1. Mix 1 tablespoon Lemon and 1 tablespoon honey. Apply this mixture on the effected areas. Lemon contains natural bleaching agents. It make the dark spots light. Honey will make your skin radiant.
Apply the mixture for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with cold water. 2.Eat 1 pomegranate daily. This is one of the best remedies that helps in attaining a glowing Skin.
