We all have our insecurities, and one of the most common is feeling like we need to cover up or hide facial imperfections. For those of us with freckles, this can be a constant battle. But with a little patience and some careful planning, you can learn some tricks for an evening out your skin tone and banishing those dots for good!
This post is all about how to use natural ingredients to get clear skin that’s smooth, radiant, and free from discoloration.
Freckle is the small, light brown, or tan patches on the skin that are slightly larger than birthmarks and smaller than freckles. They are typically caused by pigment production exceeding the melanosome transfer rate (transfers between melanosomes).
Although freckles tend to occur in all races of people, they are more common in people with light skin and dark hair. Daniela Bleasdale is one British woman whose freckles were so severe that she was told to undertake extensive laser treatment to remove them. Although she had them removed by a laser, they returned. She now uses a homeopathic skincare product she mixes in with her skincare regime called Whitening Skin Mask that helped reverse the change and results show serious improvement within two to four weeks. It’s created by mixing honey, almond oil, elm oil, and wheat germ with the plant extract lactic acid, glycolic acid, citrus Aurantium, and licorice root. Helpful ingredients include:
Honey – Honey is a natural humectant that draws moisture to the skin. When it is combined with other ingredients in the Whitening Skin Mask, the product works more efficiently.
Almond Oil – An almond oil is extracted from bitter almonds (the type of almonds eaten as candy). Almonds are rich in vitamin E, minerals, and oleic acid. The oil is light, easily absorbed into the skin, and moisturizes without clogging pores.
Elm Oil – Elm tree bark contains up to 30% of natural moisturizer elm wax which helps protect and keep your skin soft.
