Licorice extract for skin lightening is made by boiling licorice root and using the oil that is produced. This method may not be potent enough to guarantee noticeable results.
Licorice root extract may be purchased from a health food store. Apply the oil to the face using a piece of cotton. Allow it to dry over night and rinse. A mask can also be made and used twice a week.
