First, a very important disclaimer! In my personal opinion you should be happy with what you are! Every skin color is beautiful in itself and you should be happy with it. Nevertheless, just as some white people love to tan themselves, some people of brown or other skin color like to whiten their own appearance. Today I will explain to you how to use honey for natural skin whitening. It certainly will not change your race, but it will help you to clear your blemishes, even your skin tone as well as to whiten it!
Today there are many articles which claim that certain product or natural substances have whitening skin effect. Most of those articles overlook our most dear substance – honey. Yes! You can use honey for improving your skin’s health!
As I explained many times before, in previous articles, honey is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory substance! Due to these effects, honey has been proved to be helpful in fading acne, scars, hyperpigmentation and dark spots too.
Raw honey works by balancing bacteria on your skin making it an effective acne treatment. A study made in 2008 proves honey could even improve skin bacteria 100 fold. Furthermore, honey also increases your skin cell’s healing and reduces inflammation. This makes it great for treating eczema.
Finally, honey offers moisturizing and bleaching properties and brightens your skin tone. It certainly is a savior for dry and dull skin.

To bleach and even your skin tone make sure to use unpasteurized honey. That is crucial! Once you get it, these are the steps which you should follow:

- Before you apply it on bigger scale, you should apply a small patch on your arm to see if you are allergic to raw honey.
