Home Remedies for Fair Skin

All of us want glowing and flawless skin. Living in a city and working outside makes our skin dull and dark. Other than pollution and suntan, factors like stress, poor diet, drinking, and smoking are also responsible for dark skin.

These days there are many instant fairness creams that lighten up your complexion for the time being.
