Fade Dark Spots - Do It Yourself Formulas

Ever wish you could fade those dark spots that appear on your face, chest, shoulders, and hands? Some of the best remedies can be done at home with inexpensive ingredients.

One of the most effective dark spot removers is buttermilk. Women used buttermilk 200 years ago before fade creams and cosmetic procedures existed. And it really works!

Buttermilk Solution - Using a cotton ball or pad, rub buttermilk on your face or other affected area and let it dry. Rinse with tepid water. Moisturize well afterward because milk is a natural exfoliant.

Lemons - Cut a fresh cold lemon into slices. Dab the skin with the lemon and let dry. Rinse and moisturize. Put the rest of the lemon slices in a ziplock bag and refrigerate. This method takes about 3 weeks using every day to see results.

All Natural Pre-mix Solution - This remedy has more ingredients, but it works great! In a small tupperware container, mix together:

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Stir and smooth on the face or other spotty area once per day for a week. (The recipe above should be about enough for a week if used every day.) As always, rinse and moisturize after each use.
