  1. 1

    Add 2 tbsp ground oatmeal, 1 tbsp plain yoghurt, 1 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp lemon juice to a medium-sized mixing bowl.

  2. 2

    Stir thoroughly using a wooden spoon until a thick paste is formed. If the mixture is too thick to spread, add a dash of water and stir again. Continue until the desired consistency is reached.

  3. 3

    Apply the mixture to any area of skin that requires bleaching. Cover the area completely and allow the homemade skin bleach to dry on the skin.

  4. 4

    Wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then rinse the bleach away using cool water. Use a hand towel to pat the area, but do not dry it completely.

  5. 5

    Apply a mild moisturising lotion to the bleached area of skin to prevent drying. This treatment should be repeated at least twice a week until the desired colour has been achieved.

Tips and warnings

  • SPF-15 sunscreen can be used in place of moisturising lotion, especially if applied before an extended period outdoors.
  • High-quality olive oil is recommended, but any quality or variety of oil can be used.
  • Fresh pineapple or strawberry juice can be used in place of the lemon juice.
  • Do not store this mixture. Use what is produced immediately and discard any extra.
  • Do not ingest this mixture or allow it to come in contact with your eyes.
