Purchase and apply one of the several brands of licorice-based whiteners on the market, including LicoWhite. Use this mixture twice daily for two to three weeks. Lemon is one of the most recommended remedies. Apply a whitening mask daily until the desired results are achieved, then weekly to maintain the skin shade. Leave on for around 15 minutes, before washing off with warm water. Two rare compounds are found in the licorice plant: glabridin, a skin whitener, and galbene, an antioxidant. Purchase either Kojic or Azelaic acid on-line or in any beauty shops across the nation. Pollution, the sun and normal wear and tear can discolour skin through impurities, especially on those with highly pigmented skin. Mix lime juice with turmeric powder and apply to skin.
