You have a party to attend this evening. Even after having applied a few layers of foundation, you can still see your dark spots. Don’t you just hate it when that happens? Trust me, until a few weeks ago, I was sailing in the same boat. But, after having found these remedies for dark spots, I can happily say that my face is spot-free now.
Dark spots are also known as age spots or black spots. They are discolored patches of skin that can appear on your face, shoulders, arms, or back and can be in shades of red, brown, or grey. These spots appear due to the oversecretion of melanin – the pigment responsible for the color of our skin. Though these spots may vary in shade and size, there is one thing they all have in common – they are a great source of distress for anyone afflicted by them.
* Lemon Juice
Lemon juice, by itself, is a great way to remove dark spots. However, in its concentrated form, it can be pretty harsh on your skin. So, using water to dilute the solution is a good idea, especially if you have sensitive skin.
* Vitamin E Oil
Apply a few drops of vitamin E oil directly on the dark spots and rub it into your skin with clean fingers.
Slice up a potato into thin slices with a knife.Apply a tiny bit of water to the potato slices to make them wet and place them on the areas with dark spots.Leave the potato slices on for 10 minutes.
Buttermilk is the sour liquid left behind after butter has been churned out of the milk. Remember when I told you at the beginning of this article that a superficial chemical peel uses alpha hydroxyl acids? Basically, the lactic acid found in buttermilk is also a type of alpha hydroxyl acid. It helps remove dead skin cells from your face and lightens dark spots.
* Aloe Vera
Using a knife, slice away the outer layers of an aloe vera leaf.Squeeze the gel onto your fingers and apply it directly to your dark spots. Leave the gel on for 20 minutes, then wash off with clean water.
