Beauty Tips for Girls with Freckles

As a person who has a smattering of freckles on her face, I know the agony that girls with freckles go through. Although freckles are supposed to be cute, they seem anything but cute when you are trying to get ready for a big event. Trying to get rid of freckles has been a life long endeavor for me, and I have met with only relative success. If you have freckles, your best friend is a high SPF sunscreen. Freckles become more prominent when you expose your skin to the sun. So, you need to make sure that you stay out of the sun and apply sunscreen religiously. The best way to attain smooth and spotless skin is to have a two pronged approach to eliminate them. You need to use dermat treatment in conjunction with some home remedies for fading freckles. Here we are going to discuss some beauty tips for girls with freckles.

Tips For Fading Freckles

One of the best tip for getting rid of freckles is to wash your face twice a day with a mild exfoliating face wash. Face washes or cleansers that contains lactic acid and tiny micro beads are ideal for skin with freckles. Make sure that you use a mild exfoliator and avoid using exfoliators containing coarse grains. Too much of it can strip your skin of essential oils that will make your skin inflamed and blotchy. Always apply a broad spectrum sunscreen containing SPF of at least 30, to protect your skin from pigmentation. An easy and inexpensive homemade beauty tip for girls for fading freckles is to apply a mixture of honey and lemon juice on the freckles. Alternatively, applying horseradish juice mixed with yogurt also shows good results.

Weekly use of a good, at home microdermabrasion kit can work wonders for your skin. It helps to lighten and fade freckles and make skin smooth and soft. Another advantage of using microdermabrasion kits is that you can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles with regular usage. Visit a dermatologist who will prescribe you a hydroquinone bleaching cream and retinoid cream that will boost cell renewal and help to lighten freckles. You can also try a good freckle removal cream. If you are looking for quicker and more effective results, you can opt for a trichloroacetic acid peel or a session of Intense Pulsed Light. These procedures are expensive but the results can be dramatic.

Tips for Camouflaging Freckles

One of the best ways to tackle freckles is to camouflage them with makeup. For camouflaging freckles you need a creamy concealer that is two shades lighter than your skin tone. Choose yellow based concealer rather than pink based ones as they are more effective in hiding freckles. Pat the concealer on the freckles with your fingertip or a concealer brush. Do not attempt to smudge or rub in the concealer on your skin. Next apply foundation on your skin taking care to blend the foundation with the concealer, so that your skin looks even toned. Finally, set the concealer with a dusting of loose powder. For a flawless complexion, use yellow toned translucent powder for setting the foundation.

These were some beauty tips for girls with freckles. Freckles can make a person look older than she is, as skin looks blotchy and dull. Minimizing sun exposure and using a topical cream containing retinoid or hydroquinone is the best way to lighten freckles. If you want to prevent more freckles from appearing on your skin, follow a proper skin care routine and always wear sunscreen.
