10 Ways to Get Rid of Freckles

Freckles are known for effecting mostly the facial skin, arms and shoulder area. Beauty conscious women are always contemplating ways to get rid of those freckles.

Below, I am going to tell you about some solutions that may work for you. Take note that each one of these solutions has worked on someone I know. I do not know if they will work as effectively on your skin as everyone is different, but they are well worth the try…

10. Juice Mix

Natural parsley juice that has been mixed up with an equal amount of red currant juice, orange juice and lemon juice under your favorite skin cream will help those freckles disappear. This is a technique that my friend personally used and she told me that it worked in as little as two weeks.

9. Bleaching Creams

If nothing works for you, then you could always try out those bleaching creams. Many individuals who were tired of having wrinkles chose these bleaching creams. Bleaching agents will attempt to fade the color of the surrounding skin. However, I have seen some cases where it can darken the skin surrounding the freckles, which calls even more attention around those spots. So, use this cream at your own risk and study up on it. Make sure it is your last resort.

8. Less Sun

Having too much sun exposure is no good as it does more harm to your skin than it does good. Sure, it can help you get that tan, but do you know what it is doing to your skin at the same time? It is changing certain cells into dangerous skin cancers. Those actions can also cause both age spots

and freckles. This is why I highly recommend you avoiding too much sun exposure.

7. IPL Treatments

Practitioners have come up with IPL treatments for new patients. On average, they recommend four to six treatments done at three week intervals. Each one of the sessions will last about twenty minutes. IPL treatments are going to gradually make your freckles invisible.

6. Laser Removal

Laser removal is another method that many have turned to. Before you go under laser treatment, you need to make sure you go to a board certified dermatologist to make sure those freckles are not skin cancer. Once they have determined that they are merely freckles, you can go to a laser surgeon in order to remove them.

5. Retinoids

There are prescription strength retinoids that can be used for the removal of those pesky freckles.

4. Lemon Juice

Simply putting lemon juice on the freckles can help you out. You do not have to rub your skin with a piece of lemon, all you have to do is dab a small amount on your skin.

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great way to treat those freckles. Vitamin C will make your skin less sensitive to the sun. Eating foods and drinking liquids that are high in Vitamin C is definitely encouraged.

2. Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery is a popular procedure that involves lightly freezing the freckles with liquid nitrogen.

1. Keep’m

Just leave them there. Yes, I just implied for you to leave them there and be happy with your skin. Girls, many guys find freckles rather sexy. I personally have some freckles on my face and guys love them. I think they are absolutely cute.

So, if you are not able to get rid of those freckles through any of the tips I gave you, then don’t dread on them because they are not as bad as you may think they are.

Do you know about other ways to get rid of freckles or make them less visible? Do tell!
