How to get rid of freckles

The process of appearance of freckles (in scientific terms these spots are called ephelids) is as follows: with the arrival of spring the sun becomes more active, in resulting in an enzyme called tyrosine being awakened in the skin. And it in turn activates melanocytes – cells containing melanin. If the pigment is distributed evenly over the skin, the body acquires a beautiful tan, otherwise pigment spots, including freckles, appear in places of melanin cluster.

It is easier to prevent the appearance of freckles than to get rid of these annoying specks, so those prone to pigmentation should take care of protecting their delicate and sensitive skin from exposure to sunlight. For this purpose, sunscreen is applied to the skin. It is also recommended to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses during the spring/summer period.

In the fight against freckles you can use cucumber mask, for preparation of which you need to grate one cucumber on the grater and add 1 tbsp of nourishing cream to the resulting kashitsa. The mixture is applied to the face for 20 minutes, and then washed away. Or you can squeeze juice out of the cucumber and wipe with this juice a problem area.

An effective remedy in the fight against ephelides is dandelion decoction. To prepare it you need to pour a glass of dry crushed roots of this plant with 1 liter of boiling water and continue to cook the resulting mixture over a low heat for 15 minutes, and after insisting 2 hours. After that time, the decoction is strained and rubbed their skin.

To get rid of freckles, a mixture consisting of water, lemon juice and table vinegar can be used (these three components need to be taken in equal amounts). If the skin is too dry, it is recommended to add a little glycerin to the cooked solution.

Getting rid of annoying sunspots will help parsley. It is necessary to grind a bunch of parsley greens, pour it in a liter of boiling water and insist 3 hours. After that, the infusion is strained, cooled and rubbed their skin twice a day.

In addition, it is possible to reduce pigmentation by rubbing the skin with sour milk. If suddenly after that there is a light burning sensation, apply a moisturizer.

All whitening procedures at home are recommended to do in the evening, because it is better not to go to the active sun immediately after them. And, in addition, the regularity of such cosmetic procedures is important, because in some cases the result will be visible only in a few weeks. It is

necessary to pay tribute to vitamin C as well: it helps to lighten the skin, and therefore helps in the fight against “sun kisses”. Therefore, foods rich in vitamin C (oranges, lemons, currants, parsley, etc.) must be present in the diet.
