In a tropical country like India, skin is exposed to the sun all year round. While this is healthy for the skin in many ways , it also has its downside. Excessive exposure to the sun can lead to hyperpigmentation, a condition where patches of skin become darker than the natural skin colour.

Contrary to popular belief, hyperpigmentation will not fade away naturally but has to be treated. To treat it right, we recommend using the Pond’s White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream. Containing the radical Genwhite Formula, it is absorbed deep into the skin and acts immediately to help fade dark spots. With SPF 20 PA and a non-greasy formula it’s easy to use every day, and over time, will even out your skin tone.


Rich in citric acid, lemon is known to be a good bleaching agent. Apply freshly extracted lemon juice on your face and leave it on for five to seven minutes. Rinse it off with warm water. Follow this regime a couple of times everyday, till you see results. Owing to its bleaching property, lemon helps even out skin tone and thus helps in the treatment of hyperpigmentation.


How many times has your grandmother advised you to apply turmeric for healthier skin? She’s been right all along. Turmeric contains curcuminoids which are compounds that possess medicinal properties. They assist in evening out skin tone by reducing the production of excess melanin.

Honey and milk

With continuous application, the lactic acid in milk will help get rid of dead skin. Honey is therapeutic because it nourishes and moisturises skin. Therefore this combination of honey and milk works wonders to treat hyperpigmentation effectively. Mix honey with milk and apply this on you skin. Leave the application for sometime and gently rinse it off with lukewarm water or wipe it off with a warm and wet towel.
