Nobody prays for dark spots on the face. Everybody loves a smooth, flawless and even skin but, that is not always the case.
Hyper-pigmentation or “dark spots,” may be due to acne scars, excessive sun exposure, excess secretion of melanin on the skin, hormonal changes, vitamin deficiencies, lack of sleep and too much stress.
Dark spots, patches and other marks on the face can be embarrassing at times and some people try to cover it up with make-up.
You do not have to cover your face with heavy makeup or subject your delicate skin to harsh chemical treatments as there are simple and natural homemade remedies which can help reduce the appearance of dark spots and patches on the face.
Here are 10 ways to get rid of dark spots.

This is good for skin exfoliation. Make a paste of oatmeal and warm water. Apply all over the face and let it stay for some minutes. Wash it off with warm water. Do this once or twice a week.
