Every girl dreams of having fair and glowing skin, but due to pollution and stress, we lose the glow on our face and it makes skin look dull and dark. There are many products that we see on TV and magazines for skin whitening, which claim to give instant glow or fairness within a week, but they are loaded with tonnes of chemicals which are not healthy for our skin and not very pocket friendly too. So, let us look at some homemade face masks which will lighten and brighten your skin. I have used these face masks myself, and love the results.
1. Honey and Lemon Face Mask
- Take one tablespoon of honey and one table spoon of lemon juice and mix them well.
- Apply this on your clean face and neck, leave for 15 minutes, and then wash it off.
2. Gram Flour Face Mask
- Take 2 spoons of gram floor, add a pinch of turmeric powder in it. Add milk and make paste.
- If you have oily skin, add a few drops of lemon juice also.
- Apply this on your clean face and neck, leave for 15-20 minutes. When dried, scrub and wash it off.
3. Milk Powder Face Mask

4. Cucumber and Lemon Juice Face Mask

5. Tomato and Gram Flour Face Mask

All the above face masks are easy to make and use. You don’t need more than 2 or 3 ingredients, and all the ingredients are always available in your kitchen. I am using these face masks from my teenage days. They were suggested by my mom and friends. So, all the masks are used and tested for their results. I would add one more thing here, for best result regularly use these face masks. Using face masks 2-3 times a week gives better result than using it 2 times in a month. So, go ahead and pamper you skin with these face masks to get fairer skin with natural glow.
