Dark spots on the skin are usually a result of hyperpigmentation from inflammation or melasma.
One of the biggest skin problems plaguing us today are dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This can leave the skin appearing uneven and take away the radiance from one’s face. Despite the stress and self-consciousness that this often evokes, you don’t always have to rely on expensive cosmetics and procedures to get blemish-free and luminous skin. Here are some extremely simple home remedies that you can rely on to rid you of the irregularity spots from your face in a completely natural and inexpensive way.
1. Aloe Vera
Applying aloe vera gel on the face every day can be a great way to clear dark spots, especially those caused by acne because of its healing and soothing properties. Instead of using packaged aloe vera gel-based solutions, you can break off a small piece of the spiky-looking plant, slice it open in the middle and gently rub the moist side into your skin in a circular fashion for a natural remedy. Remove the thorns from the leaves beforehand for smoother application.
Pro tip: Leave it on for a few minutes or even overnight and wash off water for a glowing face and reduced scarring.
2. Green tea
Green tea counters inflammation and oxidation, making it great at clearing dark spots, especially those caused by damaging UV rays. Green tea is an extremely versatile product that can be used in different forms for facial applications. One of the simplest ways of applying green tea is by converting brewed green tea into ice cubes and rolling one over your face in the morning.
Pro tip: For a greater green tea concentration, create a face mask by emptying the contents of an infused green tea bag into a bowl and mixing with rice flour and lemon juice or some honey and apply evenly on your skin.
