How To Treat Hyper-Pigmentation At Home Naturally?

If you have Freckles, Pigmentation, Hyperpigmentation, Melasma or any other dark marks on your skin, this is the remedy for you. I do not share any trash information with you. All the remedies that I shared with you have given results for people sooner or later.

Am I a doctor? Not at all. But the remedy that I will be sharing with you will not be shared by any doctor.

In this article, I’ll share with you an amazing remedy that will help you get rid of dark spots and marks. I have tried this for myself and I have had wonderful results. This remedy can fix your skin problems.

However, let me make it very clear, this article is not about changing complexion (I do not promote anything racist).

Let’s get straight into the remedy.

Table of Contents:


1]. Melasma:

  • It is a skin condition in which your external layer of skin is completely clean, but the inner layer of your starts darkening which we call freckles.

  • To cure Melasma, you must take care of both your internal diet and topical application.

2]. Pigmentation and hyper-pigmentation caused by UV:

  • If you go out in the sun and do not take necessary precautions then the discoloration in your skin is called Pigmentation.

  • Not necessarily, sun damage will only happen when sun rays directly fall on your skin.

  • It can also happen if sun radiations fall on your skin.

3]. Pimples:

  • If you have acne-prone skin and you keep getting pimples too often then do not touch them at all. Because for some people, pimples come and get cured on their own, which is fine.

  • But if you touch it, then it leaves a mark and for some people, the mark remains for a lifetime.

3]. Whiteheads, Blackheads and deposition:

  • If there is a deposition on your face and you touch it, it can turn into a mark.

I have a mark on my nose and everybody keeps asking me about it. I don't remember when but I might have popped a pimple because it's a nail mark. And that damaged my skin permanently.

So, do not pop a pimple. Your nails are enemies for your face. So, keep nails away from your face.


Step 1: Exfoliation


  • Rice flour

  • Lemon

The Star Ingredient:

  • Rice flour is the key ingredient of this remedy. So, if you don’t have rice flour at home, prepare it by grinding rice as fine as you can.

  • Rice flour is a blessing for our skin. It can completely transform your skin. It’s a warehouse of anti-oxidants and is anti-inflammatory in nature. That’s why it is used to cure signs of ageing.

  • It naturally moisturizes your skin.


STEP 1: Take 1 big spoonful of rice flour in a bowl.

STEP 2: Add the juice of 1 lemon.

But we shouldn’t apply lemon juice to skin → I’m using lemon juice since childhood and here we’re not applying lemon juice directly on face but using it in a face pack. It will act as a natural bleach.
Our body is understands the food we eat as it goes through blood after digestion. So, our body is familiar with natural ingredients like lemon. But our cells are not familiar with market based bleach and that’s why we shouldn’t think twice and apply this remedy, However, if you still have doubts, DON’T DO IT. Natural remedies shows results only when you believe in them.
If you’ve sensitive skin and you currently have active acne, do not use lemon. Because it can cause more trouble to active acne and sensitive skin. You use rose water instead.

STEP 3: Mix both the ingredients properly.


Apply it with gentle hands, rice flour is made of raw rice so the granules might be hard, so be careful.

Do not push at all, otherwise it might rash your skin.

Apply it with gentle hands in a circular motion. Exfoliate your face a bit and let it be on your face for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, splash water and clean your face. You can even wipe it off, but it will be slightly dry. If wiping use a wet cloth and remove it softly.

You will get the results immediately after the first application but don't be very excited.

STEP 2: Face Mask


If you don't have sandalwood powder, skip it, no problem at all. Sandalwood acts as a catalyst to fasten your curing process for Freckles. But if you do not have it, then do not panic, just skip it.

If you can use milk with this then it would be magical. Your skin will feel slightly stiff after the application of rice flour. Milk will compensate for it. But if you are not comfortable with milk then you can even use rose water.


Step 1: Take 1 tablespoon of rice flour in a bowl.

Step 2: Add 1/2 tablespoon of sandalwood powder.

Step 3: Add milk and mix it well.


Apply all over your face and take a nap for 15-20 minutes. This mask is very relaxing. Sandalwood powder will give a cooling effect.

After this application, you’ll notice that your skin is beautifully reverting back and your discolouration issue has been fixed.

Apply moisturizer immediately after this. If you have dry skin, your skin will feel extremely dry after this. You can use Cetaphil moisturizer which is highly moisturizing.

If you have normal or oily skin, use aloe vera gel after patting your face dry. You are good to go.

What Not To Do?

  • Do not dry it completely. Remove it when it is slightly wet.

  • Be gentle in application and don’t rub.

How Often Can You Do This Remedy?

Do this 2-step remedy once a week. However, if you have severe skin issues, do it twice a week.

You’ve to do this remedy for 1 month. 4 applications in a month is a lengthier process but it is required to get results. Your patience and faith in natural remedies can take your skincare journey to another level.

The positive thing about this remedy is your complexion will become completely clean and your skin will become radiant. Signs of ageing will go far away from you.

Your skin might feel a little dry after using the face pack, but if you moisturise immediately after patting it dry, you won’t feel any stiffness.

Pigmentation, Hyper Pigmentation, Melasma, all of these issues will be subsided. And you'll have a very healthy skin.

The only negative thing is stiffness. But if you moisturize immediately after patting it dry, you won’t feel any stiffness.

Boys, teenagers, children, women everyone can use this remedy.
