Home Remedies For Lightening Body Parts

Thanks to our highly stressful lifestyles, we get little sleep, few healthy and balanced meals and even less time to relax. We travel constantly and are exposed to the ravages of the sun, dust and dirt. To help with our constant aches, pains and illnesses we quaff all sorts of supplementary vitamins and medicines in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Very few people take the time to live a healthy life with balanced diet and exercise. So ultimately, our skin shows the results: pimples, acne, dark spots, liver spots and other blemishes. You can go to an expensive dermatologist and get a cure, or you can radically alter your lifestyle. If neither is possible, you may want to consider some home remedies given below:

A Late Night Out or At Work

Lack of sleep and stress usually result in eye bags and dark circles under the eyes. You can go to a doctor for dark eye circle treatment Singapore and tighten the skin with laser or use lightening creams full of chemicals as a cure.

Or you can use a homemade dark circle eye treatment. Simply take a potato and cut two slices of about half an inch wide. Do not peel the potato before. Refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes and lay them over your eyes for 20 minutes. You can also squeeze the juice out of the potato and apply it under your eye. The iron and calcium in it will nourish your skin and help rejuvenate it while the acids in it will whiten the skin in a natural way.

Sweaty Underarms

One of the more embarrassing features of our bodies, some people have dark underarms thanks to excessive sweating and/or other reasons. Shaving with old razors can also cause dark underarms in which case the solution is to exfoliate every few days and either shave with new razors all the time or wax. But for those who sweat a lot, do not run to a pharmacy for an antiperspirant as they have chemicals that are harmful to your sweat glands. Instead, mix 3 parts of baking soda with one part water and apply the paste to the darkened area under the arm. Baking soda is a natural lightener and the results will show in 2-3 weeks. You can also use lemon juice instead of water, or simply rub a slice of lemon under your arm. Read this article to find out more about aesthetic clinic that can help you in skin treatment.

Darkened Groin

This is a sensitive issue as people are very uncomfortable talking about darkened areas around their groin and genitalia. This is again a result of sweat and tight clothing; some fabrics bleed colour and dark underpants may have transferred the colour onto your skin (there’s a reason why cotton undergarments remain on the market). Firstly, try exfoliating with a loofa or some mild scrub you can find in the shop. Do not use baking soda or lemon juice, as they are too harsh. If exfoliation doesn’t work, either apply cucumber juice (freshly squeezed) or aloe vera gel (taken fresh from a stem) and leave on for 20 minutes before washing away with lukewarm water. Do this consistently for 2-3 weeks and results should start to appear.
