Even a baby can tell you how terribly hot it is in Nigeria This day, And i tell you this sun is so hot it can roast a barbecue. (just kidding).
speaking of hot, we all know the heat of the sun does make the skin color look darker than its original colour which really is not good for the face. Here is a DIY- Tumeric Face Brighting Solution You Need This Sunny Period.
Purchase turmeric powder and some fresh limes, which can most likely be found in a supermarket or from the malams selling ginger and other spices.
Make a turmeric paste and apply to discolored areas. The power of turmeric mixed with the natural bleaching power of lime juice will make for an effective whitener. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder with three tablespoons of lime juice to form a thick paste. Apply evenly to the face or desired area. Wash off after fifteen minutes with water. Do not use soap as this will wash away and counteract the power of the paste. This paste can be used daily until desired results are reached.
Mix turmeric with natural food oils. Turmeric and oils applied to skin penetrate deeper and can be left overnight, without the stinging feeling one gets from lemon juice. There is no set measurements for mixing oils and turmeric, but start with an even amount of both and add more oil for the desired consistency. Olive, coconut, castor and almond oils are all good choices for mixing with turmeric.
