Bright and radiant skin is a sign of healthy and problem-free skin. We all desire perfect skin but even the healthier looking skin if closely observed has flaws. Indulging in high-end brightening creams, sweet-smelling scrubs, and luxurious moisturizers is draining on your wallet and your medicine cabinet. Not only do they make a hole in your pocket but also treat your skin with some amazing chemicals and luxurious side effects! Besides, not all commercial skin brightening products work; and those who work have temporary effects!


Here is an easy DIY skin-brightening mask with long term effects with regular usage. Before heading on to the recipe, let us know its benefits.


  • Easy to make
  • Contains no chemicals and is all natural
  • Lemon Juice may aid in the lightening of dark spots left by acne scars, aging, and hyper pigmentation.
  • Honey has mild bleaching properties and adds a beautiful glow to the skin.
  • Black tea lightens the complexion.
  • Egg whites lighten the skin color and help tighten pores.
  • The mask not only brightens your skin, but also prevents blackheads and white heads due to baking soda.


Things you need:

  • ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon organic and raw honey
  • Egg white from 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda


  • Combine all the ingredients properly.
  • Wash and dry your face, and then, using your fingers or a small brush, spread the mixture over your entire face, avoiding the eye area.
  • Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, or until it has completely dried and feels tight on your skin.
  • Now, spray some warm water on skin and massage for few minutes. This way, baking soda will exfoliate your skin.
  • Rinse the mask off with warm water, using a washcloth to gently wipe the mask away.
  • Splash your face with very cold water and gently pat dry.

Caution – Patch test before use.
