How to Get Fair Skin Complexion Naturally?

Everyone wants to look beautiful, attractive and want to know how to get fair skin naturally. If you also one of those and want to get fair skin complexion naturally then you must go through the steps I am going to mention in this article. I will explain some of the natural and proven ways to improve skin color and to get white skin.

Let me start the discussion with types of skin color.

What is Skin Color?

Before we start the discussion on how to get fair skin, I want to inform you about the types of skin color and the thing which makes it.

There are 3 types of skin color.

  1. White
  2. Brown
  3. Black

There is a hormone in our body called Melanin which controls our skin color. This hormone produces melanocytes in the body. The more melanocytes in our body the darker is our skin tone.

So, those who have white skin have very less amount of melanocytes and similarly, those who have dark skin have more melanocytes in their bodies.

Types of Skin

There are basically 3 types of skin.

  • Oily Skin
  • Dry Skin
  • Combination of both

Each skin type must be treated differently to gain fair skin complexion but the remedies or ways which I am going to mention are for each skin type except 1 or 2. I have clearly mentioned them in the article so don’t worry about that. Those methods where no precaution or note is written are for each skin type.

11 Ways to Get Fair Skin Complexion Naturally

Now, I am going to tell you how to get fair skin complexion with some of the natural methods. I am not going to tell you about beauty products (they do indirectly more harm than good), all the methods are natural and have no side effects.

Let me clear you one more thing, it’s not all about the products you apply on your skin (included both artificial and natural products), but your nutrition and lifestyle also have a great impact on your skin complexion. So, do not ignore the nutritional and lifestyle steps I have mentioned.

1. Drink Water

Water is essential to keep our body hydrated. If our body is hydrated then our skin also glow. So, drink daily 2 to 3-liter water. It is not only good for our skin but also prevents us from lots of diseases like Kidney stones, constipation etc.

According to doctors, drinking warm water is more beneficial for our health than cold water. So avoid drinking ice cold water.

2. Eat Salad

Vegetables also help in making skin glow and keeping it fresh. Eat salad daily, this will not only improve our skin color but also helps in losing weight. Eat tomatoes also as they help a lot in giving skin a shiny look.

3. Eat Fruits

It does not matter which fruit you eat, the thing which matters is that you eat fruits daily to keep your skin fresh and beautiful. Because fruits and vegetables have lots of vitamins which skin needs to glow. Try to avoid intake of vitamin tablets and increase the use of fruits. Fruits and vegetables are a natural and big source of vitamins.

One thing I want to mention, Vitamin C is very beneficial for our skin and oranges are rich in this. This Vitamin gives our skin an internal glow and makes it look beautiful and white.

4. Apply Milk on your skin

Milk also help in getting fair skin complexion. Along with massaging your skin with milk you also have to drink it daily for quick results. Drinking Milk not only gives you good skin but also provides calcium to the bones.

Massage it daily 2 to 3 times and you will see the results quickly. It helps a lot in removing dirt and flaws from your skin.

Please Note:- This method is for those who have dry skin.

5. Avoid Direct Exposure to Sunlight

Sunlight triggers the production of melanocytes in the body which darkens the skin. So avoid going out in direct sunlight. This also improves skin color.

Although sunlight is a big source of vitamin D which strengthen our bones. So it is also recommended to take sunlight. You can take it on the back of your body.

6. Apply Yogurt

Yogurt contains lactic acid which acts as a bleaching agent for our skin and gives it a fair look. You can either apply it directly to your skin or you can also add lemon juice to it. It works both ways fine.

Add 2 to 3 drops of lemon juice in the yogurt and mix it. After making a mixture apply it on your skin or your face. This cleans your skin and gives it a fair complexion. Apply it minimum 3 to 5 times a week for best and quick results.

7. Drink Juices

You can also drink juices which produce blood. For example carrot juice, pomegranate juice etc. Such juices also help in getting beautiful and glowy skin naturally.

Basically, it is all about vitamins which our body needs to glow. And juices are the best and easiest ways of getting them. Here I mean the fresh juices.

8. Lemon

Lemon is a bleaching agent and has properties to clean the skin. It is especially good at cleaning dark spots on skin like on elbows and feet. You can apply it directly to your elbows and feet but if you want to use it on your face then it is recommended to dilute lemon juice with water to avoid any reaction.

9. Wash your Skin/Face

Before going to sleep you must wash your face with mild water. Do it regularly to see quick results. Washing your face and all the naked parts of your body like arms, feet etc with soap remove all the dirt and you will see day by day a good improvement in your skin color.

10. Adequate Sleep

Taking adequate sleep daily ( 6-8h ) is very important. This will not only give your skin a shiny look but helps a lot in curing depression, preventing hair loss, increasing height and many other things. So to live a healthy life proper sleep is necessary.

Not only this but those who have dark circles around the eyes can get rid of them just by taking proper sleep.

11. Gram Flour and Eggs
