I have been researching and I'd like to know which one works best to lighten hyperpigmentation. I also heard turmeric has some has some sunblock properties.

I'm trying to make a skin lightening lotion for my skin which suffers a lots of hyperpigmentation, specially in my back, derriere,

Thank You!

Have you thought of using arbutin, kojic acid, or licorice? Those are more recognized skin lighteners?

Have you ever touched tumeric? It stains everything sunflower yellow and its incredibly hard to get off! I wouldn't put that stuff on my skin any day of the week.

40, fine porcelain skin, tendency to pigmentation no other issues. Rosehip oil is the cornerstone of my skin care.

I have never used papaya powder. However, I've used turmeric for a couple of months for acne, and it definitely did lighten my skin as well. My acne marks (PIH) faded super fast from it! It's awesome!
