Ever heard of people using buttermilk? Buttermilk contains lactic acid and lactic acid helps exfoliate the skin to remove blemishes and brown spots without drying out your skin. All you need to do is apply buttermilk on your brown spots using a cotton ball and leave it on for a few minutes before washing the area with water. If you have oily skin or acne, you can also add some lemon juice to the buttermilk.
Another option is to mix four teaspoons of buttermilk and two teaspoons of tomato juice together and then apply this mixture on the affected skin.
Repeat either of these remedies once or twice daily until you are satisfied with the results.
