Mix it well and apply this paste on your face. Let it stay for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes massage your face for a minute or two. This will help in exfoliating dead skin.

Lemon juice & aloe vera
Aloe vera contains many essential vitamins and has hydrating and depigmentation properties. If you have acne prone skin then this solution will also help to keep your acne in control.

Key points to remember
- Which ever remedy you choose to follow, use every day for 20 days at least. After that, you can limit the usage to once or twice a week.
- While applying the mask, concentrate more on the dark spots.
- For first timers, it will sting a bit because of lemon juice which is normal. So don’t panic. It will subside from the second usage.
- Rinse off the mask with normal water only. Do not use soap or face wash for a few hours.
- Since you are using lemon juice on your skin, it will increase sun sensitivity. So make sure that you avoid direct sunlight and wear sun block every time!
