Natural remedies for discolored skin
Lemon contains citric acid that helps bleach the skin, making it a popular home treatment for hyperpigmentation. This natural bleaching agent can effectively fade dark blemishes on your skin.
- Extract fresh lemon juice and rub it on the skin using a cotton ball. Leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash it off with water. Follow this remedy twice daily for a few months until you notice improvement.
- Alternatively, you can prepare a facial mask with equal amounts of lemon juice and raw honey. Mix the ingredients well and then apply it to the affected skin. Cover the skin with a warm towel for 15 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Do this once a week for a few months.
Note: Those who have sensitive skin must dilute the lemon juice with a little water before using it.
#2 Orange peel powder:
- Orange is loaded with Vitamin C (great for skin) and antioxidants, so if you don’t have the patience to dry and grind orange peels, run to your nearest organic store and get yourself a pack of orange peel powder.
- Mix this with yoghurt or honey or lemon every week and use as a face pack to get rid of stubborn dark patches on skin.
#3. Raw Potato
Raw potato works very well to help lighten hyperpigmented skin as well as other spots and blemishes on the skin.
Potatoes contain catecholase, an enzyme that is believed to help lighten skin tone.
