How to use sugar to erase brown spots on hands

Our neck and hands betray best the years pass, and if the skin is stained, some extra years are added.

Brown spots, darker or lighter, are caused by prolonged sun exposure without using protective creams. Sometimes, they are the consequence of liver problems, of birth control pills or of certain allergies.

Here’s an herbal remedy for alleviating dark spots:

Mix half a teaspoon of sugar with the juice squeezed from half a lemon. Apply the solution on the stain and let it act 10 minutes, then rinse. The sugar granules and bleaching acids in lemon juice will attenuate stains and the skin will look smoother and younger.
