Natural Treatment for Freckles

Did you know that the best treatment for freckles can be found right in your kitchen?

Make your own simple, quick and easy natural skin care remedies will fade freckles for just pennies. The trick is to be patient because it will (and does) take time.

For many, that vast collection of ephelides, otherwise known as freckles, can blossom on skin when consistently exposed to the sun, is a source of frustration.

The more exposure to the sun, the more freckles are apt to appear.

And did you know that over time, freckles can darken?  Especially on the parts of the skin, like your face, that is consistently exposed to the sun.

So what is a good treatment for freckles?

Why a natural "Freckles Facial" of course!

There is a bounty of natural skin care remedies that will help to fade your freckles. Depending on what is in your pantry and refrigerator, select what is on hand and get started on making your own natural treatment for all those pesky freckles.

Feckles Facial

Simply adapt any natural skin care recipe using one or two of these ingredients: (Or just dab a little of the juice directly on the freckled area to help them fade. . .)

  • Citrus juice from an orange, lemon or lime, cucumber juice, and (believe it or not) onion all have natural bleaching properties.

  • Cucumber juice has natural conditioning and bleaching attributes.

  • Yogurt (along with other dairy products such as buttermilk, sour cream and milk) is a natural lactic acid which will gently exfoliate the skin to diminish freckles.

  • Some other natural ingredients known for their bleaching qualities include cranberries, strawberries, pineapple, pumpkin and papaya.

When a natural skin care remedy or your own homemade facial treatment for freckles just isn't enough other options include:

  • Hydroquinone or kojic acid are over-the-counter bleaching creams. A prescription is needed for hydroquinone at concentrations over 2%.

  • Tretinoin, otherwise known as vitamin A, retin-a or retinol, is frequently used in conjunction with bleaching creams for a more intensive freckle treatment.

  • A Dermatologist or other certified professional can perform a rather simple procedure called Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen to lightly freeze freckles.

  • Laser facial treatments have come a long way in the past decade. They are less invasive, safe, and quite effective as they are specifically designed to target variety of skin conditions; including freckles!
