Q I am 21 years old. I have dark skin and I want to become fair. How can I quickly achieve this?


Use a facial scrub twice a week. You can either buy a facial scrub, or you can mix rice powder with curd and use as a facial scrub. Apply on the face and rub gently on the skin using small circular movements. Leave on for five minutes and then wash off with water. Do not apply the scrub on pimples, acne or rash.

Mix one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice and apply this daily on the face. Wash after 20 minutes. Or you could mix two teaspoons of curd, add a pinch of haldi and apply it daily, the same way. Wash it after 20 minutes with plenty of water.

Twice a week, apply a face mask. Mix 3 teaspoons oats with one teaspoon each of honey, curd and lemon juice, or egg white. Apply this paste on the face, avoiding the lips and the area around eyes. Wash after half an hour. (Oats will be available in food stores. It is used for making porridge). Mix the liquid ingredients gradually to get the right consistency. It should be a thick paste, which does not drip.
