If you have melanin spots, I will suggest some home remedies when those chemical creams do not show positive effects. Always consult a dermatologist before using. Find out more information on how to use them:
- Wash with natural ingredients like cranberry extract and vitamin B5.
- Cut a lemon in half and rub the juice over.
- Use Aloe Vera plant lengthwise and rub its juice over the affected area.
- You could also benefit from Vitamin E oil by using it over the area.
- Make a paste of 4 almonds after soaking them in water.
- Apply a paste of few mint leaves.
With or without melanin...love yourself. Take care of your body. Live a healthy physical and spiritual life. Celebrate life taking over peace, hope and love. We are created by Jehovah who gave his son in demonstration of His love for all. And Jesus, God's son, rose from death to give us eternal life if we believe.
