Turmeric Powder and Lime Juice
-For a fair skin, Mix a teaspoon of Turmeric powder and juice of half a lime to make a paste. That would finish into a thick paste. If you want it thinner, just add more lime. Apply it on your face and leave for up to 30 minutes. If you wish to use it on your body, make more mixture. Wash afterwards with warm water.
For Underarm Whitening
-Mix 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1/4 teaspoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of coconut milk.
*Clean the underarm with gentle soap and warm water. Pat it dry and apply the mixture. Leave it there for 15 minutes and wash it off.
Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice + Turmeric Powder is also a good alternate mixture as underarms whitening.
If the mixture leaves your face a bit yellowish, don’t worry as it’s just the stain of the turmeric. That is why we recommend applying the paste at night as the stain goes away the next morning in most cases. You will discover a more even skin tone after a 3-4 weeks of daily use.
