It is vital that you take a conservative approach with these DIY homemade beauty remedies. Apply a small amount to your face and leave it on for a short amount of time, then work your way up to larger amounts and longer times until your skin can handle it. If you feel any discomfort, stinging, or a burning sensation rinse off the mixture immediately with lukewarm water. While you are using these natural remedies to diminish dark spots do your very best to limit your sun exposure. Remember that a good sunscreen is a must even in the winter.
