Dark inner-thighs, neck and underarms are quite common than you might imagine and it can certainly restrict you from wearing certain clothes. Darkness is a result of friction, lack of exfoliation or moisturization, hormonal change or a skin condition. If these problems have taken a toll on you, here is a super-effective home remedy that can lighten your skin/darkness with few uses.
Licorice root powder- Liquorice contains ‘Glabridin’ which halts melanin production which is the main cause behind skin darkening and pigmentation. It helps lighten dark skin conditions and adds a healthy brightened glow gradually.
Aloe Juice – It is a brilliant humectant, moisturizer and skin nourisher. It also helps lighten skin tone.
Things you need-
- 2 tablespoon organic licorice root powder
- 1 tablespoon aloe juice (or more as per requirement) – how to make aloe juice
- Few drops Lavender Essential Oil
In a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of licorice root powder. Add in vegetable glycerine little by little and mix it well. Add more until you achieve a spreadable consistency.
Apply the paste on the inner thighs, underarms or neck and massage for a minute. Let it sit for 15 minutes and wipe it off. Rinse with water and you are done. You can use the mask everyday before having a bath for best results. READ MORE – CLARIFYING SCALP SCRUB for thicker hair
