Effective natural remedies for melasma:
- Extract fresh lemon juice and apply it on the affected areas. Gently massage it around for one or two minutes. Leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy twice daily and you should see improvement within three weeks. The acidic nature of lemon juice also helps remove the outer layer of the skin, thereby eliminating a layer of the hyperpigmented skin.
- Take fresh onion juice and mix it with apple cider vinegar in equal quantity. Use a cotton pad to apply this on the affected areas. Regular use of this remedy will effectively reduce the dark spots of melasma.
- All you have to do is mash a papaya and apply its pulp directly on the affected areas. Leave it for at least 20 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Papaya establishes an even skin tone and makes the skin healthier.
