Getting Rid of Redness - How to Lighten Your Skin Naturally

Do you have an uneven skin-tone? Perhaps your capillaries are overactive and there are reddish spots on your skin where your circulation can be seen too close to the surface of the skin. Or maybe you're unhappy with your freckles and dark spots that you're gaining with age. Skin tone is constantly varying with time and environmental conditions, it never remains as light as it used to be. The worst skin damager is the sun, although you may love your darker complexion, you ought to think about the consequences of weather-beaten effects on your skin cells. However, there are ways to lighten your skin naturally, seeing as those expensive beauty regenerating creams tend to be filled with unhealthy chemicals and do not show the results they promise. You should always be using sunscreen in your daily routine (even in the winter) because it's the easiest way to keep your skin's youth, most moisturizers can be found with at least SPF 15-30.

Natural exfoliation - do this once a week
  1. 2 tbsp brown sugar (+ 2 tbsp oatmeal if you choose) and mix with 1/4 cup milk
  2. stir until pasty consistency
  3. scrub your face gently
  4. rinse with water
  5. apply moisturizer so your skin doesn't dry out from treatment
Lighten your skin - do this as often as you'd like
  1. take 2 egg whites and an equal amount of freshly squeezed lemon juice and mix together
  2. heat mixture in a pan and put it inside jar
  3. let mixture cool until room temperature and apply to skin
  4. rinse after 15 minutes with water
Another method of lightening - you can do this 3x a day if you want
  1. take 1/2 cup tomato juice and 1/2 cup oatmeal and mix together
  2. place mixture on your skin
  3. rinse off with water after 20 minutes
Drinking lots of water regularly helps maintain your hydration level and make sure you eat many fruits and vegetables in your pursuit of lighter skin. If you wish you can rub your face with lemon juice, milk, or papaya as all of these have natural whitening properties. Be extremely wary of skin lightening treatments you can purchase as many of these are not FDA approved for such usage and increase cell turnover (how fast your skin's cells are killed and replaced) which can lead to detrimental effects such as the pigment going underneath the outermost layer of your skin and possible skin cancer-promoting mechanisms. The chemical whitening solutions that can be found in stores also have a high possibility of causing an allergic reaction on your skin.

  1. Aloe vera is a miracle plant. Massage you face with aloe vera gel for 2-3 minutes and leave it for 15 minutes, then rinse off with cool water. To do that, you will get rid of facial redness and it will make your skin glowing and beautiful.
