HOW TO TREAT FRECKLES
HOW TO TREAT FRECKLES NATURALLY
What Causes Freckles?
The development of freckles is primarily attributed to exposure to sunlight and a possible genetic predisposition to developing freckles.
Our skin produces melanin on exposure to UV radiation from the sun or tanning lights. This then leads to the over-deposition of melanin in one spot, which causes freckles. Freckles occur mostly in people with blonde or red hair, fair skin, and light-colored eyes.
Note: Freckles do not form without exposure to sunlight. If you observe their appearance on parts of your body that are not exposed to sunlight, it may be a sign of malignant skin cancer. Seek medical help immediately in such cases.
There are several treatment options available to diminish the appearance of freckles, including skin-lightening creams, pigment lasers, and chemical peels. But before going to choose any of the above mentioned treatment you can try some home remedies to lighten and gradually eliminate them naturally.
Do note that the effectiveness of these remedies depends on your skin type and genetics. Also, always do a patch test before applying any of these ingredients to your face.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
The malic acid in ACV exfoliates the darkened skin cells. This helps in lightening freckles.
You Will Need: 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon honey.
Directions: Mix the honey and vinegar, and apply on the freckles. You can also apply this mixture to the entire face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
For best result, apply this once every day on your freckles. If you are applying it on your entire face, repeat every other day.
Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C. Vitamin C exhibits photoprotective and anti-pigmentary properties that help protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. It reduces melanin production to decrease pigmentation on your skin (4).
You Will Need: Juice of a lemon and Cotton pad
Directions: Squeeze a lemon and collect the juice in a bowl. Using a cotton pad, apply the juice on the area with freckles. Leave it on your skin for 15-20 minutes and rinse off. For best result, you can do this two times a week.
Caution: Do not do this remedy if you have sensitive skin as lemon juice may cause redness and irritation. Also, ensure you apply sunscreen before you step out in the sun as lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive.
3. Aloe Vera
The topical application of aloe vera gel triggers the production of metallothionein in the skin, which prevents UV-induced damage (5). It can also inhibit tyrosinase activity. Thus, it may decrease melanin deposition in the skin, leading to lesser freckles.
You Will Need: Fresh aloe vera gel
Directions: Apply some fresh aloe gel on the freckles and massage for 2-3 minutes.
Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off. You can also leave it on overnight. For best result,
do this everyday.
The risk factors of solar lentigines are slightly different from those of the common freckles, and they include:
1. A darker skin tone, which directly translates to a higher capacity of tanning and solar lentigines.
2. History of developing freckles,
3.Exposure to sunlight
and 4. Current intake of oral contraceptive or progestogen treatments.
How To Prevent Freckles?
1. Always wear sunscreen before you step out in the sun. 2. Wear protective clothing like full-sleeved tops and full-length pants.
3. Use wide-brimmed hats or caps.
4. Stay indoors during the peak hours of sunlight.
These simple remedies and prevention tips can help you tackle freckles. If you feel what you have does not fit the description of common freckles, consult your dermatologist and understand the cause of the pigmentation on your skin.
