Freckles are nasty brown, red or purple colored spots that may have different shapes such as flat, round or square.

Severe skin freckles dark spots

Freckles don’t look very attractive or beautiful at all, they can be covered with foundation and skin base or concealer during makeup but it is really difficult to cover them up with simple moisturizers and creams. It is not feasible to wear makeup all the time so here are five simple face masks which can help you get rid of freckles.

Lemon, Mint and Water

Lemon is a natural bleaching agent that is being used in many beauty products these days. You can use lemon juice as it is, however, it might cause some tingling sensation on sensitive and dry skin. Thus it is recommended that you use it with some other ingredients to reduce the acidity of its content. You can make a juice of lemon with cucumber instead of mint but I recommend mint because it can fights off free radicals on the skin. In a blender mix some mint leaves, water and some lemon juice. Now let it settle down for few minutes. You can put this mixture in fridge for an hour and apply it on skin for thirty minutes. If you feel uncomfortable you can add more water to it. Wash it off with cold water and apply a nice moisturizer afterwards because lemons peels off the skin a little bit.
