What is the remedy about? Are there any side effects? What are the post-remedy guidelines? How long does it take to recover? Are the results of the remedy permanent? Is there any training or experts required?

What is the remedy about?

Being under the sun for too long without protection, pollution and exposure to dust can make your skin darker. To get a fair skin, follow these steps:

  • A. Wash your face with a mixture of rose water and milk. Mix a bowl of milk and a banana and apply it on your face and keep it on for at least 30 minutes and then wash it off. These mixtures act as natural antidotes. They wash off the dead tissues and dust and makes your face fresh and bright. Orange juice contains Vitamin C and Vitamin A which helps in minimizing spots, pigmentation and giving an evenly toned fairer complexion.
  • B. Take half a bowl of orange juice. Dip a small cotton wool in it and gently dab on your entire face. Wash it off after 10 minutes. Follow this process for a week and you’ll notice your skin getting visibly fairer.
  • C. Make a mixture of gram flour, turmeric and lemon juice and apply it over your face. Leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash it off and apply some moisturizer. Use it a few times a week for a month to get a fairer complexion.

Are there any side effects?

If you have a pale skin, applying turmeric might make your skin yellow.

What are the post-remedy guidelines?

  • Always use sun screen while going out .
  • During the dry season, use moisturizer.
  • Eat a lot of green vegetables.
  • Lemons and oranges should be taken regularly.
  • Use moisturizers regularly if you have dry skin.

How long does it take to recover?

There is no fixed time period as to when the effects of the remedies will appear. Sometimes the effects may appear even after a week, sometimes it might take a month. The recovery period depends on your skin type. However, normally natural remedies take longer but have very fewer side effects.

Are the results of the remedy permanent?

No, the post remedy steps are not taken, it wouldn't take long for you to lose your fair complexion. However, if you do take proper care, you can get a brighter fair skin with these home remedies.

Is there any training or experts required?

All the items used in the remedies are easily available in the market and can be prepared without any formal training.
