All women long to have clear and glowing skin but when the skin is exposed to dust, sun rays, pollution and other environmental elements, it often gets dark spots and blemishes which make your face look dull. The biggest reason behind this is the effect of the rays of the sun. Regular exposure to the rays of the sun increases the melanin component of the skin and this alters the color of the skin at various places, resulting in dark spots which can also lead to an uneven skin tone. Inadequate nutrition and eating too many medicines may also lead to dark spots and blemishes on the face.
Today, we are going to tell you a few effective home cures to get rid of blemishes:
1) Lemon Juice and Honey
Mix ½ tsp lemon juice with a tsp of honey and apply it on the affected area. Wash after half an hour.
