What is stopping you from a glowing complexion? Here’s how you can deal with common skin problems using natural beauty products at home.
If you suffer from annoying dark spots on the face, blame it on hyperpigmentation. Here’s the sad news: women of color are more prone to hyperpigmentation which is triggered by many factors, from sun exposure, to hormones and acne. The safest way to get rid of it is to try a home remedy, order from a company that provides products that are formulated specifically for your skin or visit the dermatologist if the condition is severe.
Here are a few home remedies you can try:
Want to keep your beautiful dark skin hydrated in the spring and free from spots and blemishes in the spring? Cucumber juice is an effective remedy for treating skin pigmentation. Apply the juice alone or mix it with lemon juice and honey in equal proportions. Apply the mixture in affected areas and allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes, regularly once a day and then wash it off.
Potatoes are an effective solution for dark circles, melasma and other skin pigmentation problems. With continuous application, potatoes can lighten the affected areas. Simply peel a potato and rub freshly cut slices on the affected areas of your skin every day.
Most women are prone to suffer from acne as the temperature starts to rise in the spring. Contrary to popular belief, oily skin is not the only cause of acne. In fact, almost anybody can suffer from the condition. Keep your skin clear by cleansing, toning and moisturizing every day. While dirt cannot cause acne, bacteria can accumulate inside the skin and lead to common skin problems. In addition, stripping the skin of moisture can also aggravate a number of skin conditions.
Be watchful while selecting acne products for dark skin as by selecting the wrong cream, you may end up bleaching parts of your skin resulting in an utterly unattractive appearance. If you suffer from severe acne, head over to a dermatologist who has experience in treating African American skin.
