    Black marks in the skin is because of lack of skin care. In deeper layer of the Skin are the cells which produce melanin, a pigment which gives the skin ite colour. This pigment protects the skin from the direct rays of sun. Exposure to sun increases th eproduction of melanin which gives way to darker skin. To fight for the pigmentation you can go the home made complexion lotion.

    Lime flower 25g
    water 250ml
    sodium benzoate 1/4tsp

    Put the lime flower in hot water for an hour. Strain and let the mixture cool.Add sodium benzoate to it. This is a very good complexion lotion and for the better results add equal part of rose water to it. Keep it under refrigeration.

    Dear Singaramani Thangavel,

    You can use scrub to your face. Apply a little oil before going to bath and then use a paste made of Kasturi Turmeric powder, Rice or Green gram flour with a little milk.

    Apply on the face, leave for a few minutes till it dries up and then scrub with it in circular motions with your finger tips. Wash it with ordinary water. Then take your bath as usual.

    Just do this two times a week. You will see difference to your facial skin. If you do not want to use Kasturi turmeric powder get a scrub over the counter and then use it.

    If they are blackheads you can visit a beauty parlour and get facial done by the beautician. Your face will clear.

    With all this you have to drink lots of water, at least 8 -10 glasses now that the summer is fast approaching. The water should be enough to clear out all the toxins from your body.

    The point is that you should not feel thirst and then drink, your lips should not feel dried up. If that happens then your drinking water content is just not enough.

    Hi Singaramani Thangavel,

    1)You can use olive oil,that will fade your black marks in 3-4 weeks.

    2)Add 2-3 lemon juice to a tablespoon of milk,apply it all over your face for 10 minutes before bathing.

    3)Cucumber juice can be applied to lighten black marks.

    4)Lemon juice and honey can mixed and applied all over face.Lemon acts as bleaching agent and honey is an antibacterial agent.

    Black marks on the face are dead cells they form either due to improper face care or by the gone pimples. The best remedy to get rid of them is to apply curd mixed with few drops of lemon juice everynight till they disappear or you may also use aloe vera or glycerine gel on the infected area.

    All the Best.

    Dear Singaramani Thangavel,

    First for all dark spots on the face will be due to acne marks or other similar injury scars which will will darken over a period of time. The dark skin under your nose will also be a result of pigmentation problem. You need to follow the below strictly:
    1) Always apply a sunscreen whether inside or outside. UV rays from the computer also cause pigmentation. So apply sunscreen regularly at all times.
    2) Apply a 4% Hydrquinone cream on the marks and darkened areas. Some Hydroquinone creams come with Sunscreen, but may be expensive.
    3)If you are still getting acne and they are turning into black marks, you should apply Azelaic Acid cream which treats both Acne and Pigmentation.
    4) If you are very desperate and want the scars to fade sooner you can opt for more expensive treatments such as Glycolic Peels or other Chemical peels under a Dermatologist.

    Good Luck!
    Dr. Narendar.

    There are some medicated creams available in market for black marks. But its recommended that to get skin specialist opinion which one is best. Some examples are skinlite, cosmelite, melabest etc, this creams slowly removes black spots. It recommended that to use only at night, because this creams get reacted to sunlight. Other creams are scarend, scarend silicon gel from mankind company. You can use some ayurvedic products from patanjali. Hope this may help you.
    With Best Regards,

    Try potato and tomato extract, they are natural cleanser. Extract the juice of potato or tomato and apply on affected area. Wash after 15-20 minutes. It helps in skin lightening and removing dark skin patches if used regularly. Give it a try.
