Home Remedies to Get Rid Of Freckles

7. Castor Oil

Castor oil is another natural remedy to treat freckles at home. It will give you an even skin tone and help freckles fade away.

  • Before going to bed, apply castor oil on the affected skin. The next morning, wipe it off with a soft tissue and then rinse the skin with lukewarm water. Continue this remedy daily until you get rid of the freckles. For best results, opt for pure, cold-pressed castor oil which is tasteless and odorless.
  • Alternatively, you can use vitamin E oil or olive oil to reduce blemishes and freckles.

8. Horseradish

Being high in vitamin C, horseradish is good for fading freckles and blemishes naturally. It also works an antioxidant to maintain healthy, younger-looking skin.

  • Dab horseradish juice on the affected skin and let it sit for 10 minutes. Do this once daily to lighten your freckles.
  • Alternatively, add one tablespoon of powdered horseradish root to a cup of milk and boil it. Cool and strain it. Apply this solution on your skin and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it off. Do this four to five times a week until you get encouraging results.
  • Another option is to mix one grated horseradish with the juice of one lemon to make a paste. Apply this paste on the affected skin area and allow it to dry. Then wash it off with cold water. Follow this remedy every other day until you see improvement.

  4. I started using lemon and vinegar, I tell the results are astounding in less that a week big freckles are peeling off. Earlier I was using cream with exfoliation elements did not show good results. But the downside of using vinegar and lemon its painful itchy but as they say no pain no gain.
    Goodluck

  7. Hello as I constantly struggle (since my teenage years) with a ton of ugly and dark freckles I am really looking forward to trying some of the above methods. Does anyone have a favorite method that really works,that they would recommend???? And if possible if anyone has effective methods can you please tell me not only which method but about how long until it actually worked or until they were mostly gone… May sound a bit odd but I am in my best friends wedding in Sept and am so self conscious of them. I need them all gone! Thanks:-)

    • Some people just don’t like their freckles because they are afraid it might take over their beauty some people just don’t like them because they are big

    • hi i wanna share my experience,i had plenty freckles on my face,i tried using all medicinal suggestions written above but it really don’t work,i tried using pure aloe vera mix with evaporated milk and apply over night, it help me a lot,first i did is every night i wash my face with warm water and soap,next step is i put aloe vera mix with carnation evap milk on affected area over night,in the morning i washed again with warm water,after washing then i apply warm butter on face and leave for 15 min, then rinse,after rinse apply coco butter on face and leave all day, do this everyday until freckles gone,i never use lemon and vinegar to put on my face over night,i was trying but it make my face having more problems,it burn my skin,lemon is good and pure but only if you apply on affected area just leave for about 3 to 5 minutes then rinse afterwards not to get burn…………..freckles does not remove as fast as we expected,it need lots of patient and sacrifice to cure it it depend how we help our self…..no pressure but just try this remedy,hope this helpful to you.

    Hello, I am the same. I apply lemon juice every afternoon on my arms for about 30 minutes…… they are gradually fading (getting lighter). I definitely reccomend you try this. If you have already tried lemon juice maybe it didn’t work because you didn’t leave it on long enough, or maybe try applying more. I hope this helps, as I said I am the same and in am slowly noticing a difference.

  31. Guys this really worked for me
    You need:
    1) Yogurt
    2) Lemon or Lime
    3) Honey
    4) Bowl
    5) Spoon
    Now you get your bowl and put some yogurt and squeeze one lemon or lime into it and honey now you will need to mix them with your spoon in the bowl now apply it on your freckles and leave it for about 10-15 minutes now after the time passed you go wash your face but as your doing it you scrub your face and then clean it off. If you have left over you can save it for tomorrow or whenever you use it. Also just do it ones a day everyday.
