There are several remedies that can be used for lightening blemishes. With time and regular usage of these home remedies, it is possible that your blemishes may entirely go away. There are also some home remedies which can help blemishes from occurring on your skin.

• Camphor has long been known for its properties that help ease headaches. However, camphor also has the ability to lighten blemishes. Take about seven parts of the extract of camphor and add to it two parts of the extract of almonds, one part of sandalwood powder, and dilute it to thirty parts with rosewater. Using a ball of cotton, rub this weak solution on your entire face every day.

• Orange peel contains a lot of vitamin C and can be used to lighten the blemishes on the skin. Take the peel of a few oranges and dry them in the sun. Once they are dry, grind them into a fine powder. To this powder, add the juice of a lemon and a teaspoon of rosewater to make a paste. Apply this paste on the affected areas to improve skin texture and remove the blemishes. This remedy is especially useful for pockmarks.
