Excellent whitener for all types of skin

Submitted by kavitha thomas

To one tablespoon of cucumber juice, stir in a few drops of limejuice and a dash of turmeric powder. Mix well and apply over your face and neck.

Leave it on for half an hour and then remove it with ordinary tap water. This lotion makes an excellent whitener for all types of skin.

It worked Comments By: Sandra on 2005-06-29
Hi,thanks for the great tip.

I want to dramatically lighten my skin tone. Do you recomend any products that I can buy from the pharmacy that will help in lightening my face? I heard Biore' was good. Any suggestions? Can you tell me if there are certain foods that I can eat that will do the job? I eat lots of fish and I heard that foods high in mercury like fish and mushrooms will lighten the skin. Do you think this is a good idea??

thanks, great site!!!!

TipKing Says: Turmeric is a spice, you will find it in the herbs and spices section of any food store.

turmeric?? Comments By: stephanie on 2006-09-14
Doesn't that spice stain everything it touches to a yellow color. I haven't tried this but match sure to do a patch test so that you don't turn yellow.

Thanks for the recipe Comments By: Alexis on 2010-04-25
Ignore that incoherent troll "Disha," he/she probably one of those idiots that think there is something "racist" about one wanting to naturally whiten their own skin tone for their personal liking.

Thanks for the recipe - I've read a lot on turmeric and lemon juice being two of the main ingredients bleaching ingredients used in making pastes, but am new to using them (only a handful of times since I started last week). I've also read about cucumber juice, and ground-up potato juice (which is also a bleaching agent, from what I've read) being used - anyone have experience with these? I will come back and document my experience if anything seems to work.

Lime Juice? Comments By: Chelsie on 2011-04-01
before i post anything, to Disha, some people want to lighten their skin for a more even tone. People like me who have inconsistencies in melanin, find it easier to lighten the dark spots rather than making the rest of my skin dark. Now my question is does the lime or lemon juice burn and it seems like that would dry out the skin
