Sun exposure causes the worst and most irreversible kind of damage to your skin. From tanning, dark spots and pigmentation to more serious issues such as skin cancer, unprotected sun exposure is a lot more harmful than you could even imagine.

Why this works

Potato juice is a great source of natural bleaching properties that help lighten dark spots and make your skin tone appear more even. Additionally, since it is filled with anti-ageing benefits, potato juice makes your skin appear youthful and radiant.

Lemon juice is chock full of vitamin C that helps lighten dark spots and give your face that beautiful glow. Its natural acidic properties are a superb organic bleaching agent, which helps reduce dark brown spots. It works by breaking down the melanin pigmentation and also curbing its overproduction. 

Milk powder is a lot more potent than regular milk, as it is undiluted. It has a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than liquid milk too. The lactic acid in milk helps smoothen skin texture, lighten skin and keep it healthy and moisturised.
