4 Ways to Get Fair Skin in Two Weeks

You can achieve a healthy and youthful-looking complexion with any skin-tone.

Whether you want to correct discoloration due to sun-exposure or aging, or you simply want fairer skin, medical science has some very good treatments. Even nature has its own solutions, too.

Mix orange juice with turmeric powder.. The vitamin C in oranges is essential for healthy skin.
It is also a great bleaching agent due to citric acid. Mix two tablespoons of orange juice and half a teaspoon of turmeric powder together.
Apply the balm to the darkened areas, or all over your face, if you like. Leave it on overnight and rinse it off with water the next morning.

Use this every day for the best results. Make sure that you completely cover the areas you want to lighten.
Keep in mind that turmeric has a staining effect, so your skin might appear orange or tan after using this mixture, which is probably the opposite of the effect you're going for.
Don't worry, once that effect fades, your skin will be subtly fairer because of the fruit acids and turmeric.
Lightening Your Skin Temporarily

Resurrect a trend from 18th and 19th century France.
Very pale skin was in vogue in France during the 1700s and 1800s, so aristocratic women would lighten their skin using cosmetics.
We can learn from their mistakes; they typically applied paint made from lead! Instead, try these safe alternatives:

Rather than matching your makeup to your face, select a shade of foundation one shade lighter than your actual skin color. Remember to also use concealer and setting powder one shade lighter than your skin. Blend the makeup into the skin at your jawbone and neck so that it fades gradually rather than leaving an obvious line that divides the pale skin on your face from the darker skin on your neck (or better yet, wear a turtleneck or scarf).
You can try out a version of this tactic without spending a ton of money on new cosmetics by simply purchasing a finishing powder in a lighter shade.
Apply it over your normal foundation and concealer, and if you like the effect, consider buying lighter foundation and concealer as well.
Trying OTC Lightening Products

Try lotions or creams containing niacinamide (Vitamin B3). This active ingredient is popular in Asian countries, where fair and luminous skin is generally in fashion, as well as in the United States and other places as an aid in fading dark spots and evening skin tone.

You can purchase a serum of 5% niacinamide online or in health food and general nutrition stores. It is thought to improve the condition and elasticity of the skin as well as improving skin tone.
You can also look for products with niacinamide as an active ingredient.
Some popular brands include Kate Somerville's Mega-C Dual Radiance Serum, Philosophy No Reason To Hide Multi-
Imperfection Transforming Serum, or Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence.
Using Prescription Creams, Chemical Peels, and Lasers

Use a skin bleaching cream. Most skin bleaching creams contain the drug hydroquinone as the active ingredient. You can purchase varieties which contain two percent or less of this drug at your local drugstore, while you need a prescription to get more powerful creams. These have between four to six percent hydroquinone. Use as directed on the package or by your doctor. This generally means applying it no more than twice daily. As with any other drug, hydroquinone has its risks. They include:

Premature aging
Increased risk of skin cancer.
The reason for this is that skin treated with hydroquinone is more sensitive to sunlight.
Skin discoloration
Allergic reaction
