A couple of days ago we posted a review on probably the best treatment for Melasma – Meladerm.
Because quite a few people had questions in relation to this product and whether or not there were any cost effective alternatives available, we decided to write another post to see if we could move you guys in the right direction.
Therefore we wanted to offer some extra advice on how to resolve the problem at home, cheaply and by yourself.
In this post we’re going to discuss a couple of methods you can easily do yourself to help reduce the appearance melasma.
Home Remedy For Melasma: Step By Step Process
Here’s a great step-by-step process for treating your melasma. Word of warning though, the ingredients required aren’t going to be very pleasant.
We should also warn you to be careful NOT to get any of the ingredients below into your eyes. If this does happen, please make sure you immediately rinse them out with cold water and if any serious damage is caused, go straight to your nearest hospital.
Here we go…
- The first step is to apply some vinegar…that’s right smelly old vinegar, white if possible. This should help to cleanse and soften your skin and allow the ingredients in the next couple of steps to work more easily. Gently massage it into your skin for 2-3 minutes before washing off with warm water.
- Onion juice mixed with apple cider vinegar is next. Apply the exact same way, again for 2-3 minutes massaging into your skin before washing off under warm water. In the past many people have seen great results using this mixture on their age spots.
- The final step is a little obvious and it’s nothing more then an application of lemon juice. Make sure you use freshly squeezed lemons and not the fake preserved stuff. Apply to your skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes. You may notice a burning sensation at first, but it should go away after a while. Wash off with warm water once time is up. Lemon juice will work to bleach the melanin in your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation(most common cause of melasma).
For best results, it’s recommended you try and stick to this routine twice a day and as you start to notice a lightening of your melasma, up the time spent on step 3 to 20-30 minutes if you can.

The remedy I’ve shown you is great for those looking for a more simple solution to the problem. If your melasma is quite severe, you might want to think about giving this one a try:
These Might Not Work For Everyone!
Like most home remedies, this one as a treatment of Melasma may not allow everyone to see results. Instead depending on the severity of the condition, you may need something a little stronger.
As we mentioned earlier, we did discuss the best paid melasma treatment method a couple of days ago, that of course being Meladerm.
