Use lemons for brighter skin:

Blem­ishes, un­even skin tone and age spots can be hard to get rid of. While there are prod­ucts that can as­sist in bright­en­ing your skin, they can be pricey. Lemons are great for fad­ing dark marks and evening out blem­ishes. Dab a lit­tle lemon juice on your prob­lem ar­eas ev­ery day and in a few weeks you will see im­prove­ments.

Honey and sugar helps to ex­fo­li­ate:

Ex­fo­li­at­ing gets rid of dead skin cells and leaves you with a beau­ti­ful glow. For a DIY ex­fo­liant, mix sugar with a lit­tle honey and any type of oil ( co­conut, olive, etc.) and use it to scrub off any dead cells.
