My eyes get pleased when I see a woman with alabaster skin and it’s not fallacious that the fairy tales like Cinderella, Snow-white and Sleeping beauty portray women as light-colored. We keep saying that dusky look is prepossessing just for the sake of convincing ourselves but the reality is that fair skin is the one that glows, one that is beautiful and stunning. However it is impossible to get the snow-white look and the fact is that everyone has a different complexion which cannot be amended. But it’s possible to de-tan our skin and make it glow. Lightening your complexion will make your skin free of tan and makes your skin look fresh. It’s quite natural that we get exposed to sun, dust and smoke everyday which make our skin dull. It is necessary that we remove the tan from our skin and make it fresh. It is important that we keep in mind our skin type and choose cosmetics. At times our skin becomes allergic to certain chemicals, so it is wise to use natural treatments to get fair skin. Lightening your complexion is a long process and the prerequisite is patience.

Stay away from sun

Getting exposed to sun will increase the melanin pigment in your body and makes you look dark. It may not always be possible to stay away from sun, so use sunscreens with SPF 30. UV A and UV B rays produced by the sun are harmful to skin.  Apply the sunscreens evenly on your body especially to the exposed areas. Wear hat when you go out in the sun and try to wear clothes that cover most of your body to prevent tanning.

Clean your face
