lemon juice

A lot of people want the look of pale, porcelain skin. To get your skin to look paler, you need to get rid of redness and discolorations caused by sun damage or heredity. There are plenty of ways to do this. Some methods even give results in under 10 minutes.

Use a sunblock with a high SPF. The whiteness of the sunblock will make your skin paler immediately. Regular use will keep your skin from tanning. Use a parasol or wear a hat if you are out in the sun.

Blend foundation that is a few shades lighter than your natural skin tone into your hairline and under the chin with a makeup sponge. Dust cornstarch powder over it with a large cosmetic brush.

Purchase products made for Goths for a very pale look. Use white face creams and powders. Apply it evenly and blend it into the neck area below your jawbone.

Make a natural skin bleach with a tablespoon each of lemon juice, peroxide and glycerine. Mix together and dab onto your skin with a cotton ball. Avoid your eyes and hair.

Mix up a mask made of one part lemon juice to one part egg whites. Warm over low heat until it thickens. Apply it to your face, neck and shoulders.

Bring four egg whites to boil in a cup of rose water. Add 1/2 oz. alum and 1/2 oz. sweet almond oil. Mix until it forms a paste. Apply the concoction to your face and neck overnight.

Apply a commercial skin brightening and lightening cream twice a day. Purchase these at your local cosmetics counter, drug store, or online. Look for products targeted at reducing pigmentation and lightening the skin.
