DIY Natural Skin Bleach and Amazing Face Mask!

Commercial skin bleach is really harsh and damaging on the skin, so here's a safer, all natural alternative! Great for lightening your skin or even just problem areas like lips.
You will need:
- Lemon
- Vitamin E Oil
- Tea Tree Oil
- A container

I bought these cute little containers from Ebay:

STEPS:

1: Squeeze about 1/2 of the lemon
2:  Make the mixture about 1/4 - 1/3 Vitamin E oil
3: Add 2-3 drops of Tea Tree oil
4: Put the lid on and shake
DONE!

It's best if you apply this to your skin before you go to sleep and then wash it off in the morning.

NEXT: Amazing Face Mask!


This formula has been used since ancient times, it leaves the skin so smooth and glowing! 

You will need:

- 2 table spoons Gram Flour
- 1 Table spoon Almond oil
- 1.5 table spoon Turmeric
- Milk

1: Add the Gram flour, Almond oil and Turmeric into a bowl
2: Mix in some milk until the mixture resembles a thick paste

DONE!

LEFT: Turmeric Face mask        RIGHT: Turmeric Eye Mask

How to apply:

- Apply it in a thick layer, all over your face (avoiding the eye area) - you should probably make sure your hair is away from your face first!
- Wait for however long it takes until it hardens. You should not be able to move your face.
- Wet your face with warm water and massage the mixture into your skin. I like to do this in sections.
- Wipe away with a warm, wet cloth
- Pat dry
DONE!
(Depending on your skin tone, you might be left with a lovely golden glow or you may end up looking like you have severe liver problems! Don't worry if you're the latter! The turmeric will wash off, just keep rinsing until it's gone.).

NEXT: Mixture for the eye area:


You will need:
- 2 teaspoons Buttermilk
- About 1 teaspoon Turmeric
- A few drops of almond oil

Steps:

1: Mix
DONE!

How to apply:

1: Apply under and around your eyes, up to the lash line (be careful not to get any in your eyes!
2: Leave for about 20-30 minutes
3: Gently wipe off with a wet cloth (this is where you get some in your eyes if you're not careful!).
DONE!

To store, cover the mixtures:
They will last about 1 week in the fridge and a couple of days out of the fridge.

There are lots of different variations of turmeric masks, this is my favourite recipe for them! 

I slightly adapted Farah Dhukai's recipe.

Here are her videos:


I hope you try it!

    1. That's what the vitamin E oil is for. I always moisturise my skin after washing, so maybe you should do that? <3

    1. I've got it in my eyes before, probably about 5 times in total! It's just a little irritating. Just make sure to blink a lot if you do get it in your eyes - DON'T RUB YOUR EYES! You should never rub your eyes anyway, it's really bad. It's annoying but it should go away in like 10 minutes (if I remember correctly). The best thing is just to be really careful though! Good luck! <3
