How to Get Rid of Freckles. People with light skin and hair have a greater chance of forming freckles. The brownish colored spots get darker when exposed to summer's sunshine and lighter during the winter. The body produces melanin that reacts to the sun's rays. Freckles eventually go away, if you want to wait until you're forty. If you can't wait, see your dermatologist for the best method to get rid of freckles.
Things You'll Need
- Bleaching cream
- Chemical peel
- Liquid nitrogen
- Sour milk
- Lemon juice
Apply bleaching cream to your freckles. The cream slowly fades the freckles by inhibiting melanin. Follow the application instructions.
See a dermatologist for chemical peels treatment. These peels get rid of freckles by peeling away the skin. Allow several days for skin healing.
Get rid of your freckles through laser treatment. This long lasting technique performed by a dermatologist gives good results, but allow a couple of weeks for your skin to heal.
Freeze your freckles with liquid nitrogen applications. The nitrogen blisters the skin then raises the freckle for removal.
Ask a dermatologist for a cream prescription containing retinoids for treatment.
Consider cosmetic cover-ups available at any cosmetic store. The makeup washes away so the freckles remain after use, but when applied to the skin the freckles disappear.
Make a nightly face wash with sour milk. Your skin peels from the lactic acid.
Rub lemon juice into the freckled area twice each day allowing it to set 10 to 15 minutes until the freckles fade. Wash your face before getting out in the sun.
