If you have fallen into the habit of bleaching your face, it can be then quite hard to give it up altogether or find a natural bleach. But are you aware of the damage these chemical bleaches do to your skin? Then leave a faint brown stain on your skin over a period of time, and enhance the growth of facial hair. Bleaching sessions at the salon should be an absolute no-no if you care to have a natural, soft skin with a bright complexion.
So if not bleaches, then how do you get a natural fairness and glow on your skin? No, we are not implying you invest on fancy creams and facial gels on the market. Just resort to this really inexpensive therapy at home using a very common daily ingredient from our kitchen.

2tbsp Rose water
1tbsp Honey or Lemon juice
Method of Preparation:
You need to first peel the skin of a medium-sized potato and then grate it. Add to it rose water and honey (if you have a dry skin) or lemon juice (if you have an oily skin), and make a thick paste in the blender. It should come out to have a rich consistency. Your potato bleach cream is ready for use.
Now apply it in a thick coat on your face particularly in the affected areas. You can even apply it on your hands and neck. Allow it to dry for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. Those with a bad case of acne, blackheads and dark spots need to do this thrice a week for one month, and you will notice the improvement in your complexion. Your skin tone would have become even, and spot-free, and all the fine lines and deep scars on your face would have vanished without a trace. It is cent per cent natural, and not to mention, cost-effective. You will be pleasantly surprised with the results.
