Pigmentation is a huge problem now a days .And am amazed to see them on every other face part from mine.There are a lot of artificial / chemical methods that claim to reduce and gradually reduce the spots , but most are ineffective and may pose even bigger problems which I would deal in an different post later.One Ayurvedic recipe that would help fade these spots slowly but effectively is the nutmeg and sandalwood pack.
You will need the following:
1.Whole nutmeg
2.Unboiled milk
3.Pure Sandalwood powder or stick.
  • Nutmeg is a spice and you get it as a whole which needs to be ground against any coarse surface along with milk and slowly you would find a very fine paste.About  a teaspoon of this should be enough to be used once.Now keep this aside.
  • Take a little less than a teaspoon of pure sandalwood powder and mix it with the above set aside paste.Or you can take a small block of sandalwood ,ground on to a clean coarse surface with water which yields a fine paste.
  • Mix the two fine pastes to one and apply on cleansed face until just before dry ,or about 15 minutes.
You might find a little tingling sensation but don't worry about it , the sandalwood counters the stinginess of the spice and it does not harm the skin ,like chemical peels do.

Try it and do let me know how it worked for you.
P.S I would recommend a patch test before using it all over your face.
