1. Sugar:

This is the best exfoliating agent you can try to get an even toned skin. Grind sugar granules into a powdered form and add water to make a paste. Now, add your face cream to it. Scrub your skin with the mixture and wash off with lukewarm water.


2. Baking Soda:

Do you have this in your kitchen? Then, you have the best solution at hand. Make a paste with a teaspoon of baking soda adding adequate amount of water. Apply it on your body or face and wait for a few minutes. Now, rub the damaged area gently and wash thoroughly.


3. Yogurt:

Not only does this give you an even tone but it also removes blemishes and revitalises your skin. Whisk some yogurt and apply it all over your face and neck. You can also add honey if your skin is too dry. Wash it off after 15 minutes to get a silky smooth skin.


4. Aloe Vera:

For treating any of your skin problems, there is no comparison with aloe vera. The gel can remove any dark shades and give you a glowing face naturally. Take the juice out of it and use it as a toner. Otherwise, you could also mix some aloe vera gel with any face pack.


5. Milk Powder:

The bleaching agents in milk powder can give you an even toned skin faster than any other products. Make a paste of milk powder and milk and apply it evenly. Concentrate on the darker parts like neck, around your lips, etc. Now, wash away with lukewarm water. Apply it four times in a week to get the best results.


6. Orange:

The vitamin C in orange not only lightens your skin tone but also provides you with enough nutrients. Make a pack with orange juice and turmeric powder. Now, apply it all over the damaged area and wait for an hour. You can get a better result if you let the pack sit overnight.


7. Honey:

Being a natural humectant, honey can keep your skin moisturised along with making it naturally glorious. You can use it directly on your face and body parts or mix it with any homemade face packs to get a better result.


8. Oatmeal:

If dark skin is the result of dead cell deposition, you need an exfoliator that can remove the stubborn dead skin layer and rejuvenate your skin tone. That natural exfoliator is nothing but oatmeal. Mix it with some tomato paste to get the maximum benefit.
