i'm not sure if i asked this but i was diagnosed with Melesma from my dermo last year. i am light skin but parts of my skin is sun damaged. i have been looking for natural skin lightening products. I saw the list that some of the people recommend, but i can tell that they have nasty ingredients in them even if it does the job. i was wondering if anyone has any opinions or suggestions?

I have heard that most indian skin lightening creams are herbal. A popular brand is Emami Fairness cream. Check it out on the net if you are interested.

Fair and Lovely is NOT an Indian product. It is made by Unilever: the American giant who also makes Dove products. the Fair & Lovely ads show misleading & coersive photo shopped 'evidence' of their models turning dramatically almost totally white. Do not be fooled! Also, the word natural is misleading too. In order for ingredients to last, preservatives & stabilizers are added. Remember that Arsenic occurs naturally but it is a lethal poison. Perhaps a dermatologist can help you sort through all these different products and make the correct choice for your problem. Good luck!

The most effective treatment for skin lightening is Lemon n Potato...
Both these have skin lightening ingredients...Lemon is a bleachin agent..N obviously doesnt have side effects..Coz its natural..N to add to it, also helps in preventing n curing acne(If u have)...Its really good....Try it...
Mix lemon n Rose water in the proportion of 50:50 n apply. Keep for 20mins to half an hr n wash wit warm water...

While it is true that lemon juice can have a mild ightening effect, be aware that just because something is natural doesn't mean it will not have side effects. Lemon juice is highly acidic & many people get red, itchy irritated skin from it. Test a little on the inner fold of your elbow. Wait 24 hrs. If there is no reaction, then you can safely assume you are not sensitive to it. Remember that HEMLOCK, a deadly poison is 100% natural. Natural is not a euphemism for safe. There's a high enough concentration of ketones (lethal poisons) in some 100% natural essential oils to kill a person. I am not trying to discourage you from seeking natural skin lightening, just to warn you against those vendors who claim that their products are 'safe' because they're 'natural'.
