A Highly Effective, Natural Skin Whitening Mask

June 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 242

There are millions of people globally who regularly use skin bleaching products for various reasons. Some people may have naturally dark skin and they use an overall skin bleaching product for their entire body, while others desire to fade age spots, freckles or scars. Today this industry is so large that every single year there are thousands of new products that appear on pharmacy, supermarket and beauty store shelves.

Natural Remedies for Skin Whitening

However, many people have a preference for natural, homemade skin whitening products, since these products only contain fresh, natural ingredients and therefore can cause no damage to the user's health. If you are health conscious and would like to avoid the harmful ingredients contained in commercially developed pharmaceutical products, the following recipes will help you get the skin you want without you having to worry about the side effects of harsh chemicals or damaging compounds found in pharmacy bought skin whitening products.

Rose Hip, Papaya and Honey Mask

Rose Hip Oils is known to delay the aging process of the skin significantly, since this oil is an incredibly rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which you can't get enough of after the age of 30. When your intake of vitamin C and antioxidants is insufficient over the age of 30, the rate of your skin's aging process will be significantly faster. We all know that with aging everyone tends to have age spots, uneven skin tone and hormonal hyper pigmentation. Therefore to delay the manifestation of these skin aging signs, you need to pump your body with vitamin C and antioxidants both topically as well as through your diet.

Papaya is the most popular component in skin whitening remedies in Asia for a good reason. This delicious, vitamin packed fruit contains a valuable component known as papain. Papain is known to be a powerful skin whitening enzyme, this is why the regular, topical application of this fruit on the skin can achieve incredible results.

Honey is also known to delay the signs of aging as well as this miraculous gift of nature has potent anti-bacterial, anti-biotic and anti-septic qualities. It is known to speed up the skin's cell turnover as well as it can speed up the skin's cell metabolism and healing process.


To prepare this mask you need to begin with washing, peeling and chopping or perhaps blending a piece of fresh papaya, which would make up about 1 tbsp of papaya mash. Add a teaspoon of rosehip oil, which should preferably be organic and cold pressed. Add a teaspoon of honey and mix or blend the ingredients thoroughly into a smooth, watery paste.

For best results, it is not only important to wash your skin thoroughly, but if you make an effort to exfoliate your facial skin before application, you will improve your skin's ability to absorb and use the natural ingredients in this mask. To begin with, use this mask once or twice on a daily basis at least for 1 week, and 2 to 3 times a week after.
