How can I get rid of dark circles and dark face in natural way or by home made things? Please help

Everyone wants to look beautiful. Unfortunately, some people mistake fairness for beauty. This is because most people perceive a fair complexion to be more attractive. Your genes determine your skin color but your skin care practices and dietary habits determine your complexion. Therefore, it would be better if you concentrate on maintaining the general health of your skin complexion, rather than wanting to become fair.

The color of our skin is decided by the amount of melanin that it contains. Sometimes, the body releases an excessive amount of melanin, to protect itself from the harmful rays of the sun. This process leads to what we commonly know as a sun tan. If your skin has been darkened as a result of over exposure to the sun, a few simple skin care practices will help you get rid of the tan and bring your complexion back to its natural color. The following home remedies will help you achieve a lighter skin tone and a healthy skin complexion, if followed regularly.

  • Avoid going out in the sun for a few days. This will give your skin enough time to reduce and even out your tan. A tan occurs when the skin is over exposed to the sun; therefore, avoiding the sun would reverse the tanning effect to some extent. If you have to go out during the day, make sure you cover yourself well, or apply a sun screen lotion that boasts of a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) value of 30 or higher. If your skin is protected, it will not produce an excessive amount of melanin, thus avoiding hyper pigmentation.
  • In order to get rid of the tan you will have to exfoliate your skin twice a week. For the process of exfoliation, you can make a mixture using freshly squeezed juice from a lemon, a cup of unflavored yogurt and a pinch of turmeric powder. Apply this mixture on the darkened areas of your face. Make sure that the paste is applied evenly throughout. Leave the mixture on your face for around ten minutes. Taking some sugar granules in your palms, rub the mixture off your face gently, using circular motions. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and helps loosen the dead skin cells. Yogurt soothes the skin and reduces the amount of moisture the skin looses, because of the lemon juice. Turmeric powder has antibacterial and antiseptic properties that help keep your skin fresh and clean. The sugar granules serve as a natural exfoliating agent. This process will help you lighten your skin tone by exposing a fresh layer of skin formed beneath the present darkened layer of skin.

For your problem of dark circles, you will need to incorporate at least 8 hours of sleep to your daily schedule. Applying rose water or cucumber juice with the help of a cotton ball topically to your eyes would also prove beneficial in alleviating this condition.
