This skin whitening masque is just like “cake mix” or “buttermilk pancake mix“. All the necessary active ingredients have been dried & grinded down to a fine silky powder, and you add the wet ingredients to activate the mix. Skin whitening masques take a little bit more effort than the creams, but they whiten skin even better or faster than creams because you can include active ingredients that are highly unstable & oxidize too easily (vitamin-C) in creams. These skin whitening masques also have a longer expiration date, since there is no water or moisture to cause rancidity/spoilage/oxidation, which is inevitable with creams.
This instant whitening masque contains 45% hydroquinone and 35% vitamin-C and is best for individuals whom are currently using 15% Hydroquinone daily, or higher. You can either use this masque for special occasions, or use it daily as part of your skin whitening regimen. This masque is great for daily use on tough areas like hands, feet, knees, buttocks, etc. If you’re new to skin bleaching I suggest you start with the hydroquinone creams first, then later add these whitening masque to your daily regimen. This instant whitening masque can be diluted to lower strengths by diluting it with Fuller’s Earth Clay and/or Potato Starch Powder. By the time you mix in the wet ingredients this masque will be about 40% hydroquinone and 30% vitamin-C content.
This masque is very potent and it is very important that you perform a patch test before doing a full application. In order for this instant whitening masque to work you must:

Vitamin-C is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals, evens skintone, and whitens skin. Other than skin lightening, it prevents weakening of collagen and ensures the integrity of the skin is maintained. It also helps to heal wounds and reduces capillary permeability. This slows down the process of aging and maintains brighter and lighter skin.
- It exfoliates the skin and helps get rid of dead skin cells which
are darker exposing the lighter & brighter skin cells below.
- Vitamin C increases Glutathione levels that cause the skin to
make a type of melanin called “pheomelanin” which is yellowish,
instead of eumelanin which is darker.
- It helps regenerate of skin cells and repairs damaged skin.
- It inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase which is responsible for converting
tyrosine into melanin hence less melanin is produced.
- Vitamin-C is acidic which helps to cleanse the skin and eliminate infections
that may have been caused by micro-organisms. This keeps your skin
healthier, brighter and smoother.
Ferulic acid is a natural whitening agent, but it is usually combined with the vitamins C and E because it helps stabilize them. Vitamin-C is easily destroyed by heat, metal, and sunlight, it also oxidizes quickly. Ferulic Acid & citric acid prevent vitamin-C from oxidizing. When vitamin-C is stabilized, it becomes more powerful, in whitening skin and stimulating collagen production. Ferulic acid is known for evening skintone, fading freckles sunspots & splotches. In this case I have added ferulic acid to protect the hydroquinone and the vitamin-C.
Fuller’s Earth Clay
Is a miracle clay that has been used for centuries by the Indian women as a beauty mask. Fuller’s Earth Clay, known as “multani mitti” in Hindi, is extremely rich in minerals and when applied to the skin it gives the skin an intense glow and color. The powerful cleansing, bleaching, and oil-absorbing properties of this clay work instantly to whiten skin. Fuller’s Earth clay has been widely used as a skin-whitening agent and is best known for its ability to be applied as a “facial bleach.” It marvels in comparison to other “whitening clays” (i.e. kaolin).
The use of pearl powder as a cosmetic agent to beautify and whiten skin has been well-documented throughout history. Pearl powder has been used in both Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. China’s only female emperor used pearl powder to maintain her beauty. The empress, Wu Ze Tian (625 AD – 705 AD), regularly took pearl powder internally and used pearl cream on her skin. When she ascended the throne at 65 years old, her beauty had become legendary and her skin was said to be as radiant as a young woman. According to an ancient Chinese medical book (Ben Cao Gang Mu or Materia Medica), pearl powder can stimulate new skin growth and healing, release toxins, as well as remove sun damage and age spots. Today, scientific studies are uncovering that pearl powder can stimulate the skin’s fibroblasts. It can also help regenerate collagen, thus improving skin tone and creating more youthful-looking skin. Research has also shown that pearl powder can speed up healing for various skin conditions such as redness, rashes, wounds, and burns.
Royal Jelly Powder
Royal jelly is a thick paste-like substance secreted by honeybees to feed and nurture queen bees. It’s commonly used as a skincare & anti-aging ingredient. Royal jelly contains high concentrations of enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients that are beneficial to human skin. Royal jelly contains also contain fatty acids & all the amino acids that are essential for human nutrition. The fats from royal jelly moisturizes, protects skin from dehydration, and reduces skin inflammation. When applied directly onto burn blisters, royal jelly heals wounds and stimulates skin regrowth. Royal jelly also has antibiotic and fungicidal properties. I add royal jelly to help sooth your skin as it goes though this quick intense process.
Raktachandan Red Sandalwood Powder
Is one of the best natural ingredients for skin whitening and anti aging. Red Sandalwood Powder is known for its efficacy to remove uneven patchy skin, even skintone, and give glowing skin. It is also removes suntan, hyper-pigmentation spots, dark marks, and blemishes. Red sandalwood powder is an excellent exfoliator that deeply cleanses the pores & helps shrink pore size. The anti-bacterial properties of red sandalwood also helps to treat acne and pimples.
Goat Milk Powder
Milk itself has been used as a powerful skin cleanser and beauty enhancer since ancient times. Cleopatra was known for her infamous milk baths that kept her looking youthful and breathtakingly beautiful. Goat milk is known for naturally whitening skin when used daily in a face masque. Goat milk powder is goat milk that has had all its water content completely evaporated and only the solid material is left behind. Goat milk powder is more potent powerful and effective than liquid goat milk for natural skin whitening.
For ages, almonds have been used to naturally whiten skin & even skin tone. Almonds are packed with vitamins and nutrients that repair damaged skin/tissue and speeds up the cell-renewal process.
Indian women have used Besan for centuries for skin whitening. Besan is really useful as a tan removal agent when applied to skin. It also fades dark marks from acne, scars, and blemishes. It removes black heads & exfoliates skin too.
Turmeric contains a powerful compound called curcumin. With regard to skin whitening, curcumin effectively resolves hyperpigmentation as well as melanin production. When outside factors cause an increase in melanin production, the ACTH hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland. This hormone supports MC1R, and this is one of the proteins that stimulate melanin production. What curcumin in turmeric does is it restricts the ACTH hormone. This then reduces hyperpigmentation and thus lightens the skin. Turmeric also reduces inflammation & redness which is one reason why I added it to this masque. This is an intense skin whitening process & you want to prevent redness/inflammation as much as possible.
Orange Peel Powder
Orange peel Contains limonene which brightens and lightens skin. Limonene is a phytochemical that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that lighten scars by bleaching the affected part. Limonene is a compound naturally found in all citrus fruits, which may be used to prevent cancer, boost your metabolism, relieve heartburn, and reduce stress and anxiety. Limonene increases the production of new cells and blood vessels and improves skin healing after an injury. Limonene heals/shrinks/removes skin tumors. Limonene is also used to make all natural earth friendly household cleaners.
Lemon Peel Powder
Lemon Peel contains concentrated vitamin-c & citric acid. Vitamin-C is a natural skin whitening agent and is good for evening out skintone. Citric acid chemically exfoliates dead which reveals new & lighter skin underneath. MSM works best in the presence of vitamin-C.
In high doses, MSM is an effective skin whitener. It heals, removes inflammation, soothes, and tightens skin at any dose. MSM has many skin benefits and is well known for beautifying skin in many ways. In small amounts, MSM works as a penetration enhancer for active ingredients, which is why I’ve added to this masque.
Vitamin-A is one of the most important vitamins for the appearance of the skin because of its small molecular structures. These tiny molecules have the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work to repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin reside. Vitamin-A smoothes wrinkles, repairs damaged skin, protects skin from infection, protects skin from UV damage, evens skin tone, and clears acne.
