Pollution, dust, and chemicals can all dampen the natural brightness and glow of your fair complexion. While these factors affecting your skin are difficult to avoid, there are plenty of simple, homemade products that can help alleviate the effects. Many of the tips below contain ingredients that are likely already in your home. Special care for your fair skin is easier than you might think.
It should be noted that a major factor affecting the skin of fair people is the sun’s harmful rays. This being the case, always be sure to wear sunscreen before going outside. This goes for the face and all other exposed body parts. This everyday step will help slow the aging process and keep fair skin looking better for longer.
- HONEY AND GREEN TEA
Make a cup of green tea and allow it to cool down. Mix in some honey and rice flour until it forms a fine paste. Massage it into the skin, allowing it to dry before washing it off with warm water. This recipe gently exfoliates the skin and lightens the tones.
- LEMON JUICE
Lemon juice is one of the most powerful natural bleaching agents. It is also full of anti-bacterial elements. This means that rubbing lemon juice directly on the face can not only brighten fair skin, but also treat blemishes. Do not perform in the sunlight.
- TURMERIC AND LEMON JUICE
Turmeric is a powerful antiseptic agent that penetrates deep into the skin to treat and prevent infections. The vitamin C from the lemon helps lighten skin. Form a paste with lemon juice and turmeric and apply to the skin. Wash off after 10 minutes for best results.

Oats are a gentle exfoliator that flushes the skin of dead cells. This opens up the pores and allows the face to appear glowing. Simply mix lemon juice with rolled oats and rub gently on the skin.

- TURMERIC AND TOMATO
Turmeric provides the skin with an antibacterial boost that addresses infections like acne. Tomato contains an antioxidant known as lycopene, which creates a barrier for UV rays on your skin. This can help the skin to appear fairer, as well as glowing. Mash a tomato with turmeric to form a thick paste. Apply to the face before going out into the sun for added protection.
- MILK AND ORANGE PEEL
Milk cleanses clogged pores in the skin, while dried orange peel gives the skin a kick of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a natural lightening agent that can help to maintain the look of fair skin.
