You can also use various skin lighteners, from hydroquinone cream (a powerful bleaching agent that you will need to get a prescription for from your dermatologist or doctor) as well as other natural products around your house, including lemon juice and vitamin E.
It is also essential to wear sunscreen because if you exposed your skin to the sun, that will only cause current spots to get darker, thereby making them more noticeable and more difficult to get rid of.

Do this daily to help lift dead skin cells and diminish red spots and discolorations. Check out
