homemade Skin Bleach/Bleaching Cream- I wouldn't advice this for those with sensitive skin. Some burning feeling can be experienced when using this concoction, and in some cases, minor skin burns are experienced. You can buy ingredients in Mercury drug stores or Hortaleza or HBC. You will need 2 teaspoons of anhydrous lanolin, 2 teaspoons of spermaceti, about 3 ounces of petroleum jelly, 1 tablespoon of 10volume hydrogen peroxide. Melt the first 3 ingredients over low heat. Let it cool. Mix peroxide well into the mixture. Apply to skin, but not on face. Leaving it there for at least 20 minutes. Rinse well. Apply it thrice a week.
Note: I've read that adding a little powdered milk can prevent skin from burning.
