I have a freckle which is light to dark brown in colour, extending from outer corner of both eyes to ear lobule. I have used bleaching agents for couple of month but it's still not fading. Please share your remedy for freckles with me?

Freckles typically occur due to excessive exposure of extremely light and sensitive skin to the sun. The kind of freckle you are describing does not sound like anything that occurs typically due to this reason. It would be better for you to get your skin examined by a qualified dermatologist and first ensure that what you are mentioning here is actually a freckle. Sometimes, such marks can also occur due to some other problem related to the skin. But only a qualified professional will be able to tell you exactly what the problem is. Meanwhile, there are some easy and effective remedies that can be followed at home in order to get rid of freckles. If you are convinced that you have freckles, then you can try them and see if they work on your skin. One of the most effective ways to lighten freckles is to apply aloe vera gel to them. If you can find it fresh, it is always better than a manufactured product that contains preservatives. If you add a few drops of lime or lemon juice to this gel, it will work better and faster. The application can be washed off with water when it starts drying.

If you follow this remedy, do remember that you should always apply a sunscreen after you have tried it out. This will ensure that you do not tan any more and will also ensure that your freckle does not get darker. Both these substances have a tendency to react by darkening your skin if exposed to the sun directly. For the future as well, you must remember to always wear sunscreen before leaving the house, as this will ensure that you are not troubled with such marks on your face again. Make a face pack with equal parts of crushed strawberries, papayas and cucumber. This combination will help to take away the freckles.
