How to remove dark spots from skin naturally?

by Mystiq Living 31 Mar 2022 0 Comments

Worried about dark spots or scars on your face? Looking for remedies for black marks on the skin? Dark spots on the skin, also known as pigmentation, refer to the discolouring of the skin, which happens when some parts of the skin produce melanin more than usual and as compared to the rest of the face skin. Melanin is a natural skin pigment that is produced by special skin cells called Melanocytes and is responsible for your skin tone. Higher the melanin, the darker the skin colour.

You must have landed on this page because you are searching for the best pigmentation cream to lighten dark spots. You must have also tried numerous home remedies and treatments to lighten dark marks on your skin. But you constantly get more new black marks every day. Check out these tried and tested remedies to fade those stubborn dark spots.


How to get rid of dark spots naturally?

To remove black marks permanently from your face, you need to diagnose what's causing those patches on your skin. Is it tanning or is it due to any digestive disorder? If the reason for the dark patch is any of the following, then it will fade away slowly over time-

  • An acne scar
  • A mark of psoriasis or wound
  • Blemish caused by an allergic reaction to a skin or hair product

You can apply coconut oil to get rid of such scars. Dark spots or pigmentation is different from acne scars and so is the treatment between the two. 


Which home remedy is best to lighten dark spots?

Use any of these time-tested ingredients to treat dark spots naturally and permanently. Readers are advised to pick any of the below-mentioned ingredients according to their skin type and follow it relentlessly for 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Green Coffee scrub
  • Turmeric mixed with gram flour and curd/ milk.
  • Apple cider vinegar and water in 1:1 ratio (apply on dark spots only)
  • Aloe vera gel
  • Buttermilk mixed with lemon juice
  • Pure raw honey mixed with lemon
  • Sandalwood powder/paste combined with orange zest and orange juice/lemon juice
  • Virgin Coconut oil  mixed with a few drops of lemon juice

Which is best face pack for blemish-free skin?

Green coffee is considered the best and most powerful ingredient for clear skin. It also repairs sun damage, tightens pores, and evens skin tone. Green coffee is rich in antioxidants, works on blemishes to reduce pigmentation.

 Do cold-pressed facial oils remove scars?

Cold-pressed facial oils are very effective and highly recommended to remove blemishes from your face. You can include any of these cold-pressed oils in your daily skincare routine to get clean & clear skin. Make sure that the oil you are using is organic and non-toxic to get the maximum results in a short span of time.

  • Rosehip Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Tamanu Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Moroccan Argan Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Wheatgerm Oil

All these oils are equally good to lighten dark spots, but Rosehip Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Wheatgerm Oil are highly recommended.


Other precautions to cure black marks on the skin

  • Use natural or homemade products for skincare. Use gram flour/ rice flour/ oatmeal flour combined with milk/ rosewater/ lemon juice/ orange juice/ curd to cleanse and scrub your skin instead of using a chemical-loaded facewash. 
  • Apply sunscreen before stepping out. Make sure the sunscreen you use is SPF 30 or higher, has broad-spectrum protection, and contains titanium dioxide and/ or zinc oxide as an active ingredient. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat is also recommended.
  • Take a healthy and balanced diet loaded with various nutrients (especially Vitamin C and Vitamin E).
  • Give some time to your patches to fade away. A mark that doesn't lie deep down in your skin may fade away in 6-12 months while others may take a few years to fade away. Be patient.
  • Don't do any experiments on your skin. Some products may harm your skin and health as well. Consult a dermatologist before consuming or applying any medicinal product.


If any of these remedies don't work for you, then you should consider consulting a dermatologist. Your dermatologist may prescribe you laser therapy, chemical peels, cryotherapy, Microdermabrasion, or a skin-lightening cream.

Dark spots are not incurable. They can easily be cured with proper remedies, treatment, and most importantly, patience. Wish you glowing, healthy, and clear skin.
