Natural Blemish Lighteners

Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are common among people of color. Choosing from the many products available to "even" one's complexion can be a bit overwhelming -- and expensive. Below are some thrifty alternatives that may be worth trying. Realize that this process may take weeks or longer to experience noticeable results:

Yogurt and Orange Juice
Honey and Lemon Juice
Cucumber and Lemon Juice
All recipes found here.

Lemon Mint Honey and Orange
Recipe found here.

Be sure to use sunscreen in the daytime to minimize repigmentation of your darker regions.

As always, I encourage you to seek a real expert -- your dermatologist -- for other options.

What works for Loo's dark spots? Using lemon juice, brown sugar, or L'Oréal Revitalift Night Cream (the most effective + expensive of the three options).
