Sun spots, age spots, and freckles are often a result of exposure to the dangerous ultraviolet rays of the sun that cause damage to melanin and lead to short-term or long-term discoloration.
In most cases, they appear on the hands and face, but they can also occur on any body part exposed to the sun. Skin discoloration can also be caused by scars due to surgery or trauma.
Moreover, melasma is a skin- hyper-pigmentation type which occurs in pregnant women, and due to this, it is often referred to as the mask of pregnancy, as the brown spots appear on the cheeks and nose.
However, it can also affect men. Yet, it caused no long-term effects and usually disappears after the pregnancy.
The following natural recipe will be of great help to get rid of stains and spots:
Method of preparation:
You should add a teaspoon of lemon juice to a teaspoon of turmeric powder, mix well and apply this paste to the brown spots. Leave it thus to act for 15 minutes, and then wash it off with cold water.
It is recommended that you apply it before you shower. Repeat this treatment one or two times during the day and you will soon get visible results.
You need to remember that you should not expose the skin to the sun immediately after this treatment.
This recipe is part of the Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of healing. It is extremely effective due to the properties of its ingredients.
Namely, lemon is a natural bleacher and stimulates the skin peeling, provides skin glow, and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Note that in case you have sensitive skin, you should replace lemon with milk, or dilute it.
