Home Remedies for Dark Skin Pigmentation Treatment
- Lemon is a natural bleaching agent which acts to fade the dark blemishes away from your face. Rub the lemon juice on hyperpigmented skin and leave it for a while. After few minutes, wash the face with water. Use this remedy for few months and you will see that the skin is lightening gradually.
- Onion also plays a same role as lemon juice does in treating with the skin pigmentation. The way to use onion on the affected skin all you have to do is to make a slice of red onion and put it on the affected area. Onion helps as an extracting agent because it naturally contains peeling extract that can encourage a cell turnover and reduce damaging of the skin.
