Dark Skin

It is the wish of most people to have a whiter skin. Although this may look simple on paper, the means to attain it is no easy at all. Today, treatments can cause a lot of money through surgical means and other processes that involve a lot of technical competence.

Dark Skin Causes

There are many reasons why a person can have dark skin, although of course genetics is the main reason for it. This is because the body produces a skin pigment known as melanin. When a person has a greater amount of melanin on their body, the result is a dark skin pigment.

Also, exposure to direct sunlight can also cause one’s skin to darken. This situation is even more pronounced when a person is exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun, especially if the skin is unprotected. Other factors that can cause one’s skin to become darker is dehydration or lack of fluid intake. This stems from the fact that when a person gets little fluid, the skin may become wrinkled, making it appear darker.

Remedies for Dark Skin

Because of the more sophisticated means of treating medical and health problems nowadays, treatments have become more expensive.

Proof of this is the proliferation of clinics and individuals who specialize in treating dark skin. However, these forms of treatment are often beyond one’s means.

The following are some of the cost-efficient yet equally effective means of treating dark skin and to get fair skin:

  • Get plenty of water. This will help keep your skin glowing and radiant, countering the wrinkling effect of dehydration and old age.
  • Wear comfortable clothes that allow for a proper aeration of the affected part. Cotton is one example of comfortable clothing.
  • Ground fresh mint leaves until it becomes sticky and apply over the affected part.
  • When bathing in a tub, add 1 cup of fresh lemon juice to the water and soak in it.
  • Get a few slices of tomato and put in your tub for your bath.
  • Rub the dark spot with fresh slices of lemon for about 10 minutes at least 3 times a day.
  • Obtain fresh cucumber juice to cleanse the dark spot regularly.
  • For those who have access to aloe vera plants, obtain the juice from the leaves and use it to clean the dark spot.

    Drink a lot of water. Each time you return from an outing, clean your face with lemon juice. Soak some lentil in raw milk for half an hour, grind and make fine paste. Take equal amount of potato, tomato, cucumber, raw turmeric and carrot. Then grind it to fine paste. Mix it up with the lentil paste. Apply on your face for 15 minutes daily morning and afternoon. See the result after 30 days.

      First of all you should consult a good skin specialist to confirm if the white spots are that of vitiligo. Vitiligo is a skin disorder which occurs when the skin color pigments are destroyed. This patch of skin turns white. It is considered to be an autoimmune disease. Though it is difficult to cure completely, there are few good homeopathic medicines which are known to bring relief to the patient. Natrum carb, sepia, phosphorus, silica are some of them. However the proper remedy is chosen by the homeopath you consult.

    My skin is actually fair, but my face and my arms due to sun exposure have become tanned. Also my face and arms have become very sensitive to sun exposure even if I stand in the sun for 10 minutes. I would get a horrible tan even though I apply lots of sun block. I really hate this and I want my face and arms to be fair again. Except lemon, it dries my skin and it makes my skin more sensitive.
