It's not easy to achieve perfect skin, as some may find it impossible due to the many problems associated with skin care. Our skin colour is derived from a pigment called melanin.
Damage to the cells producing melanin leads to an overproduction of melanin that further leads to the discolouration or pigmentation of the skin.
Pigmentation can be an early sign of ageing, and it can be left over from the scarring of acne marks. Pigmentation is basically caused by dark spots and an uneven skin tone.

Lemon: Lemon is known as a natural bleach and it has numerous antioxidant properties. Mix the juice of a lemon into a little bit of honey. Honey would prevent the lemon from drying out the skin.

Turmeric: Turmeric has been used for centuries to achieve a brighter, more vibrant skin tone. A turmeric face pack would help reduce pigmentation by a huge amount. The pack should be a mix of turmeric, milk and lemon juice.
