Home Remedies For Dark Skin

Many people have dark skin by nature, but hyperpigmentation could be one among the various reasons that causes dark skin. Melanin, the skin pigment, is responsible for the color of the skin. When melanin is more this skin is also darker. Exposure to sun proves this. A person with fair complexion can develop dark skin due to exposure to sun light, as melanin is produced more to shield the skin against UV rays of the sun. There are certain skin disorders such as Lichen Simplex Chronicus that can leave the skin dark. However, there are home remedies to lighten your skin tone. These remedy measures should be included in your daily schedule, so that best results can be achieved.  


Take ½ tsp of almond oil, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp of milk powder and 1 tsp of milk powder and mix them. Apply this mixture on the face and leave it there for about 15 minutes. You can then wash it off. This makes your skin shinier and removes the tan from your skin. Take some amount of tomato juice, curd and oatmeal and mix them. Apply this on your face. Leave the mixture on your face for about 20 minutes and then use cold water to wash it off. This lightens the skin and also removes the tan. 
Take potato and cut into slices. Place these slices on your face. This can reduce blemishes and other marks on your face. Using lime juice will give a bleaching effect. Or, you can apply turmeric powder together with lime juice on your skin to remove the tan. 
Do not throw out orange peels and have them dried. You can mix these peels with curd and use them for reducing scars and blemishes. Allow this mixture on your face for about 15 minutes and then wash off with cold water. For a glowing skin, you can take the help of almonds too. Have some four almonds soaked in water in night. In the morning of the following day, make a fine paste of these almonds with milk. Apply this paste on your skin in night. Wash it off with cold water only after getting up from bed in the morning. You should follow this for about a fortnight on daily basis, after which you can do it twice a week. 
One more simple home treatment is there for dark skin. You can apply a mixture of gram flour with raw milk and small quantity of lime juice. Let the mixture remain on the skin for about 15 minutes. Wash it off then. Repeat this procedure for four weeks. After this you can do this once a week. This works well for lightening of the skin. 
Take some fresh ground mint leaves and grind them to a paste. Apply this paste on the skin and leave it there for about 20 minutes and then wash it off. You should do this for two weeks on daily basis. You can also make a mixture of grated tomato with few drops of lime juice and apply on your face and leave it for 20 minutes. You can then wash it off. For best results you should do this twice a day for about a fortnight.
