Aloe Vera

Many cosmetics promise you aloe vera extracts as it is good for your skin, and is in fact considered to be the best when it comes to brown spots, dark spots, and age spots. You must rub aloe vera juice directly on your skin pigments and the spots once or twice daily regularly; it will help to remove the skin discolouration.

Milk has lactic acid in it, and when you apply this to your skin the lactic acid in it gradually helps to reduce skin’s pigmentation and lighten, brighten and tone your skin’s complexion. You don’t really have to wash your face with milk, instead just dab the milk with a cotton ball and apply it all over your spots. You can rinse off after leaving it on 8-10 minutes. You are advised to apply milk on your face at least twice everyday and you will find visible changes on your face within six weeks of time.
