As people grow older, their skin tends to darken due to the effects of the elements. Days spent out in the sun causes the skin to develop freckles and spots, and these discolorations may be very difficult to cover with makeup. This is why many people look for ways of lightening their skin. While this may be impossible to do in one or two days, it is possible to see the results of your skin lightening efforts using natural remedies and creams.
To get the best results with skin lightening remedies, avoid prolonged periods of exposure to the sun. Choose sunscreen products that are non-oily and have at least 30+ SPF. If you need to go out for a long period, cover as much skin as possible with hats and long sleeves.
Choose a natural, plant-based whitening cream from an aesthetic doctor in Singapore. The market is flooded with many brands of whitening creams. However, consider choosing one that has the highest concentration of natural nutrients. In addition, avoid beauty products that contain hydroquinone since it is associated with certain types of cancer. Ask your aesthetic doctor for help in case you are not sure which skin pigmentation product to purchase.
Visiting the dermatologist is one of the best ways of determining what you need to do for your skin. A dermatologist can prescribe the most effective and safest skin-lightening product for you. In addition, you may also book an appointment for skin peel or laser treatment both of which can help lighten your skin.
You can make homemade skin lightening treatments at home out of gram flour, milk, lemon juice, and turmeric. Gram flour is one of the most common ingredients in Indian cooking and is made from ground chana dal. The flour contains high levels of natural skin lightening agents. To make the mask, mix two table spoon full of gram flour with a pinch of turmeric in a mixing bowl. Thoroughly stir the mixture using a whisk or fork. Add two table spoon full of milk and three drops of lemon juice. Stir the mixture thoroughly until it forms a thick paste. Apply the paste directly to all the areas on your body that you wish to lighten. Let the paste sit on your skin for about 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing off thoroughly with warm water.
General Skin Health
Keep your skin looking healthy by drinking lots of water throughout the day. In addition, eat foods rich in omega 3s including leafy vegetables, fruits and grains. In addition, wash your skin at least twice a day with mild soaps. Use a washcloth to rub the soap into the skin and rinse the soap off your skin.
Prolonged exposure to the sun may cause hyperpigmentation, which refers to the development of dark spots on the skin due to increased melanin. Hyperpigmentation may cause the skin to look blotchy. Using natural and safe skin lightening beauty products can help lighten your skin and eliminate hyperpigmentation without the risks of burns associated with some commercial skin lightening products.
