I want to remove my face freckles. Kindly Advice.

Freckles are considered to be attractive by some people, but most who do have freckles want to get rid of them. They are small brownish spots that appear on the skin and are the result of excessive and uneven pigmentation generally caused by sun damage. There are various treatments that can be used to get rid of freckles including chemical treatments and natural remedies.

Some of the most commonly used treatments include:

Bleaching agents and creams are commonly used as treatment for freckles, but this method may cause burns and at times even scarring.
Retinol is another treatment used to lighten the freckles and is quite effective as a long term treatment, but it does involve a risk. There is always a possibility of the surrounding skin lightening which actually emphasizes the freckles.

Laser treatments like resurfacing can also be used.

Deep peeling and chemical peels are also employed as treatment for freckles. This treatment however has a long recovery period.

If you do opt for any of the chemical treatments you would also need to avoid exposure to sunlight and use a sunscreen lotion with an SPF level of at least 30. Natural home remedies for freckles are the best form treatment as there are absolutely lesser side effects or risks. There are a number of natural treatments that you can incorporate into your skin care regimen that will help with your freckles:

Use sour milk to rinse your face at least once a day as this will help to minimize darkening of the freckles.

Lemon juice will also make for a good face wash, but make sure you try it in small doses as your skin may be sensitive to it. If the solution is too strong you can dilute it with water. This natural remedy helps to lighten the freckles.

Another excellent home remedy that you can use is sour cream. Use the sour cream as face masque. This too helps to lighten the freckles. Leave it on your skin for at least ten to fifteen minutes and wipe it off with tissue or a soft cloth.

Vitamin C is vital for the health of your skin so make it a point to increase your intake of vitamin C rich foods. Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits and limes are a good source of vitamin C along with other fruits and vegetables like cantaloupe, kiwi fruit, tomatoes, broccoli, sweet red peppers and cabbage.
