Here's how to get rid of black spots at home.

Milk magic: Mix two tablespoons of skimmed milk powder with hydrogen peroxide (available at the chemist shops). Make a thick paste. Apply and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

Cleanse and care: Mix 1/2 teaspoon of plain granules in your cleansing cream and rub it gently on the skin, concentrating on the spots. Rinse face with cool water. In case of oily skin, use it twice a week. For dry skin, use it once a week.

Almond helps: Crush some almonds or some cereal (broken wheat) and add two tablespoons of honey. Mix them well and make a paste. Gently rub the granular paste on the face for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Carrot and vitamin C: Take carrot pulp and mix it with fuller's earth to make a thick paste. Crush a vitamin C tablet in it. Apply the mixture for 20 minutes and rinse off. Do this once a week.

Castor oil and vitamin E: Break a vitamin E capsule and mix in a few drops of castor oil. Apply it on the skin and leave it for 20 minutes, then rinse off.
