As you most likely know, freckles are round and dark colored spots, which appear in various colors and shapes. Ranging from red to brown, from 2 to 4 millimeters, they are mostly caused by high amount of dark pigment in the skin called melanin. High amounts of melanin are mostly caused by genetics, hormonal changes, stress, exposure to the sunlight and so on. The important question however is, can you remove freckles? And what is the best freckle removal cream? Let’s find out!
I have had freckles ever since I can remember. It didn’t bother me when I was a child, but as I grew older and actually started to care about my appearance, I wasn’t exactly happy about them. There are people who like freckles and consider them beautiful, but I am sure as hell not one of them. Back then there wasn’t any Internet or any other source of information that could help me with my problem. So I had to work with makeup to cover them. I am naturally pale, so with some extra makeup I looked like a zombie. So there was no other way than to get over this fact.
My good friend had a wedding a few months ago, and when I saw myself in the photos, I realized how much I actually hate my freckles. I decided to find a way how to remove them once and for all and nothing was going to stop me! Women with enough motivation can be quite dangerous!
I have to say that I am not a fan of conventional treatments of any kind. I had my experience with really serious side effects and allergies in the past. Ever since then I am trying to use natural treatments as much as I can and this case wasn’t any different.
As you will soon see, I had tried many remedies for my freckles. Some of them worked better, some of them didn’t work at all, and one, in particular, was perfect, but I will get there soon. So grab a tea or something and enjoy my little research.
List of Natural Remedies
So the first thing I had tried was sour milk. It contains lactic acid, which inhibits a hormone called tyrosinase. This hormone should lighten your skin. There are of course commercially used cosmetics, which contain the synthetic tyrosinase, but as I said, I had a bad experience with stuff like that, so I went the organic way.
All you need is sour milk and water. Put sour milk into a small bowl, and then use it to wash your face. Let it there for a while and then rinse your face. I had been using this method for 2 weeks, around 3 times a day, and I have to say there was some slight improvement, but really nothing significant. I decided to stick with the method for another week, but no further signs of improvement.
Honey can supposedly slow down the anti-aging process and has anti-bacterial properties. Mix honey with some warm water and then heat it slightly, just don’t overdo it. Spread the honey all over the affected areas and let it be a few minutes. Then rinse your face afterward.
If you want to go further, then mix honey with wheat germ and water. Or you can mix honey with yogurt and proceed just as before. Honestly, I had tried all 3 methods and hadn’t seen any sign of improvement whatsoever.
Buttermilk supposedly helps your skin to lighten and make freckles fade. Furthermore, it makes your skin smooth and supple. All you have to do is apply the buttermilk, leave it there for 10 minutes and rinse it with warm water. Do so at least twice a day.
Another thing you can try is to mix oatmeal with buttermilk and create a thick paste. Apply it, leave it there for 30 minutes and wash off with cold water. Do this once a day. Another option is mixing lemon juice with buttermilk, but I haven’t tried that one.
For me, there was no improvement regarding my freckles, but I have to say that my skin was indeed smoother. So from time to time I actually still use the buttermilk for cosmetic purposes.
This one was quite unexpected, but I decided to go with it. Horseradish is full of vitamin C. It works as an antioxidant, so it has additional cosmetic properties as well. Put horseradish juice on your affected area and leave it be for 10 minutes. Using this method once, a day should do the trick.
However, I read about an easier way how to remove freckles and I decided to go with that one. I added one tablespoon of powdered horseradish to a cup of milk and then I boiled it. I cooled it and applied to my freckles. I left it there for 20 minutes and then I washed it. I did this once a day for 2 weeks and hadn’t seen any improvement. But my skin was glowing a bit more and looked healthier, so there are some benefits here after all
I didn’t really expect anything from this one, and it seems that I was right. I grinded a tablespoon of sesame seeds and mixed them with a tablespoon of turmeric powder. I added a bit of water, made a paste and applied. I let it be for 20 minutes, rinsed and after a week there was no improvement and no cosmetic benefits either.
My journey to finding the best freckle removal cream was slowly coming to an end (just as my patience). Papaya contains a special enzyme that exfoliates the skin and inhibits the already mentioned tyrosinase, just like the sour milk. I basically crushed papaya sliced and applied them on my face. Let them there for a while and I have to say, that after a week I saw some slight improvement. I suppose that anything that inhibits tyrosinase will work to some extent, but it will not remove the freckles completely.
To prove my hypothesis, I decided to try sour cream. It’s similar to sour milk, but not exactly identical. This method is a little bit more complicated. In addition to water and sour cream, you will also need moisturizer and sunscreen.
I applied the sour cream on my face, just like you would do with a regular mask. Let it there for 15 to 30 minutes, but I didn’t wash it off with water. Instead, I wiped my face with a paper towel and then I applied moisturizer. Also don’t forget to apply the sunscreen if it’s hot and sunny outside.
I had been using this method for 2 weeks, and I had to say, that this had been so far the most effective one. It wasn’t exactly a miracle either, but the improvement was visible. My estimate is that 20% of my freckles disappeared, but I couldn’t get rid of the rest no matter what I tried.
So Can You Remove Freckles at All?
Well, I admit that at this point I wasn’t exactly full of hope. There was, however, one more option, but that one was paid, so I was quite hesitant. But considering how much money I spent on these remedies that didn’t work, it was nothing. It’s a program called Skin Whitening Forever.
I was pretty skeptical about the program, I admit. I went through dozens of reviews and testimonials and even though that some of them were obviously fake, I still decided to go with the program for one particular reason. It’s affordable, and it comes with a money-back guarantee that lasts for 60-days. So if the program doesn’t work, or if it’s an utter crap, then you can get a refund, simple as that. So considering I had nothing to lose at this point, I decided to go with it.
Word of Advice
Before we start, however, I mentioned fake and misleading reviews in the last paragraph. Yes, there are websites that contain completely wrong information about the program, but that’s not all. These websites also sell copies of the program for twice its regular cost. So please, don’t get ripped off and always make sure that you purchase the program from the official website only.
What Is It?
Skin Whitening Forever is a digital program. Basically an eBook. It will teach you and show you, step by step, how to finally get rid of your freckles. It was created by Eden Diaz, who works as a specialized skin care consultant. The entire eBook is 75 pages long, which is more than enough to learn everything important about your condition. Even though the name suggests that the program should primarily be used for skin whitening, don’t pay any attention to it. It works for many skin complications due to its holistic approach, but I still think that Skin Clearing Forever would be a more suitable name.
Entire eBook works on a completely natural methods and its quite unique. It uses holistic approach so it doesn’t target only the affected area, but it heals your body overall. Improves your health raises your energy levels and much more. Conventional treatments target only the surface, but this method goes really deep. It focuses on the root cause of your freckles, which are often a sign of something being wrong with your body.

Part I liked the most is that the eBook will show you just how you can make your own cream against freckles at home. And I have to admit, it was the most effective cream I have ever tried, and that was a huge surprise.
