We’re all familiar with the condition of dark patches. They can appear as a result of waxing, shaving, sun exposure or usage of deodorants and these patches usually appear on the armpits, inner thighs and the neck area.
People who suffer from obesity, diabetes, or gastrointestinal cancer are also prone to these dark spots on the skin.
Although many commercial beauty products and treatments promise to help in their removal, these products often cost lots of money and still can’t get the job done. This is why we recommend that you try the following homemade remedy which is 10 times cheaper and completely natural.
Olive Oil, Baking Soda and Salt Remedy
Ingredients you will need:
- 1 tbsp. of Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp. of Salt
- 1 tbsp. of Baking Soda
Mix all the ingredients together until you get a paste-like mixture. Apply the paste on the affected areas with dark patches and let it sit for 20 minutes, before washing it off with cold water.
Aside from this, you can also use another technique which is also famous for eliminating dark stains. You will need lemon, milk and white clay.
Start off by putting the white clay in a bowl and adding the milk and lemon. Mix the ingredients together and apply the mixture on the affected areas. Let it sit for 15 minutes then rinse it off with cold water.
Tips and Recommendations:
- Repeat the treatment 3 times a week, until the stains are eliminated.
- Avoid sun exposure without using UV protection creams during the treatment.
- Consume lots of water and vitamin E.
- For best results use skim milk, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.
- You can also add coconut oil for improved effects.
