There are many night and day creams that promise whitening effect on the skin, but they are often ineffective.
Hands and feet are the most exposed body parts to UV-rays and environmental pollution.
The skin on these parts cracks easier and faster.
If you have more melanin in your body, your hand and feet skin will have a darker tone than the rest of the body,
so in order to prevent uneven darkening, you can try this natural remedy with lemons, which have the ability to lighten skin tone.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which lighten the skin tone and stimulate new cell growth.
Here’s how to prepare the remedy:
- Lemon juice
- Cucumber juice
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
- A pinch of turmeric powder
Mix all the ingredients to create a paste – the amount you use depends solely on your needs. Mix well until you get a creamy mixture. Apply the paste on your feet and hands and leave it on for 20 minutes, before rinsing with water.
Repeat the process for 15 days to see the difference – you can take before and after photos to really see how the paste works.
You can get a similar paste by mixing lemon and cucumber juice with a pinch of turmeric. The procedure stays the same.
After applying lemon juice on your skin, make sure you avoid sunlight for a few hours, or you will get adverse effects.
