Moderate exposure to sunlight is beneficial because it favors vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D helps “feed” the bones and fix calcium in the body. The sun’s rays are helpful in the treatment of skin diseases such as psoriasis. Psoriasis is a condition manifested by the appearance of red spots on the skin, covered with white pearly shells.
But there are lots of cases, when the sun is not as beneficial for some people and can produce skin disaster: explosion of freckles, skin aging, wrinkles, permanent skin redness and various types of skin cancer.
- Lemon puts freckles on the run
Freckles are yellow-brown spots. Usually they have hereditary nature, but they tend to appear and multiply during the spring and summer, due to prolonged exposure to the sun.
Prepare a mask based on lemon juice using 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, 20 g of yeast, and 20 g of wheat bran. Apply the paste to the face and leave it to act for 20 minutes.
- Onion erases freckles
Make a solution from onion juice mixed with olive oil in equal parts. Use this solution on the affected areas by dabbing with a cotton pad several times a day, for a week.
The infusion of pasqueflower is great for both freckles and sun spots. Prepare it by pouring a teaspoon of herb to a cup of water, and then rub the affected areas at least three times a day.
- Sun spots disappear with dandelion milk
Due to ageing, brown spots appear on the face, hands and feet. They arise, in most cases, on the areas that were more exposed to the sun.
Pigmentation spots are prone in women; the most affected areas are the cheeks, forehead, upper lip, nose and chin.
Dandelion milk is obtained by cutting the root of dandelion – the extracted liquid removes the spots and makes the skin shinier.
