Brown spots commonly known as Solar Lentiginous often appear on a body of aged people but it’s not necessary. They can also appear on the bodies of people who get a lot of exposure to Ultraviolet radiations or tanning beds. The main cause of their formation is the clumping of the “melanin pigment” that is found in a topmost layer of our skin. These spots are harmless but look ugly so here are they ways with which you can make them almost disappear.

Simply take one medium sized potato and grate it into a bowl. Add some honey into it to make a paste. Apply this mixture on brown spots and leave it for about 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and feel the difference.
