DIY: All Natural Skin Lightening Cream to Get Rid of Dark Circles

In this DIY, I use turmeric, lemon, yogurt and coconut oil to create a facial skin lightening cream for dark spot around the eyes or where ever you prefer to use it. It can be dark spots from scars or under the arms. Make sure you apply it only to the dark areas to wish to lighten. Smells great as well. Feel free to look up the properties of turmeric and lemon and how they easily help to lighten the skin. Coconut oil is an antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial, great for acne and I use yogurt as a cream base, which also has lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to smooth rough, dry skin and prevent premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Use a blender or food processor to blend ingredients well.

Turmeric 2 large scoops
Lemon 1/2
Yogurt 4 large scoops
Coconut oil 2 large scoops (melted in microwave.)

Please make sure to test on your skin before full application for you use at your own risk.

Note:  Do not use this cream during the day since the first time I used it, it left my skin reddish, but when I woke in the morning, my skin felt soft and even appeared to have lessen the redness of bumps that were there before. I also noticed that under my eyes appeared lighter. I just rinsed off all the mixture with cool water after application so the residue remained on face over night to do it's magic. Also, the next few days after using it 4 days in a row, I noticed small dry patches of skin falling off! It wasn't a severe peel or anything like that, it was just dead skin lifting off and going bye bye. Talk about I got excited.
