There are several people who are not even aware of the fact that their skin, is actually the largest organ of the body. This is perhaps why it is also the most susceptible to illness and developing conditions. One of the most common problem that skin faces are dark spots, blemishes or pigmentation. There are simple tips to remove skin marks by home remedies. The reasons for skin marks or spot could be really varied, but some of the most common ones include:
However, there are simple tips and tricks that you can do at home, which should help with most of the problems. The ingredients required for these packs and peels are things you will find in your kitchen cupboard or inclusion of some simple items in your regular routine, could make all the difference.
Water – If you want glowing skin that is clear and smooth, one of the easiest things for you to do is drink a lot of water. Ideally, you should drink about eight glasses of water each day, because the water will help flush away the toxins in the body and help maintain the natural hydration levels. If you have enough water in your body, the dark spots should start to fade away on their own.
Protect yourself again the sun – One of the biggest reasons for dark spots and blemishes is penetration of ultraviolet rays into the skin. As a matter of fact, too much exposure to sunlight could be the reason why you might develop a more serious skin condition known as melasma. This is why, no matter what the weather is outside, you need to make sure that you wear an SPF cream and wear clothing that will protect your skin.
Lemon juice – Lemon juice is nature’s bleaching agent, and because of the citric acid present in it, lemons are able to help clear skin of dark spots or blemishes quite easily. In addition, it can also help lighten skin tone, but if you have sensitive skin, make sure that you use lemon juice in a diluted form.
Aloe vera – Aloe vera has been recognised as a wonder plant, and while it can help with burns and stings, it can also help reduce brown spots. In addition, aloe also acts as a natural hydrating mechanism for the skin.
Yoghurt – Yoghurt as well as buttermilk have lactic acid, which is a great ingredient for your skin. While both these items should be consumed on a regular basis, if not daily, they can also be used for application on the skin.
Onions and potatoes – Potatoes and onions are normally always available in the kitchen and both these vegetables can help with dark spots and skin discoloration.
Sandalwood – Sandalwood has long been used as a perfume, but it is also a wonderful antiseptic and anti-aging agent. You can apply natural sandalwood paste to your dark spots or you can use it in homemade face packs and masks.
Papaya – The enzymes that are contained in papayas can help with the reduction and removal of dark spots. All you have to do is grate some raw papaya and then apply the same to the affected areas. After about 20 minutes, you can wash the papaya off with warm water.
Apple cider vinegar – You might have been using apple cider vinegar to dress your salads, but you might not have known that the same vinegar can be used to treat dark spots and blemishes.
