Today, I am going to inform you all about some natural remedies to remove freckles and dark spots. First, let’s understand what freckles are; freckles are flat, round and brown tiny spots that appear on the skin. They can occur all over your body, but mostly they occur on the areas that are most often exposed to the sun.
In some of my articles, I told you guys that I have freckles on the half of my face (right side). Sometimes, it gets very annoying when people keep asking about the pigmentation on my face.The freckles on my face are not there since my birth. They started to appear during my puberty age, somewhere in 2007-2008. I have undergone many treatments for these, like chemical peels, laser surgery, yellow peel etc. Also, I have used many creams and medicines, but nothing worked! Then, I have been trying these all natural tricks for about 3 months now and guys, these seriously worked for me. They have brightened my complexion, and treated my freckles. So, I thought to share these tricks with you. These tricks also work on sun burns, pigmentation, dark circles and scars.
How Are They Caused:
The most common causes for freckles are a) too much exposure to the sun, b) genes, c) hormonal imbalance. Other than these, there could be many more reasons.
Ingredients that Help:
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is the natural bleaching agent that lightens the skin tone and makes it even toned. Lemon juice also helps in decreasing acne spots and blemishes. It also helps oily skinned people to eliminate excess oil from the skin. To use, cut half a lemon and apply directly to clean face. Massage for 7-8 minutes. Leave it on skin for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse.
2. Cucumber Juice
Cucumber juice gives the soothing sensation to skin and helps in rejuvenating the skin firmly. It gives fairer complexion and lightens the spots as well. Cut a cucumber in slices. Apply on the affected area and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse.
3. Sour Cream
The lactic acid found in sour milk can help treat and remove freckles naturally without causing irritation or dryness on the skin. Apply some sour cream to the freckled area and give it a few minutes to dry. Wash it off with water.
Papaya contains papain that can help to lighten and get rid of freckles. Mash a ripe papaya and apply over the affected areas. After it has dried out, rinse it off with water. This remedy helps in lightening and removing freckles, and other kinds of blemishes too.
5. Almond Oil
It is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamins E, B2, B6, PP, minerals and phytosterols. This oil is non-comedogenic which means it will not clog your skin pores or cause breakouts. Almond oil removes freckles and blemishes from skin.
• Warm up sweet almond oil
• Take some oil in a steel or metallic bowl and place this into a larger bowl filled with hot water
• The water level needs to be such that water doesn’t enter the bowl with oil
• Massage your skin with this oil for 10-15 minutes
• Leave it overnight for best results
Homemade Masks For Freckles:
6. Banana & Mint Mask
Banana is rich in vitamins and minerals. Banana has salicylic acid which removes the first layer of the skin firmly which has freckles and blemishes. Whereas mint is the powerhouse of Vitamin A, B, C that help to treat freckles. Mash some mint leaves to get 1 tbsp of paste. Mash the banana and make a smooth paste. Apply this to the affected area. Wash it off after 30 minutes.
7. Honey & Yogurt Mask
Honey has antifungal and antibacterial properties which make honey the best skin care material. Besides, honey can also slow down the aging process. Mix honey & yogurt in equal ratios. Apply this mixture to the affected area. Rinse after 10 minutes.
Precautions to Avoid Freckles, Brown Spots and Blemishes:
8. Use Sunscreen
Some people are born with freckles, but others get it because of the sun exposure. Such freckles appear in summer and disappear in winter. Always apply the good quality sunscreen before going out in the sun, in summers and in winters as well.
9. Avoid Sun during Peak Hours (12 Noon to 4 PM)
10. Take Good Care of Your Skin
Don’t forget to pamper your skin every week to remove the dirt and dead skin cells.
So, these were the tricks for removing freckles and other blemishes naturally. Removing freckles and blemishes naturally is the best way because such natural ingredients do not pose any side effects to the skin, and will not be allergic to most of the people. Lastly, love the way you are, love what you have, and always feel beautiful.
Be beautiful! :-*
