      Dude, c’mon, you’re black, and you will always be black no matter what!!!
      Can’t change that, so accept it!

      If your naturally very dark (African) than it will be hard to get lighter skin. You won’t be able to become white but can try to get a bit of a dark brown or brown skin.
      I myself was naturally born in a light olive skin however growing up my face and arms darkened and now I’m an meduim olive on those areas but white everywhere else. It’s really distracting and I hate the colour on my face!!!!!!! But good luck. You can try creams if not try lemon freshly squeezed onto face for 2 months. Worth a try?!

    I hope that “Trisah” and “Ansar” are faking trolls. If you have very dark skin you seriously can’t expect alnything to get you fair skin… Well, except for what Micheal Jackson got, an his “skin” doesnt look right. This is for people who have a-little-darker-than-fair skin or people wih fair skin, but got a tan that wont go away, (Had a friend like that xD she Overtanned one summer and it took so long to go back to its original color) So yea.

    Use gram flour, almond oil and rosewater and make a paste of it. Gently apply the pack to face and neck and wash it off with lukewarm water(don’t use soap or face wash after the application). This will help your skin to glow,mosturising the epidermis and removes oiliness. Try it…
