We all want bright, healthy, and glowing skin. Well, who doesn’t!

And we also want effective results with minimal expense. Your skin care specialist or beautician might shun such a possibility, but wait, what if it is really possible?

We have come up with 20 amazing homemade skin lightening remedies that can give you the skin you wanted and also save your money. But, before we get into that, let us know the popular ingredients found in skin lightening products and how they work.

How To Lighten Skin Naturally

Given here are the popular skin lightening ingredients. Melanin is the key chemical substance found in our body that is responsible for giving our skin its color (1). The more the melanin is produced, the darker is our skin tone. For this melanin to be produced, an enzyme called tyrosinase is essential. Hence, most skin whitening treatments target this enzyme and block its activity (2). Some of the commonly used ingredients are as follows:

1. Hydroquinone

This is a primary ingredient that inhibits melanin production. However, a lot of controversy revolves around its involvement in increasing the risk of skin cancer. Due to this, most skin lightening creams and lotions are opting for other ingredients (3, 4).

2. Arbutin

It is a natural alternative to hydroquinone and is extracted from bearberry or mulberry leaves. It is known to have melanin-inhibiting properties (5).

3. Kojic Acid

During the manufacturing of the Japanese rice wine, kojic acid is produced as a by-product. It has been proved to slow down tyrosinase activity, hence aiding in skin lightening (6).

4. Azelaic Acid

This chemical is present in grains like wheat and rye, and it is a known tyrosinase inhibitor. It was initially used for acne treatment, but it is now used in skin lightening lotions as well (7).

5. Vitamin C

Fruits and vegetables containing vitamin C have been used since ancient times for getting rid of tan and lightening the skin color. It is also an excellent antioxidant for the skin (8).

6. Glutathione

Glutathione is an antioxidant and protects the skin from damage. Studies have proved that taking it orally lightens skin color and improves skin texture (9).

7. Cinnamomum subavenium

It is a Chinese herb that has been proved to inhibit tyrosinase activity. Hence, it is suggested to be used as a skin whitening agent (10).

8. Alpha Hydroxy Acids

These do no directly interfere with the production of melanin. They act as exfoliants and remove the dead and unhealthy layer of cells to bring the lighter layer to the top. They also increase the cell turnover rate (11).

9. Niacinamide

This chemical has been proven to be safe for topical application for skin lightening. It also reduces wrinkles and fine lines (12).

Here are some safe and reliable methods for skin lightening. They need just a few ingredients from your kitchen that contain effective skin whitening agents. Sounds great? Keep reading!

  • Lynda

    The only way that works and does not damage your skin is to wear a 50+ Sun Protection Cream – every single day of the year. You cannot ‘bleach’ skin and all of these home remedies are ways of exfoliating your skin to slough off the top layer that daylight has darkened to reveal the paler skin underneath. So AVOID ALL DAYLIGHT ON YOUR SKIN and it won’t go darker in the first place. Good luck!:)

  • Lynda

    The product that doctors recommend for patients with sun-damaged skin is pure vitamin A cream. It is cheap to buy in pharmacies, e.g. I use a brand in Spain called Retirides, which costs 14 euros per tube. It is an exfoliator which also adds moisture deep in the layers of your skin and you may have seen it advertised as Retinol in expensive skin creams. Just buy the pure Retin-A or pure Retinol vitamin A cream (any brand) and forget expensive ‘age defying’ creams that only contain a very low percent of the active Retinol/vitamin A in them. I’m a dermatology nurse.

    Am I the only one who thinks the glowing, bronze-colored side of the woman’s face above is MUCH prettier than the drab pink side? Well, I actually asked my children and they all thought the woman’s natural color was so much more beautiful. Your complexions are already beautiful, please do not feel you need to lighten them to be more similar to the pink tones of white people. I think they look beautiful pink and shouldn’t harm their skin with tanning and I think all shades of people are beautiful just like they are! Remember, they are often tanning to get browner like us! I understanding wanting your skin to look bright, clear and even, which is why I came here to lighten acne scars, but to want your face to be “whiter” is not a good goal for anyone, unless you were born that way.

      Hi Bridget, some of the causes of dark skin around the neck are diabetes, hereditary, obesity, polycystic ovary, exposure to sun, poor personal hygiene etc. The condition can be treated to a certain level by the right cleansing, scrubbing and moisturizing using natural methods. Reducing the weight of the person also helps if the darkness is caused by overweight or obesity. Some of the home remedies for dark neck are:
      1. Cucumber – Apply grated cucumber or cucumber juice on the dark neck. Gently scrub the neck for a few minutes. Wash it off after 15 minutes.
      2. Almonds – Make a paste of powdered almond and milk powder with honey. Apply this paste on the sides and back of the neck, where the skin is dark. Leave the mixture on the skin for 30 minutes and wash off with water. For more tips and remedies, check the article given below:

    Hi Rani, may be the product did not suit your skin and hence left black spots on your skin. Black spots take some time to disappear… so follow any remedy regularly for a couple of weeks to see the difference.
    1. Lemon juice – Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey.
    2. Oats – apply an oatmeal mask on your face and neck to remove dead skin and black spots. Grind half a cup of rolled oats. Add three to four tablespoons of lemon juice to make a paste. Scrub it on your skin and wash it off with warm water when it dries. Follow this treatment once or twice a week.

    Hi Ridhi, yes you can apply lemon juice to your skin but always remember to apply it in the evening or before going to bed. You can also apply during the day time but never step out in the sun after its application as it can lead to skin reaction leading to form spots. Wash your face thoroughly and apply a light moisturizer.
