Here's how to get rid of pigmentation:

1 Milk magic: Mix two tablespoons of whole milk powder or skimmed milk powder with Hydrogen Peroxide (available at the chemist shops). Make a thick paste. Apply to the skin and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

2 Cleanse and care: Mix 1/2 teaspoon of plain granules in your cleansing cream and work it into the skin by rubbing it gently. Rub all over the face but concentrate on blemished spots. The sugar will be absorbed into the skin. Rinse the face with cool water and finish a cold splash. In case of oily skin, use it twice a week. For dry skin use it once a week.

3 Almond helps: Crush some almonds or some cereal (broken wheat) and mix it in 2 tablespoons of honey. Mix them well and make it into a paste. Gently rub the granular paste on the face for 15 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

4 Carrot and vitamin C: Take carrot pulp and mix in it fuller's earth to a thick paste. Crush a vitamin C tablet in it. Apply the mixture for 20 minutes and rinse off. Follow this once a week.

5 Castor oil and vitamin E: Break vitamin E capsules and mix in a few drops of castor oil. Apply to the skin. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse off.
