    It was great for me! It tingles but it didn't burn my face at all or give me acne. If your skin is cracked then I wouldn't recommend it.

    I've heard of Korean skin whitening products. A chemical peel might help. http://www.omniya.co.uk/beauty/treatments/peels/

    Yeah after some weeks I could see clear results. It just takes patience tbh. The results can take a while to appear but it works

    I would recommend you to use “Honey” on your face. Honey is the natural ingredient free from chemicals that without drying gives a glowing and shiny effect to the skin.

    Licensed treatments for uneven pigementation are usually based on hydroquinnone, in differing strength topical applications. They are usually prescribed by a dermatologist and have to be used very carefully as they can damage the skin and, ironically, make hyperpigmentation worse if used incorrectly.

    There's a lot of black market topical applications on the internet which claim to lighten skin, some based on hydroquinnone, but should be avoided - you don't know what's in them/what strength they are and they could cause serious and irreversible damage to skin. The safest thing is to see your doctor if you're worried about uneven pigmentation.

    To make a skin-lightening mask, combine one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice, one tablespoon of powdered milk, and one-half teaspoon of almond oil. Mix them well and apply it gently on the skin. Leave it on for 10 to15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.

    Hi have researched a little on hydroquinnone and saw that only doctors can prescribe this .. I have also read the side effects and in all honesty I don't think this will actually work on my skin

    Hi , does this actually work .. I've been using something similar which is:

    tumeric, gram flour (besan), honey, rose water and little bit of milk????

    And can the lemon juice be the one you get from the bottle or?

    Let's be serious people! These 'natural' skin lightening properties do not work.
    DO NOT USE LEMON. It burns, and it makes your skin super sensitive.
    Mate, are you using the obvious? USE SUNCREAM with a good SPF.
    Also, try using retinol. It peels your skin, and it gives you an even skin tone.
    Again use suncream. Yes, all day everyday. Even when it's cloudy, due to the sun rays.
    That's what I used after using bloody natural remedies.
    I'm all for natural, but not when it comes to skin lightening.
    You need to use something proper.

    I use the same but with yoghurt instesd of milk, it gives it a better consistency and dries better. It's supposed to be good for removal of light hairs too, if you let it dry up completely and then peel/scrub it off instead of applying water straight away
