We do our best to have a clear, glowing face, but often neglect the other parts of the body. How about a skin lightening cream that is natural, homemade and can make our hands and neck as fair as the rest of our body? Often the soaps or the shower gels available on the market make tall claims about refreshing you, making your skin soft and fragrant, but deliver on none of the counts. And your skin ends up looking dark, tanned and dull that you feel shy to wear cut sleeve tops or short skirts.
We suggest a master recipe of a bath paste made of ingredients from the daily kitchen that can instantly brighten your complexion, remove tan and make your face and body soft and smooth. This works better than any fancy soap or shower cream. This is natural, safe and extremely effective. Your skin will become clear and beautiful in one use. Try today.
