Who does not want a flawless, blemish free and fair skin? We all have the secret desire to look beautiful, and for many, beauty is incomplete without the fair skin.

Everyone with a darker skin tone often looks for the best homemade beauty tips for fairness which can make the skin look radiant and glowing.

Moreover, in today’s pollution filled and stressful environment, our skin tends to lose its radiance and becomes lifeless and dull. That’s why we all need some homemade face packs for clear skin which are free from any harmful and skin damaging chemicals.

Before we discuss how to lighten skin naturally and permanently, let’s first understand that why people have different types of skin tones and colors.

Why our skin looks darker?

While some people are naturally fair, others have darker skin tones ranging from wheatish to brownish complexions. Melanin is the pigment which is to blame for the dark skin, as melanin produces “melanocytes” which are responsible for imparting the complexion to our skin. The less melanin you have, the fairer would be your skin. However, it’s not good for our skin to be deficient in melatonin. Wondering why?

Melanin is an extraordinary absorber of light, and thus, it is capable of dissipating more than 99.9% of the absorbed harmful UV radiations. That’s how melanin protects our skin cells from getting damaged due to UVB radiations, thereby, significantly reducing the risk of the skin cancer.
