Potatoes are known to work quite well on pigmented areas and blemishes. You would need 1 raw potato and some water. Cut potato into slices and dip into the water. Rub the potato slice on the pigmentation area in a circular motion for about 10 minutes. Wash off your face with lukewarm water. Repeat this process twice or thrice in a week for better results.
Yogurt has lactic acid which helps in peeling the dead cells from the skin. To reduce the pigmentation spots, you would require one tablespoon fresh yogurt. Apply the yogurt on the pigmentation areas and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse off your face with some water.
3. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil helps refill the dead skin cells and also protects it from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Firstly, wash your face to remove any extreme dirt. Use the coconut oil to your face and massage it well so that it penetrates deep down the skin's layers. Once you're done with the massaging, leave the oil on your skin for about 20-25 minutes so that the extra oil gets absorbed. Wash your face and repeat this method twice in a week.
Papaya has superb exfoliating properties. It helps in removing the dead skin cells and promotes the growth of new cells by curing hyperpigmentation. To make a papaya face-pack for yourself, you would need 3 tablespoons of papaya extract, milk and organic honey. Take a bowl and add these ingredients. Mix well until they are well blended. Apply this mixture on your face and allow it to stay for about 20 minutes. Rinse off using cold water.
Sandalwood is good for your skin as it helps lighten the pigmentation spots to a great extent. To use sandalwood paste for your skin, you would need some sandalwood and rose water. Take a bowl, add both of these ingredients and mix well. Apply this paste on your entire face and leave for about 20-25 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water in the end.
