#3 Besan and Turmeric

A pinch of turmeric in raw milk to be used as a cleanser daily to see the results.
#4 Raw Milk
Some people say this makes skin hairy 😛 but this works best used daily to remove dirt off the face after a long day.

#5 Buttermilk

Again, used as a cleanser this is an excellent bleach.
#6 Kesar

Like I said, I soak it in milk, mix with yogurt and besan and apply for 15 mins.


#7 Potato

Grated potato on the face till it darkens, this works a potent bleach.


Dry skin can apply it directly as well, and others mix with your fav ingredients in your packs.

Rub tomato slices on the face for a bleaching effect and for reducing pore size.

#12 Egg white

Japanese swear by egg white masks, this is perfect for lightening and skin tightening.

#13 Lemon

Add a few drops to your pack or rub a slice directly, sensitive skin be careful.

#14 Aloe vera

Apply the gel directly, works wonders.

#15 Oats

Powdered or rolled, mix them with packs or use it as a scrub, so useful to have in the kitchen.
