Apple cider vinegar

This miraculous ingredient truly can work wonders for your skin by working as a natural bleaching and peeling agent. All you need to do is mix one part of apple cider vinegar with one part of water. Apply this solution to all the affected areas and leave it on for at least 10-15 minutes. Once done, rinse your face with warm water.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice is rich in Vitamin C and citric acid, both of which can work wonders for your skin. It contains brightening agents and properties that act like bleach and can thus help even out your skin tone. So, apply some lemon juice (diluted with water) to the affected areas and leave it on for about 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off. It'll work its magic in no time.


04/6Green tea

Green tea

Green tea contains antioxidants as well as a compound called catechins that can help protect your skin against the sun's harmful rays. It also contains moisturising properties. Either drink 1-2 cups of green tea per day or apply it topically by brewing some green tea. And then dip a cotton ball in the tea and apply it to the affected areas.




Turmeric also contains skin lightening properties that can help even out your skin tone while also moisturising your skin. You should make a paste out of turmeric powder and milk and then apply the paste to your skin. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse with cold water.
