Pigmentation caused by the sun causes spots on your skin that are known as freckles. Some of these are permanent while others are permanent marks. They are tiny red or brown spots that appear on your face below your eyes, around your cheeks and arms. They are caused by extreme exposure to the sun. Women who are in the pre menopause stage are usually more affected by them. Some men consider freckles extremely attractive.
There are several face packs that can be used to cure and get rid of these spots on your skin.
If you have normal skin and are freckled then there is an extremely simple remedy for you. Soak a few lentils over night in water and grind to a paste in the morning. Mix a few drops of lemon juice and then apply it to your skin. The lentils help to get rid of the spots on your skin. If you have oily skin then the lentil paste must be mixed with yogurt rather than water.
Honey works as natural bleach. Mix a spoon of honey with fresh lime juice. Add a pinch of salt to it and apply it all over the affected area. Wash it off with warm water. Be careful not to let the mixture enter your eyes as it will cause a stinging sensation.
A handful of mint leaves must be ground in a blender with 1 ripe banana. Apply the paste all over the affected area and wash it off when the pack begins to melt on your face. The banana will help to relieve the redness on your skin while the mint leaves takes care of the pigmentation.
Soak a few almonds over night and grind the paste. Mix it with fresh cream and add it to the affected skin. Wash it off after an hour to reveal spotless skin.
