brown spots home remedy – I have to admit I gave up the lemon juice remedy after 2 weeks. I have one particular age spot on my cheek that's been there for the last 10 years. I've tried natural fade cream with arbutin, kojic acid, vitamin C, licorice extract, but it only fades the age spots but doesn't completely remove it. Unfortunately only hydroquinone (a carcinogenic) actually works. Photofacials are also effective. But you can try the DIY methods and see if it works for you.
