How to Make Fairness Night Cream at Home?

As all we know, the thing 'skin fairness' is a huge craze among most of the Indian women. But our born skin colour is something we cannot change naturally. Chemical bleaching, whitening and other skin lightening treatments can give you a temporary brighter skin or end up in resulting a PALE unhealthy looking skin but only natural ingredients can work on your skin to bring out that original brightness. Don't mistake the word brightness for white skin. Pale, dusky, tan olive or dark, whatever skin type you have, your skin is beautiful if it is bright and glowing! A dark skinned, flawless, supple and glowing skin is seen beautiful when compared to a pale skin with dullness and blemishes. Don't you agree?
