Freckles are light brown pigmentation spots on your skin usually caused due to over-exposure to the Sun.

If you have freckles and want to get rid of them, here are some home remedies that will help to get rid of freckles on the face within no time:

Turmeric

A pinch of turmeric can do various things for your health. It contains a curcumin compound that inhibits melanogenesis.

Melanogenesis means it reduces the excessive deposition of melanin in the skin that causes freckles.

You can combine turmeric with other resources to get fast results.

Mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder with 1-2 teaspoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.

Mix these until it forms a paste. Leave this on for 20 minutes.

Rinse your face with lukewarm water, and don’t forget to apply moisturizer.

Almond oil

Almond oil is an essential and excellent oil for the skin. It is rich in vitamin A and vitamin E that nourish the skin and reduce pigmentations.

Almond oil works as a tonic for your skin that softens and brightens your skin. Take 2-3 drops of almond oil and apply it on the affected part with the help of fingers.

Leave for about 1 hour or until the skin fully absorbs the oil and rinse it with lukewarm water. You can also keep the oil overnight on your face.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera contains aloesin that works effectively to reduce skin pigmentation.

You can use aloe vera straight from the plant or can purchase aloe vera gel from the market.

It stimulates the production of metallothionein in the skin that can prevent damage by sunlight.

Massage your face with aloe vera gel for 5 minutes daily to get rid of freckles.

Wash off with lukewarm water after leaving it for 10 minutes.

Buttermilk

Buttermilk is yet another kitchen regular that aids in reducing freckles. It also leaves our skin supple and hydrated.

To use buttermilk for your freckles, make a thick paste out of it by using oatmeal.

Mix these two ingredients and apply them to your face and leave for 15 minutes.

Rinse with lukewarm water. Apply this pack twice a week for faster results.

Mint and Bananas

Mint is rich in antioxidants which help aid in reducing freckles. Plus, the nutrients present in bananas help the skin hydrated.

To make this face pack, you would require mint puree which you can make using a mixer, now add mashed bananas.

Mix both ingredients well and apply them to your face. Leave it for 8-12 minutes. Repeat this remedy thrice a week for better results.

Five Common skincare mistakes to avoid

24th November 2021
"Skincare should be according to skin type and the seasons"

Skincare is a tricky business. Common skincare mistakes can aggravate such problems as suntan, sunburn, dark patches, blackheads, pimples, acne, rash, dryness, or skin sensitivity. Skincare should be according to skin type and the seasons.

Here are a few mistakes you might have been making when it comes to skincare which is preventing you from getting that smooth and glossy skin you want.

Not wearing sunscreen daily:

The sun is your skin’s biggest enemy; it speeds up the aging process by contributing to fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dark spots, and even skin cancer.

That’s why applying sunscreen is an essential step in your skincare routine – regardless of your age – to prevent sun damage and keep your skin healthy and radiant for as long as possible.

Pimple popping:

Squeezing pimples and blackheads can allow dirt and bacteria to get into the skin and make matters even worse.

Besides increasing the odds of infection, popping your pimples can lead to permanent scarring. Scarring becomes an issue to deal with.

And scarring isn't something that goes away overnight.

Over exfoliating:

While exfoliation is a great way to remove the build-up of dead skin cells for smoother, brighter skin, over-exfoliation can be super damaging to the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Avoid exfoliating scrubs with harsh particles that can tear and damage the skin.

Using too many products:

It’s important to understand how much of each skincare product you should use to get the most benefit without wasting it or irritating your skin unnecessarily.

Your skin could be oily and quite sticky because your skincare is just sitting on the surface, but overloading your skin can also result in dryness, irritation, and redness.

Just a handful of products and ingredients will do for most people with 'normal' to combination skin.

Touching your face too often:

Most people touch their face countless times per day; it’s a natural habit and also a common skincare mistake to avoid.

The hands carry germs and bacteria, conveying them to facial skin and leading to eruptive skin problems.

If there is acne, it can get aggravated if you keep touching your face.

Skincare myths you wish you knew it before

5th January 2022
"The fact is that a lot of skincare advice just doesn’t work, and some skincare myths can even cause harm."

Everyone wants a clear, radiant complexion. But getting there might depend more on your ability to recognize fact from fiction than how much you follow a cleansing regimen or how much you spend on products. The fact is that a lot of skincare advice just doesn’t work, and some skincare myths can even cause harm.

Let’s have a look behind common skincare myths you should stop believing:

Drinking water keeps your skin hydrated

There is no evidence that drinking more or less water is helpful or harmful to your skin.

While drinking more water can be beneficial for other health conditions, water does not automatically get absorbed by your skin when you drink it.

It hydrates our cells as it is absorbed by the bloodstream and filtered by the kidneys, which does help hydrate our bodies overall.

The best way to keep your skin hydrated is to avoid dry air (or use a humidifier), use a gentle cleanser, and use a moisturizer daily or ingredients that help keep moisture locked in your skin barrier, like hyaluronic acid

Not washing your face causes acne

Hygiene doesn't play a role in the development of acne.

Acne involves oil production, bacteria, clogged pores, and inflammation, with hormones and stress playing a significant role and diet for some people.

Not washing your face doesn't help your situation but it certainly doesn't cause acne.

You Don’t Need Sunscreen If It’s Not Sunny Outside

While we know that SPF isn’t only a necessity for long days hanging out in the sun, it turns out that broad-spectrum SPF is even necessary when the skies are gray.

You can get burned even on cloudy days. Spending time out in the suntans protection can lead to damage over time and can show up down the road as visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dark spots.

So yes, you need to wear sunscreen year-round no matter your skin tone.

You Don’t Need Moisturizer If You Have Oily Skin

No matter what your skin type—oily and acne-prone or dry and dehydrated—you need to be using some kind of moisturizer to keep your skin balanced and nourished.

The differences lie in the type and amount of moisturizer your skin needs.

While oily skin requires the least amount of moisture, a moisturizer is still vital for nourishing and hydrating the skin.

There’s No Such Thing as Over-Exfoliating

Yes, exfoliating does have its benefits, including helping to slough away dead skin cells—which could be responsible for your dull-looking complexion—that have built up on your skin’s surface over time.

But you can overdo it and irritate your skin. The answer to how many times a week you should exfoliate varies from person to person.

Some can handle daily exfoliation, while others may only need to do it once or twice a week.
