  • Unfortunately, all of us have unwanted spots we wish weren't there. There are many types of skin conditions that lead to unbalanced pigmentation, dark clusters, or blemishes. This page highlights three ways to remove these spots from your skin.

  • Freckles
Use lemon juice. It's possible to do a lot more with lemon juice than make drinks. You can use it to sanitize a counter top, brighten white loads of laundry, and, believe it or not, you can even use it to treat freckles.

  • This treatment doesn't remove freckles but it does lighten your skin, and with it, your freckles. It's similar to the way people use it to highlight streaks of hair during the summer.

  • Apply cream or buttermilk. The lactic acids present in sour milk help a lot to get rid of unwanted freckles. Take some sour cream, directly apply it on the affected skin area, and allow it to dry for 10 minutes. Instead of rinsing it off completely with water, you must gently wipe it off wipe it off

  • Another option is to make a thick paste of powdered oatmeal and buttermilk. Apply this paste on the affected area, leave for about half an hour, and wash it off with cold water.

  • Think about laser surgery. If your freckles are seriously getting to you, home remedies may not do the trick. Laser surgery is an option, but it is permanent, expensive, and may not leave you with perfect results.

  • A pulsed-dye laser is the most common method used during this type of laser surgery. In this case, the laser actually emits pulses of a certain wavelength to the site of the freckles, targeting the blood vessels that lie just beneath the surface of the skin. Those blood vessels are then destroyed by the heat emitted from the laser, but the surrounding skin is basically untouched. The laser used for freckle removal is yellow in color, which is known for being safe for use on patients without producing any long-term skin-damaging effects.

  • Sunspots
Try aloe vera and Vitamin E. There are a bunch of home remedies out there that claim they can get rid of spots. They may be able to, but it'll take a long time and the results certainly won't be magical. That being said, there's no harm in trying.

  • Aloe vera gel can bleach the skin to even out skin tone and it has amazing healing abilities. You can get Aloe Vera gel products from the market if you think it’s a hassle to extract it yourself, but taking the effort to extract fresh gel from Aloe Vera leaves is totally worth it. You may want to add castor oil with fresh aloe vera gel to make it more effective. Apply the gel on skin, leave it to dry and wash it off.

  • UV rays cause our body to produce free radicals. They cause a chain reaction which keeps on damaging our skin and it often gets out of control. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that neutralizes these free radicals to protect and repair our skin. Break Vitamin E capsules to get access to the powder inside it. Dab it on sunspots with the help of a cotton dab

  • Invest in a good makeup. Many of the world's largest make-up manufacturers offer products just for this problem. You should be able to go to your nearest shopping center (or drugstore) and pick one up for a not-too-hefty fee.

  • Acne
Wash your face twice a day. As you wander about the world, grease, grime, and dirt build up on your face, leading to breakouts. Cigarette smoke, air pollution, and just general living can wreak havoc on your complexion. Spending 5 minutes washing your face twice a day is an easy way to beat

  • Washing it more won't help, however; that'll just dry out your face (which could lead to breakouts, too). Wash your face in the morning and before bed with a clean washcloth, warm water, and a mild cleanser.

  • Benzoyl peroxide comes in a variety of forms, but most are creams or gels. You apply it to breakouts only - it kills the bacteria that causes inflammation in blocked pores. Be patient, though; results can take up to three weeks. Don't increase your usage! Too much is a bad thing, too.

  • Salicylic acid is an option that will make your skin shed faster. By getting rid of dead skin cells, your pores don't have the ability to build up bacteria and create blockages. It doesn't affect sebum production, but it prevents accumulation on your face.

  • If you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid using this product. And definitely don't put it on any open wounds or sores. That's a recipe for aggravation.

  • Talk to a dermatologist. A professional may be able to pinpoint just what kind of spots you are dealing with. There are many different kinds of skin conditions and yours may may not be what you think.
