Home made face packs are safe and effective with natural ingredients. For fair and clear skin, I always prefer natural face packs rather then chemical based products which are available over the counter. Some of the very effective natural home made face packs for fairer skin can be prepared from easily available materials at home as follows:
- Papaya face pack :Papaya has natural lightening properties and a face mask prepared from its pulp is very effective in obtaining fairer and clearer skin.
To prepare papaya face pack, mash pulp of papaya in a bowl and mix it with little milk to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your face for about 20 minutes and then wash your face with water.
Apply this pack twice every week for beautiful facial skin.
- Potato face pack : Squeeze out the juice of a potato and apply this juice on your face. Let it dry and then wash with lukewarm water. It is difficult to squeeze out potato juice so you can grate a piece of potato and then squeeze it to get its juice out. This is very effective for any darker body part and not just the face. Keep on apply and gradually you will notice a fairer effect on your skin.
- Lemon juice :Lemon juice has bleaching properties, thus applying the juice of a fresh lemon you your face will lighten the dark spots on your face. Sometimes, it you may get a bit of itching feeling; in such a case you may dilute a little bit.

Fairness packs that are readily available over the counter in any store or medical shop are usually contain 50-60 percent of chemicals and are hence unhealthy to our skin. Most important to note is that their prolonged use can make our skin dry,pigmented and freckles may also develop.
Using naturally made fair packs usually help in giving the skin a great feel as well make the skin glow. Just remember one mantra for a good skin-'Drink lot of water to keep the skin hydrated and healthy.'
Following are the natural fairness packs that one can use :-
1. Make some almond paste and mix honey in it. Apply on the face for about 15 minutes then make a loose paste of besan(gram flour) and turmeric in milk(in winter) or in rose water(in summers) and apply on the face and slowly rub it off. Wash the face with cold water to get a soothing and refresh ing skin.
2. One can also use the above mentioned besan paste only as a scrub.
3. Mix some choker(the residue left when wheat is grinded) and milk cream and apply on face for 20 minutes and then wash.
4. Mix crushed papaya, honey or papaya and almond paste and apply on skin for 15 minutes and then wash.
5. Mix sandal powder and rose water to give a soothing feel to the skin in summers.
6. Mix lemon juice in a little bit of almond paste and apply for about 10 minutes and wash it off.Never apply lemon juice directly on the skin since it may cause rashes because of its acidic properties.
7. One may also rub some potato and tomato peels on the face to lighten the dark circles and pigmentation.
8. One may also apply the paste of urad dal and turmeric and milk as a scrub.
The above packs would help anyone to bring out the real texture and colour of the skin.

In most cases, you need to use the face packs immediately after preparing for getting better results. Here are some safe home-made face packs for a clearer facial skin. Please note that mostly for Indians, the darkness of the facial skin is due to the accumulation of the dirt and pollutants of the face and if these are not washed away regularly this will leave the skin darker. So regular cleaning of the facial skin that too immediately after returning home from outdoors is very important for a fairer facial skin.
Some effective home-made face packs
- Pack with besan / gram flour and yogurt: Making a paste of gram flour using sour cream less yogurt is a very effective face pack which helps in regaining the natural cleanliness of the skin and thus makes the face look fairer.
- Orange peel pack:
This is another very effective pack for getting a fairer skin. You can collect the skin of the oranges, dry these and add few Bengal gram to it and grind it to a dry powder. Preserve the powder in dry air tight container and use it as and when required. You can take little of this powder and make a paste of it either using cream less curd or rose water and apply it as a face pack.
- Multani mitti and chandan powder pack:
Very effective face pack for regaining the natural fairness of the facial skin. Mix equal quantities of multani mitti and chandan powder and make a paste of it using rose water and apply it as a face pack.
- Honey and lime juice pack:
A spoon full of honey and lime juice mixed together and applied on the face gives an excellent result. Or applying only lime juice will also serve the purpose but sometimes it will leave an itchy or burning sensation on the skin.
- Just cream less sour curd;
You can even use only sour curd without mixing any ingredients to it. But make sure that it is a cream less curd and that too sour one as sour curd is good for the facial skin.
- Just cream of the milk;
Even apply only the cream of the milk as a pack will serve the purpose and help in bringing back the natural glow on the face.
- Aloe vera extract:
These plants are easily available. So get one plant and place it in a pot in your balcony. You can take the fresh leaf, take the sticky extract and apply it on the face. This will not only give a natural glow on the face but also help in making the skin smooth and soft.
- You can even make face packs using the pulp of the fruits like watermelon, papaya and cucumber.
- In the night time apply little almond oil on the face before going to bed and wash the face the next day morning. This will help in making the facial skin fair.
Please note that I am neither a beautician nor a cosmetologist but these are mentioned out of my own experience.

On my own I tried something for my daughter and it worked very well but after she stopped using it, the fairness slowly vanishes. So if you want to use this pack, please use it continuously.
Orange peels and lemon peels are very good fairness agents. Please dry equal quantity of orange peels or lemon peels and powder them. Take measure of this powder. If this powder measures 2 cups, add 1 cup of moong (green dhal dried and powdered) not besan and 2 tea spoonsful of turmeric powder. (you may even dry one piece of turmeric and powder it). Add all these powders in a bowl, mix them well and keep in fridge. Daily mix one tea spoon powder with plain water (if your skin is oily) or with milk (if you have a dry skin) mix it, apply it like a batter on your face. Leave it for 5 minutes and wash it for daily face wash. Don't use soap after this. If you are going out for a function / party, apply it two times and see the change in 15 days time.

There are many ways which can be followed for skin darkening and tanning. Home made remedies are the best in my opinion because i personally used to suffer from tanning but now i use home remedies to remove tan. These are the remedies:
1. Orange peel face pack: grind orange peels in mixer grinder or just crush the orange peels so as to make a paste. Add besan and atta with the paste and add water so as to mix all these together and apply on face and other tanned areas. Wash off when more than half dry and your skin will glow literally. Its very effective. Use for 1 to 2 weeks and sometimes with breaks of 1 day in between.
2. Lemon & Homey: Mix equal amount of lemon juice and honey and apply. Keep for 15 to 20 minutes and wash off. Use 2 to 3 times a week.
3. Lemon and cucumber: Mix equal amounts of lemon juice and cucumber juice and apply. Keep for 15 to 20 minutes and wash off. Use frequently for soothing the skin.
