Follow the following steps to lighten your facial skin with aloe vera, almond oil and lemon juice.

Step 1

Just before going to the bed wash your face with mild antibacterial soap and water.


Take a fresh aloe vera leaf. (If you do not have a fresh aloe vera leaf then you can purchase commercially available organic aloe vera gel). Cut half an inch of a cube and extract the gel from the cube with a sharp knife. This will give you half a teaspoon of aloe vera gel or maybe a little more.

Wrap the rest of the aloe vera leaf in a polythene bag and keep it in the refrigerator for further use.


Put this half teaspoon of aloe vera gel from the leaf or from the purchased organic aloe vera gel in a small bowl.

Step 3

Now cut a lemon in two pieces and extract the juice in the same bowl. Mix the aloe vera gel and lemon juice well.

Step 4

Add half a teaspoon of almond oil to the aloe vera gel and lemon juice mix and thoroughly mix all the three ingredients. Your facial skin whitening is ready for use.

Step 5

Gently massage the prepared cream on your washed and cleaned face in a circular upward motion. Massage the cream on your neck again in upward motion.

Keep applying and massaging it until the entire quantity of the prepared cream gets over.

Go to bed and have a good night's sleep.

Step 6

Wash and rinse your face in the morning. You will notice the skin glow the very next day. Skin color will begin to fade slowly and within a week you will see significant change in the skin tone and glow.

You can continue this practice forever as it is very good for nourishment of your skin.
