Let's be straight here, the objective should not be "white skin" per se, but skin that is free of spots, and is radiant and healthy. And the homemade creams for fair skin we are going to explore in this article will do exactly that.

Why should you make skin-lightening creams at home when over-the-counter products can do all that?

Firstly, these products are not what they claim to be! More often than not, these products are clogged with synthetic derivatives, toxic chemicals, harsh bleach and skin-chocking fragrances that can be only damaging to the skin.

Whereas, Ayurvedic creams for clear skin are 'au naturale', gentle on the skin and free of toxins.
