Updated on August 14, 2012

With an upcoming casting call I decided that I needed to do a little skin maintenance to get my skin glowing. As I have said in many of my past hubs I choose to skip out on store bought remedies. I decided that I would give a natural remedy a try. When your skin breaks out sometimes it can leave small dark circles behind. I have found that I have a few dark acne spots on the sides of my arms. These can happen anywhere and to anyone so do not feel self-conscious about it. If it happens to bother you try this little fix out. While this will take time you should start to see results in about a week tops. The idea is to use natural bleaching elements as opposed to harsh chemicals found in store bought items. This solution also works for freckles and age spots.


Jar or air-tight container.

Coffee Mug


Chamomile Tea (I would personally opt for organic which is free of caffeine)

Cotton Balls

After you gather all of your materials take the mug and put about a half a cup into the mug, heat up the water in the microwave, and then put one bag of the chamomile tea into the mug. Brew a strong cup and then toss the tea bag away. Now take the mug of chamomile tea and pour it into the jar and set it aside. Take one lemon, cut it in half, and squeeze all the juice into the jar. Mix the contents with a spoon, cover with the lid, and set it into the refrigerator to cool.

After the mixture is cooled, you can now use it fade those spots. Twice a day take a few dabs of the mixture and put it onto your spots. Chamomile and Lemon of course are natural bleaching agents. Essentially it is the same idea as eating strawberries to whiten your teeth. This is a much healthier way to get rid of those spots than using products with harsh chemicals.

When it comes to storing your mixture I would only keep it for about 2 to 3 weeks. After that point I would discard the contents and make a new batch. Something else I would suggest is to get some Vitamin E oil to spot treat your acne spots as well. All you do is take some, put in on the spot, and massage for about two minutes. This will increase blood flow and encourage new skin cell growth. This is highly beneficial for you and can make the process go faster. Some advice I received was to do this before bed as it is oily and your skin is highly porous at night.

      The tea sounds like a procedure worth trying! I think I would have to make lots of tea though, so I don't drink all of my remedy! Voted up.
