Several men and women alike are plagued with facial black spots also known as dark spots. Although temporary make up can cover these up, how exactly do you get rid of them? The main reason for dark spots is increased melanin production by skin, increased sun exposure, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiency, sleep deprivation and even medication.
However there is no need to worry as there are several remedies for facial black spots. While acid peels and laser surgeries can get rid of them, here are the best known remedies to get rid of facial dark spots.
1 Lemon juice
This is an age old remedy where lemon juice is also good for dark spots as well as acne in acting as an astringent for the face. Vitamin C in lemon juice besides being an antioxidant promotes skin rejuvenation and reduces spotting. Rub lemon juice on your face with a cotton swab and rinse after five to 10 minutes. Use this remedy for two weeks. If at all the lemon juice proves too strong, you can dilute it with some filter water.
2 Milk serum
Yoghurt is another known remedy for dark spots. If Lemon juice causes a burning sensation, you can use yoghurt which is gentle on skin and removes black spots. Here’s how to use it.
