People search for beauty perfection and pigmentation spots are not allowed in this picture. The appearance of brown spots on the face, neck or arms, is something unpleasant, especially for women, because they often can’t be concealed even by makeup.
Pigmentation spots are the result of several factors, such as hormonal imbalance, excessive sun exposure, vitamin deficiency, pregnancy. Fortunately, there are many remedies. Here are some natural remedies for pigmentation spots:
1. Lemon juice
Squeeze a lemon and dip some cotton disks in its juice. Apply them to the problem area and leave them act for 10 minutes. Rinse with water. Repeat this treatment 14 days in a row. For sensitive skin, dilute the lemon juice with honey or rosewater.
Potatoes are rich in antioxidants, being suitable for pigmentation spots. Apply potato slices directly on the stain and let them act for 30 minutes. You can also scrape a potato and mix it with lemon. Apply the mixture twice a week.
Oatmeal powder can exfoliate the skin. Mix 4 tablespoons of lemon juice with oatmeal until you create a paste. Apply the paste with a gently massage, let it act 10 minutes then rinse with water. Repeat this treatment once or twice a week.
Whey is another beneficial ingredient. Lactic acid reduces skin pigmentation. Mix 4 tablespoons of buttermilk with 2 teaspoons of fresh tomato juice. Apply this mixture on your face and let it act for 15 minutes. Rinse with water. Repeat this process 5 times a week, until the results are visible.
If you don’t have buttermilk, use fresh milk and honey and let the mixture act 10 minutes. Repeat the process daily.
5. Almond milk
To prepare the almond milk, leave almonds soak overnight. Peel them the next day and mix them in a blender with some water. Add half a teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of sandalwood. Apply the mixture on the spots and let it act 30 minutes. Repeat this treatment every now and then.
