How do I remove dark spots on my face?

No matter how much you look after your skin, you may still encounter a stubborn dark spot on your face from time to time.

Dark spots are created by an excess of melanin production in certain parts of the skin.

This can increase if your skin is exposed to the sunlight for long hours.

So, while we’re all at home we can undo all that we’ve done in the past few months and with minimum exposure to the sun, we can get a little step closer to our goal – clear skin from dark spots. 


Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is one of the most effective ingredients when it comes to tackling dark spots. Its natural properties help in depigmentation and in turn helps in getting clear skin.

How To: Just grab an Aloe leaf and scrape off the gel with a fork. Once done, take the same fork and whisk it in a bowl. Apply it on your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. You can use this remedy daily for great results.


Lemon is known to have natural bleaching properties. It is rich in antioxidants which directly targets the affected areas and brightens the skin tone.

How to: Mix a teaspoon of lemon with a teaspoon of honey. Lemon is acidic and might affect the skin which is why mixing it with a natural moisturiser like honey helps in soothing it’s effects. Apply the mixture to the skin and rinse it off in 15 minutes. You will find good results when you apply this daily.


Turmeric is another antioxidant that reverses the melanin effects in the skin. It also contains curcumin which brightens the skin tone. 

How to: Mix a pinch of Turmeric with a spoon of yoghurt. Apply on the affected areas and leave for 15 minutes. Once dry, rinse it with cold water. 

These remedies are great to use with ingredients available right in the kitchen.
