And egg strengthens collagen that makes cells plump. It replaces blotchy spot prone skin with fresh blemish free and fairer skin.
2. Lemon And Ginger Juice Serum
While lemon can alone bleach dark spots from hands, but addition of ginger juice to lemon makes a powerful solution for spots caused due to any reason, be it acne, sun, inflammation or pollution.
