Lemons Natural skin Care, Dark Spot Removal Natural Skin Lightening

Skin bleaching has become a hot topic in the past few years both here in the United States and as well as in many countries and communities all over the world. Aside from issues of identity and self-hatred, there are also health risks associated with using skin bleaching products — many of these products are unregulated or, as in the case of chemicals like Hydroquinone, have adverse affects after long term use. With that, here are a few all-natural alternatives to fading dark spots. We recommend testing these solutions on a small area before applying to large sections of your face.

Despite all these discussions, hyperpigmentation persists as a problem for people with darker skin. Here are a few all-natural solutions some homemade, some store bought, that may help those prone to this skin issue. Remember, however, in this case slow and steady wins the race, don’t expect any overnight results with these safer alternatives.
