Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
common causes of freckles are too much exposure to sunlight, genetics and hormonal imbalance. Though freckles could be present anywhere on the body, they appear mostly on areas that are often exposed to the sun.

some natural ways to remove them or decrease their presence are thought to be :

>Lemon juice is a highly effective ingredient for treating freckles as well as brown spots. Lemon juice has skin lightening properties you can apply using a cotton swab and then rinse after 15 minutes doing this daily might lessens their appearance.or you can use lemon scrub .

>milk can help a lot to get rid of freckles. It is particularly useful for those with sensitive skin.

>Honey is excellent for fading freckles because it contains enzymes that help lighten skin pigmentation besides it moisturises the skin
>Papaya juice is another effective remedy to get rid of freckles. Papaya contain papain, a kind of enzyme that can help lighten freckles
>Onions also can be used to remove freckles and brown spots due to their sulfur content which has exfoliative property red onion is better
>sesame seeds,eggplants,castor oil,vitamin C all also known to affect the presence of freckles naturally
>the important thing is to use sunscreen protection whenever you go out in the sun if your skin is sensitive you can use 50 spf protection .
