Reader’s Query: How to whiten face instantly?
I have been getting lots of queries related to skin whitening. Some people literally look for the magical potions that could whiten the skin in just a snap of a finger. Honestly speaking, I do not believe in the skin whitening products, be it of any high brand. These products are instilled with chemicals that might give you the instant whitening effect but, in the long run, they cause more damage than good. One of my PG friends started using a skin whitening moisture of a renowned brand, used it for a couple of months- happy that her face has whitened and brightened. After a week of when she stopped using that product some red patches popped on her entire face. She double checked everything she had consumed or applied on her face in the week before. In the end when she failed to fathom the reason of this uncalled for trouble she consulted a dermatologist, who after examining and questioning her confirmed that the skin whitening cream was the reason behind these rashes. Even though that product did not show any traces of allergy or reaction on her skin during those 2 months of application it did not mean that it was doing all good. The aftereffects started popping up merely after a week of discontinuation.
Similarly, my mother in law had been using this very renowned skin whitening cream for last 8-10 years. A couple of months back I gave her one of my trusted creams (not a skin whitening cream), she used and liked it much. When she had run out of it, she asked me to get another pack for her. As we stay in different cities it took me almost 1.5 months to get that to her. In the meantime she tried to re-use her previous cream, on and off though. Every time she applied it on her face it caused burning and redness. Her skin had become so used to those chemicals that it could not accommodate the non-chemical laced product. That’s the reason I do not trust these skin whitening products, they get deep into the skin and damage it .
My secret remedy of getting skin whitening treatment is relying on homemade face packs. As these packs are purely herbal so they take some time in showcasing the results. But at least those results last long, without causing any harm. These days my favorite homemade face pack contains: Multani Mitti (Fuller’s earth), Yogurt, Honey and Lemon. During my last visit home, I got this formula from Mom. She keeps collecting these tips and tricks for me as she knows how badly I fall for home care remedies.
Well, most of my homemade face packs include multani mitti; the reason being it thoroughly cleanses the skin and keeps a check on greasiness. Nevertheless, according to my Mom’s recent home pack remedy you have to take 1 spoon each of Multani Mitti (Fuller’s earth), Yogurt, Honey and Lemon. Mix them well and apply a thick layer on face and neck. After 20 minutes wash it off with regular water and pat dry. Even if the pack is not dry or even semi-dry, wash it off. The results are instantaneous- skin looks clean, healthy and glowing, and skin feels soft and supple.
This is how thick I apply this face pack.
I apply this pack twice a week, normally on Wednesdays and Sundays. With each passing application I see noticeable improvement in skin texture and noticeable reduction in sun tan. A miraculous face pack for summers, all thanks to Mom. They are really the best gift from God , and know us better than we know ourselves.
