Furthermore, there are number of people with age spots and blemishes who are also desperate to find out means to address their uneven skin tone.

How To Make Skin Whitening Cream At Home Using Natural Ingredients
I always say that homemade skin whitening creams are safer than the store bought skin whitening products.

For all the above reasons skin whitening products are in great demand these days. There are a lot of skin-lightening creams and lotions that are sold in department stores. But the irony is either most of these products are too expensive or do not provide us with the results that we are looking for. On top of that, they contain chemicals, which are not good for the health of our skin over the long run.

So, I wonder why don’t we consider preparing skin whitening creams at home? These are not only good at protecting and repairing our skin, but also can improve your skin’s tone, texture and complexion. Here, we have designed for you some very effective diy creams that will work wonders in whitening your skin and making it look healthy and glowing.

How to Make Skin Whitening Cream at Home? – Step-By-Step Guide

These recipes only require inexpensive ingredients that you can easily find in your kitchen. They are excellent skin whitening agents and will surely work provided they are used in the right combinations and proportions.

Just give them a try, and once you meet your skin’s perfect match, you will get converted for life! Excited? Read on!

1. Yogurt, Honey, Lemon Juice, Almonds, Turmeric Skin Lightening Cream: Almonds, lemon juice, and turmeric powder are some of the most effective natural skin-lightening agents. They have been used since ancient times because of their natural bleaching and brightening capabilities. In this recipe they are combined with the nourishing and moisturizing properties of yogurt and honey. The outcome is an amazing homemade skin whitening night cream that not only lightens, but also boosts the overall health and condition of your skin.

You will need:

(i) Yogurt / Curd: 1 ½ cup (plain, unflavored, unsweetened)

(ii) Honey: 1 teaspoon, organic

(iii) Lemon juice: 2 tablespoon, freshly squeezed

(iv) Sweet almonds: 4

(v) Turmeric powder: A pinch


(i) Crush the almonds in a food processor, until you get smooth, fine powder. Keep a watch as you need them in powder form, so don’t process them for too long as that would turn them into almond butter. Alternatively, you may buy a pack of pre-crushed almonds, labeled as “almond flour,” or “almond meal,” in case you don’t have a food processor.

(ii) Mix the almond powder with the honey, lemon juice, turmeric and yogurt in a small glass bowl. Stir the mixture well to blend all the ingredients together completely.

(iii) Transfer the cream into an airtight container and store in a refrigerator. You can use this cream up to 7 days only. Thus, make it in small batches at a time, so as to not use a contaminated product.

How To Use?

Take out the cream container from the fridge and scoop out required amount. Message gently a generous amount of this homemade skin lightener daily at night before going to bed. At night, skin goes through a recovery cycle during which hormones are released that increase blood circulation and open up pores, making it easier for cream to penetrate and be absorbed. Apply it regularly, and you will see positive results in 2-3 weeks.

Caution: Do not apply during the day because lemon juice can make your skin ultra sensitive to the sun.

(iii) Mix in the milk cream slowly, 1 teaspoon at a time. Make sure to stir the mixture well while adding it. Continue adding the milk cream until you get your desired consistency.

Natural Beauty Tips:

(i) Our skin goes through a recovery mode as we sleep at night. Also the hormones are released, blood circulation is increased and pores open up. As a result, it becomes easier for a cream to get absorbed and penetrate through the skin. Thus, skin-whitening ingredients act more effectively at night,

(ii) The creams containing lemon or lime juice should not be used during the day due to the potential sun exposure.

(iii) Having a clear, glowing and healthy skin is far better than having a fair complexion. So, eat healthy skin diet, including foods that are good for your skin and take good care of your skin.  These all will reward you with healthy, glowing skin.
