Who wouldn't love to have fair hands and legs? Most of us face the problem of discolouration, isn't it?
Sometimes, the colour of our hands and legs is different as compared to that of our face.
While most of us only concentrate on making our face appear brighter, it is equally important to take care of the colour of our hands and legs. One of the major reasons for dark hands and legs is over-exposure to sun and skin tan.
Although there are umpteen ready-made creams that are available in the market to solve this issue, it might take time and a lot of money. Why to worry, when we have simple remedies that we can try at home to get instant results?
Yes! Here are some natural ingredients to brighten your hands and legs in less than 10 days. Take a look.
