1. Orange peel and honey

Citrus fruits are packed with vitamin C, which also acts as a bleaching agent. Honey is soothing on the skin and helps to get rid of blemishes. Grate the peel of one orange and mix with one spoon of raw honey. Apply the paste on your inner thighs and wash off after 15 minutes.

2. Coconut oil with lemon

Coconut oil helps to lighten hyper pigmentation on the skin. Mix two tablespoons of coconut oil with one teaspoon of lemon juice. Massage this onto the inner thighs for 15 minutes and wash off with warm water. Don't use soap at this point as it will remove the beneficial effects of the coconut oil.

3. Sugar, honey, lemon scrub

This scrub will help to shed the dead skin cells while lightening the thighs. Mix one teaspoon of sugar, one tablespoon of raw honey, and half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Rub this on and gently scrub in a circular motion for about 10 minutes. Wash it off with warm water and moisturise.
