Firstly, you have to realize that there is only so much that can be done to change the color of your complexion. Dark or black skin is usually a result of genetics and heredity and can be changed only up to a limit. In cases where darkened skin is caused by conditions such as hyperpigmentation or exposure to the sun, certain cosmetic procedures may help remedy the situation. Dark skin caused by illness or skin disorders may require medical attention to treat the condition.

If the cause of your dark skin is not a result of a medical condition, you can try the following home remedies aimed at lightening black skin:

  • Make a paste of one teaspoon each of honey, lemon juice and milk powder. Add to this half a teaspoon of almond oil and apply to your face. Let it dry for ten to fifteen minutes before rinsing off with cool water. The lemon helps naturally bleach the skin, while the honey, milk powder and almond oil moisturizes the skin and keeps it supple.
  • Blend oatmeal with some tomato juice and apply this thick paste to your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes before washing off. This acts as a natural exfoliant and helps lighten the color of the skin.
  • An ancient remedy to cure dark skin is to apply a paste of turmeric powder and lemon juice to the darkened areas of the skin.
  • Grind up orange peels and mix with lemon curd. Apply to the darkened areas of the skin to help it look brighter and fairer.
  • Medical or cosmetic treatments that may help lighten the color of your skin include chemical peels, dermabrasion, or laser therapy. Consult with your dermatologist to discuss the risks involved in these procedures.
Other ways to care for black skin include:

  • Avoid oily and spicy foods, as some believe that these can increase oil production in the skin and make it look dull and darker. Increase your intake of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains to improve your skin health and make it glow.
  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water to prevent dehydration and dry or lifeless skin. Water also helps flush out toxins and makes your skin look brighter.
  • Choose bathing and face soaps that contain natural ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E and grape seed extract to lighten the color of your skin naturally.
  • Always wear a sunscreen when stepping out and protect your skin from overexposure to the sun by wearing a hat or cap during the day.
