How to Lighten Your Skin Naturally



It's no mystery that sunblock should be your best friend! So before heading out to school or work in the morning, make sure you apply at least an SPF 15 to your hands and face as they are prime areas for age spots. If you wear foundation, find one with an SPF to lighten up your load.

Make Your Own Mask


There's nothing I love more than having a night in and making my own face mask. There are so many to choose from, that you're sure to find the perfect one for your skin type! One of my favorites is the banana oatmeal mask which leaves your skin super soft and bright! Make sure to use once a week!

Licorice extract is a great way to lighten your skin since it's actually a natural skin lightener. Just apply a thin layer in the morning after cleansing and before moisturizing, and another layer before bed. Make sure to store in a cool, dark place. You can purchase licorice extract at health food stores or online.
