When I was growing up, I got teased a lot about having a face full offreckles, and
I hated them. They were not those cute little light brown spots peppered like Evangeline
Lily’s, mine were really icky. There are many home remedies on how to fade or get
rid of freckles, and I have tried several of these skin lightening recipes. And,
here are the best ways to lighten freckles naturally.
Home Remedies to Get Rid of Freckles
Lemon, Orange or Lime Juice for Best Freckle Removal
Combine the juice of any one of these citrus fruits with a little plain yogurt, mix
well to get a paste.
Apply on your clean face and leave it on to dry, about 15 minutes. Wash off with
cold water. The juice acts as a natural bleaching agent, and will help lighten freckles
You want to use only real lemon juice. Those fake concentrate that comes in a bottle
or a plastic container shaped like a lemon contain additives and preservatives that
may not be suitable to be used on your face.
Remove Freckles Using Radish
You can fade freckles by rubbing radish on problem areas. Grate 1 radish, and add
the juice of 1 lime. Blend well and apply all over your face.
Leave the mixture to dry and then rub vigorously before rinsing to remove freckles.
Radish and lime not only lightens the freckles naturally but also have exfoliating
properties to remove blackheads.
Mint and Banana to Get Rid of Freckles
Mint leaves are also great for fading freckles without chemicals. Grind 3-4 mint
leaves until you get a paste. Add 1 cut-up banana and blend both ingredients in a
Apply all over your face, avoiding the eye area. With regular use, you should get
rid of freckles and remove blemishes as well.
Lighten Freckles with Eggplant
Eggplant is another effective home remedy that helps fade freckles on your skin.
Slice 1 eggplant, and lay the eggplant slices on your freckles.
Then rub them in a circular motion, and leave the eggplant slices to work for 3-5
minutes. Be sure to use this natural freckle removal treatment everyday and you will
see the freckles fading day by day, and lightened considerably after 2 weeks.
Cranberry or Strawberry for Natural Freckle Treatment
Berries are also helpful in lightening brown freckles. Crush some cranberries or
strawberries, and rub them on the spots.
Let it dry on the face naturally before washing off with cold water. Regular use
makes the freckles lighter and go away quickly.
Get Rid of Freckles with Lemon Juice and Boric Acid
Dissolve 1 teaspoon boric acid in 1 cup hot water. Add juice of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons
rose water and ½ tablespoon glycerin. Mix all ingredients well and store the solution
in a glass jar.
To use, simply dab the solution on your freckles using a cotton ball. Leave it on
for a few minutes, and then rinse off with water.
If you also apply this freckle removal home remedy on your neck and shoulders, you
will notice that your skin becomes radiantly fair and baby smooth.
Sour Cream to Fade Freckles Naturally
Apply a thin layer of sour cream on your face but don’t rinse the face mask off completely.
Instead, gently wipe off with a soft tissue and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Prevent Freckles Formation
As a preventive measure, make sure to use a sunscreen or sunblock of at least SPF
30 on your face. You can also wear a broad-brimmed hat to keep the sun from hitting
the face directly, and avoid sun exposure between 10 am to 4 pm.
Take note that a freckle lighteningrecipe may work on some whereas the same freckle
removal treatment may irritate some people’s skin. So you need to try and see which
home remedyworks best for you, and be patient.
The most common complaint I often hear about home remedies is they take a bit longer
time to show results. If patience is not one of your virtues, you might want to consider
specially formulated fade creams (bleach creams, skin whitening essences, etc) to
help reduce the color of freckles in as little as 14 days, and not to mention, stop
freckles from clustering together.
There are heaps of products around that claim to boost skin renewal and treat uneven
skin pigmentation disorders. But, how do you know what freckle removal products are
safe and right for you, and which ones you must avoid, no matter how appealing the
advertisement might be?
One controversial and dangerous ingredient to watch out for is mercury, a toxic heavy
metal. It can be highly effective against stubborn age spots and freckles because
it blocks the production of melanin, which gives your skin its color. However, mercury
is linked to a slew of damaging side effects, ranging from numbness, tingling in
limbs, dizziness, headaches, memory loss to depression. In excess, it can even cause
As a rule, avoid skin lightening creams that are either white or yellow in color
as it can indicate the presence of mercury. Also, be very careful of unlabeled skin
whitening products from dubious sources, like those manufactured in Mexico and China.
So what are the safe ingredients to look out for when buying fade freckles cream?
Other than Vitamins A, C, E, lemon juice extract, mulberry extract, papain (enzyme
in papaya), glycolic and lactic acid have also been widely used as skin lighteners
to tackle brown patches. In addition, keep an eye for these freckle-removal ingredients
on the product label:
1. Alpha Arbutin. A skin brightener research-proven to have more powerful inhibitory
actions than beta arbutin, commonly known as Bearberry extract, for the treatment
of skin problems such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, chloasma, freckles and age spots.
2. Gigawhite. A plant-derived skin lightener often used as a safer alternative to
hydroquinone. It has been shown to diminish brown pigment spots in a 12 week “in
vivo” study with regular use.
3. Kojic Acid. A non toxic, natural ingredient that comes from Japanese mushroom,
extremely helpful as a skin lightening agent by inhibiting melanin production.
4. Licorice Extract. Glabridin, the main active ingredient present in licorice extract
for skin bleaching, suppresses pigmentation by reducing tyrosinase activation, which
leads to melanin build-up in the skin.
5. Allantonin. Extracted from the comfrey plant, allantonin boosts excellent keratolytic
effects on the skin. What this means is, allantonin gently sloughs off layers of
dead skin cells, to reveal smoother and lighter skin tone while restoring clarity.
