Almond flour is one ingredient that is very useful and have been proven to be very active for skin whitening. It's one ingredient that can be found in skin lightening creams as well as organic creams.
Almond flour can be gotten from the spices section at any Mega supermarkets around you or simply make urs at home.
Get almonds, blend in a food processor or blender. Do not blend until u get a paste,rather it should be in form of a fine flour.

You can make this skin lightening cream(gotten from one of my favorite blogs ) from it.

Almond flour
1 teaspoon of Honey
Organic yoghurt /milk/egg white
1 teaspoon of Lemon juice

Simply mix everything together till you get a fine paste. Store in a refrigerator and use. Make in small batches,the ingredients are all perishable products and might get spoilt. I would sincerely advice you apply it at night,since these products work better when the skin is resting. Use a moisturizer and sun block or a product that has both such as Laurier Mercier,Philosophy Hope or Aveeno and others, during the day to protect the skin from UV rays, burns,scarring,thinning and darkening.

One of the best homemade facial masks you can
make is mud but I don't mean the mud from your back yard. Rather you can get the one from the beach,sea or ocean. The mud on the

considered harmful or pore-clogging. Most dermatologists believe that mud masks can help unclog skin pores. In fact, some people also use these masks to
help exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells.
Since oil and dead skin cells clog your pores and
cause acne, a mask may actually help prevent

You can combine mud and clay mask with other ingredients to provide some additional benefits
to your skin.
For example, masks with honey in
them can help increase the moisture content of
your skin, without making it oily [source: Sorgen].
If you have especially sensitive skin, you can look
for mud masks that contain ingredients like aloe
vera, witch hazel and jojoba oil -- these may help
soothe and heal the skin.

You can make these mud masks on your own and pamper your skin, free of charge from the comfort of your home.
1. Mix mud,aloe vera gel,rose water and oil(its best,you should use an oil according to it's function or the purpose of making the mask.
For moisturizing and toning- Rose or olive oil would do.
For acne-tea tree oil would be okay.
2.Mix mud, lemon/lime juice, yoghurt and honey to get a moisturising mask that lightens your skin and also keep acne and blemishes away.
3. Mix mud,egg yolk and milk thoroughly. Apply on your face and allow to sit for 10 minutes, then wash off.

Until my next post, remain blessed.
