There are many kinds of skin whitening remedies that you can try at home. Nowadays, the market is flooded with different kinds of skin care products, they are full of harsh and harmful chemicals that can cause irritation and allergies. It is therefore important to learn how to make your own skin whitening remedies at home so you can avoid harmful side effects that come with the use of artificial products.

The following are the most popular skin whitening techniques that are easy to make at home:

Almond paste:

If you have almonds at home, you can soak these in a bowl of water overnight. Peel the almonds in the morning and grind into a paste. Add two teaspoons of honey to the ground almonds; place this in a container with cover. You can use this as a paste to exfoliate skin. Use the mixture every day as a facial wash or an exfoliant. Be sure to rinse your face completely and pat dry with a clean towel.

Gram flour:

Gram flour is an effective skin whitening ingredient. Mix 2 tablespoons of gram flour with, add a pinch of turmeric to the flour and several drops of lemon juice. Make the mixture into a paste and place in a covered container. Apply directly to clean skin and scrub it off after several minutes. You can apply this gram flour mixture all over the body, especially in dark areas of the skin like the elbows, knees and the armpits.

Orange peels:

Orange peels still contain significant amounts of vitamins and minerals; instead of throwing them out, you can make them into skin whitening remedies. Dry the orange peels under the sun and when the peels are completely dried grind them into powder using a blender or a food processor. Add milk to make a paste. Place the mixture in a covered container and Apply it all over the affected areas, after cleansing skin thoroughly. Allow the mixture to dry and then rinse completely with lukewarm water. You can repeat this skin care regimen to make skin whiter every day.

Lemon juice:

Squeeze fresh lemon juice from one or two lemons; add a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Mix and apply on your skin as a face mask. Rinse completely after 30 minutes.


Oatmeal can rejuvenate skin to make it whiter and glowing. The rough texture of oats makes a good exfoliant when combined with yogurt or tomato juice. Mix together to form a paste and apply onto clean skin. Allow the mixture to harden, this allows the folds of the skin to remove trapped dirt and oils; after 30 minutes, wipe off and rinse. You can do this remedy every weekend; it’s just like getting a spa facial treatment.


Sweet smelling chamomile flowers may also be used for skin whitening. Pick freshly opened chamomile blossoms and dry them under the hot sun. Boil a cup of water and place 3 teaspoons of dried flowers; allow this mixture to boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the remaining fluid and add honey and rose water. Place the mixture in a covered container. You may apply this mixture onto clean skin and let it remain after 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse your face completely and pat dry with a soft towel. Regular use of this skin whitening remedy can make skin whiter, healthier and protected from pollution and the harmful rays of the sun.


Make your skin whiter and refreshed with mint leaves. Prepare freshly picked mint leaves; clean individual leaves and ground them into a fine paste. Apply to the entire area of the face or in areas of the skin which needs whitening. Let the ground mint stay on the skin for several minutes then rinse completely. Discard any remaining mint that was not used; always use freshly ground mint for your daily skin care regimen.

Aloe vera:

Gather thick aloe leaves and cut them into small pieces exposing the gooey flesh or juice. Place this juice in a container and apply onto clean skin. Aloe will make skin firmer and rosier after several uses. You can use this instead of purchasing aloe skin care or hair care products.

P.S.:  Dear readers, Your skin color comes from our birth moms and dads. every skin is beautyful. white skin is not the measure of the beauty. the remedies mentioned above are useful for dark stops and patches that we get from the excessive exposure to the sun pollution and chemical use. they will not change your original skin color, nothing can do. and I think you should not wish for it. You are beautiful in your own way, embrace it and enjoy it.
