With products that you can easily find in your kitchen you can reduce those pigmentation spots. Below I’ll make a list with the ingredients that are very useful in “wiping those brown spots away”.
Very simple! You just have to rub regularly the affected areas with potato slices. Or you can make potato juice and with the help of a cotton pad wipe the affected areas for a few minutes, every night.

You just have to mix apple cider vinegar and water in equal quantities, soak a cotton pad in the solution and apply on the affected areas. Let it act for several minutes then rinse with warm water.
