Freckles – for some pride for some unsightly marks they want to get rid of. If you belong to the second group here are a few, reliable tips how ‘bleach’ them.

First of all, we need to know what freckles are in order to fight with them effectively.

Freckles in some cases is down to hereditary. If parents have a light skin and dark hair, the baby is prone to have brown dots. The rest of the population with freckles can put the blame on sun. The sun reacts with melanin in their skin creating dark dots. They can be hidden with the use foundation or a BB cream but most of the people with freckles would like to permanently minimalize their appearance.

The Most efficient way of fading dark dots is lemon juice. Just like lemon juice works on apples to prevent them from browning, it will react and inhibit melanin from forming in your skin. Before applying the make-up, take a cotton bud, soak it a fresh lemon juice, wipe it all over your face, and let it sit for about 10 min. Then rinse it away with a warm water and apply a gentle moisturizing with the high SPF. If you do it every day, you will see that your freckles will go away in no time.

Another great earth plant that can make your spots look smaller is cucumber. Alike lemon, it has a strong whitening properties. It gently ‘bleaches’ any skin discolorations. This vegetable works magic as it soothes it and deep hydrate it. You can either slice a cucumber or put it on the face or you can smash it in a bowl and apply the mask on the skin.

The last, natural remedy is a parsley. Chop the bunch of fresh parsley leaves and add them to the boiling water. Turn the heat off and let the mixture cool down. Wipe your face once a day with this Parsley juice. It has a strong whitening effect and it can get rid of acne.

If none of those tips seem to help, do not worry as freckles tend to fade as people get older.
