Black spots on the face can be embarrassing and lead to low self-esteem. The bad thing is that in many cases, even the makeup can`t cover them. There are many factors which can cause this skin change, including hormonal imbalances, too much sun exposure, pregnancy, and vitamin deficiency. Luckily, there are many natural home remedies which can help you to get rid of these ugly spots on your face.
Here are some of them:
Lemon is known to have whitening properties due to its high Vitamin C content.
Squeeze one lemon and soak cotton balls in the juice. Then, apply the cotton balls on your black spots and let them stay until the juice is absorbed. Finally, wash your face with water. Repeat the procedure 14 days in a row. The results will be visible in 2 weeks. If you have sensitive type of skin, dilute the lemon juice with honey or rosewater.
The lactic acid found in milk reduces skin pigmentation without causing blemishes.
Mix two teaspoons of fresh tomato juice with four teaspoons of buttermilk. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it for 15 minutes. Then wash your face with water. Repeat the procedure 5 days a week until you see results. If you don`t have butter, you can use a mixture of milk and honey instead. Apply for 10 minutes every day.
Oatmeal powder is a great exfoliator.
Make a paste of 4 tablespoons of lemon juice with half a cap oats. Scrub the paste gently on the black spots once or twice a week. After you`re done with scrubbing, wash your face with water.
Make almond milk.
First you have to soak some almonds in water during the night. The next morning, peel the almonds and grind them in a blender with some water. Then add half a teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon sandalwood powder and apply the mixture on your face. Let it act for 30 minutes and repeat the procedure once in a while.
Loaded with antioxidants
Slice the potatoes and apply them on your face. Let them act for 30 minutes, and the antioxidants will be absorbed. Another option is to grate the potatoes and mix them with honey. Repeat the procedure twice a week and you`ll be amazed by the results.
