by Shaun Damon

With the increasing importance that a person's aesthetic appearance plays in our social life nowadays, it is no wonder that a number of people tend to be over critical about their complexion. The complexion is one of the most identifiable characteristics of a person's overall appearance. As a result, it is no wonder that, upon walking into any cosmetics store anywhere in the world, you would be confronted by a whole stack of fairness creams that promise to make you look fairer in almost unbelievably short timeframes. However, while a fair complexion is something a number of people crave, it is important to understand that not everyone can attain it. If you were born with dark skin, chances are that you are going to remain that no matter what natural treatments you try. In these situations it is always advisable to start getting more comfortable with your skin color and appreciate yourself more. However, if the dark skin is the result of overexposure of the skin to the damaging effects of the suns ultra violet rays or pollution and dust in the air, it is much easier to deal with.

Hyperpgimentation is the most common skin condition that is the result of overexposure of the skin to the ultra violet rays of the sun which are known to cause skin cancer and skin cell augmentation. The coloring agent of the skin, known as melanin, protects the skin from the dangers of this exposure. As a result, when the body senses any excessive exposure to the ultra violet rays, the production of melanin in the body increases and is spread over the more susceptible areas of skin to protect them. This leads to a noticeable darkening of the skin which can significantly impact a person's aesthetic appeal.

Because of the fact that fair skin is so cherished, there are a number of home remedies that have been developed all over the world that could aid in achieving fairer skin. These remedies are known to have had a reasonable success rate all over the world. For example, you could try preparing a mixture of 1 teaspoon of milk powder, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and ½ teaspoon of almond oil. Apply the mixture over your face and parts of the skin that tend to be most exposed to sunlight and wash it off after a period of about 15 to 20 minutes. This skin pack not only helps remove the tan but also brings a noticeable shine to the skin.
