How to achieve brighter complexion naturally

Hi guys,

To achieve a brighter complexion naturally, you would have to get rid of the dull complexion caused by dead skin cells which have been left deposited on your skin and other causes like exposure of the skin to harmful sun rays, poor beauty regime and lifestyle due to stress or inadequate sleep and poor nutrition. The foods we eat go a long way in improving the appearance of our skin as such, one must eat colorful and green foods like fruits and vegetables and fibers.

The first step in achieving a brighter complexion is by exfoliating your skin as exfoliation is the only way to get rid of dead skin cells so as to make room for beauty products to work.


To make a brightening scrub which you can use to exfoliate your face and body, you will need:

Dry orange peels powder and brown sugar.


Get some fresh oranges and peel the skin after washing them. You can grate the peel or use a knife to remove the peel. The zest on the orange is as important as the orange peel as they both work together to brighten your complexion as well as remove acne and dark spots. I use orange because orange is a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidant; it is also mild and gentle, which removes free radicals and brightens the complexion. Once you have the orange peels, place them in a strainer or dish by the window where it gets direct sun light. Allow to dry for a day or two until completely dry. Once done, mill the dry orange peels into powder. Next, buy soft, fine brown sugar granules, which are better and kinder to the skin than the bigger granules.


For the face, you only need a quarter teaspoon of dry orange peel powder and a teaspoon of brown sugar. You can always adjust the measurements to use on more areas of the body.

It is recommended you exfoliate once or twice weekly so you can gently massage the scrub unto your face in a circular motion for about 20 seconds and rinse off with warm water.


To make a moisturizing creamy cleanser, you will need:

2 table spoon of fresh orange juice and

1 teaspoon of skimmed milk.

Skimmed milk is fat free and serves as a natural skin brightener and firms the skin as well. Combine the milk and orange juice and use cotton pad to cleanse your face. Once done, rinse your face with warm water. Do this every morning and night.


You can also use the orange juice and milk to mask, which is recommended to be done once weekly. The recipe for the moisturizing brightening creamy mask is as follows:

2 table spoon of fresh orange juice and

1 table spoon (that is 2 teaspoons) of skimmed milk.

Apply the paste all over your face and leave on your face for twenty minutes, afterwards you rinse off with warm water.

You can expect results in a week! Because I did see the results.
