1 (2). Tips for skin and face glow before wedding night:
1. Lemon juice rinse:
Lemon juice is a powerful lightener because it contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) that act as a natural exfoliant, taking off the surface layer of the skin to expose the lighter skin underneath. The citric acid in lemon juice also creates a light bleaching effect (just like it does when you put it in your hair). By bathing your skin in a lemon juice rinse, you can lighten your skin a little for a fairer complexion.
2. Potato rub:
Rub your skin with raw potato. It’s believed to have mild lightening properties because it contains a high amount of vitamin C. Other vegetables high in vitamin C, such as tomatoes and cucumbers, may also work if you don’t have a potato handy. Vitamin C is often used in over-the-counter skin lightening creams, but you can get better results by just applying the potato directly to your skin. Several times a week, do the following:
3. Turmeric (Haldi) paste:
Turmeric is an Indian spice that has been used to lighten skin for many centuries. It is believed to inhibit the production of melanin, which gives skin its darker color.
4. Aloe vera slather:
Use pure aloe vera. This soothing substance is known for helping your skin heal after getting burned, but it also has a compound called anthraquinone that gently lightens the skin by removing the top layer of skin cells. You’ll see aloe as an ingredient in a number of different creams and lotions, but for best results, use an aloe vera plant or get a bottle of pure aloe vera.
5. Green Coconut Water:
Rinse your skin with green coconut water. As with many natural remedies, no studies have been conducted to prove that coconut water can lighten the skin. However, individual users have found that using it as a rinse can lighten the skin in addition to making it soft and smooth.
6. Lemon honey mask:
Make a lemon honey mask. When you mix natural skin lighteners with exfoliants, you can create a mask that lightens the skin by both taking off the dark top layer of cells and lightly bleaching the fresh skin underneath. Try a mask made with lemon juice, honey (a natural moisturizer that offsets lemon’s drying effects), and a teaspoon of ground oatmeal. Apply it to your face and anywhere else you want, leave it for 20 minutes, then wash it off.
7. Oatmeal turmeric mask:
Do an oatmeal turmeric mask. This is a good treatment to try if your skin is on the oily side since it helps to cleanse the skin as well as lighten it.

Wash off the mask with water using gentle circular motions to exfoliate your skin as you go.
8. Papaya mask:
Make a papaya mask. Papaya fruit contains an enzyme called papain that helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. It also contains vitamin C. Choose a green papaya to make your mask since that’s when the papain is most concentrated. To make a papaya mask,

3. Changing Your Routine (Precautions and measures) to get Fair and glowing skin and Face
1. Protect yourself from the sun. Most of the normal darkening and discoloration of your skin is caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most dermatologists agree an SPF 15 is not sufficient anymore. Dangerous UVA and UVB rays are still reaching your skin. Wear a hat to protect your face when you’re outside.
2. Exfoliate your skin a few times a week. You can exfoliate your skin manually by using a body scrub or face wash with exfoliating particles. For your face, use a special brush with softer bristles so you don’t damage the fragile skin there. There are also exfoliating machines, such as the Clarisonic, that dig a little deeper to thoroughly remove the top layer of skin.
3. Be realistic with your expectations because the skin that is already naturally dark is very hard to lighten more than a shade or two, especially using natural methods. Keeping your skin healthy by protecting it from the sun, exfoliating and using natural lightening methods is your best bet for keeping it on the lighter side in tone.
