Summer’s warm weather is nearing it’s end and that means we are having to come to terms with how all of our ‘fun-in-the-sun’ wreaked havoc on our beauty regime! Lots of time spent outdoors (and not being in our early 20’s anymore!) made Claudia and I both realize that after the summer tan fades a bit, we’re noting that we both have a few dark spots on our face, a result from a lot of time spent in the sun.
Rather than spending $40 plus on a beauty cream, I consulted the web and some of our beauty expert friends for an at-home remedy. The most amazing thing you can ever do to lighten dark spots is beloved Vitamin E! It is a powerful antioxidant that helps repair damaged cells and strengthen new ones.
To use Vitamin E:
I’ve taken to breaking open a capsule at night and applying to some of my dark spots that came about this summer. And get this, IT IS ALREADY WORKING! Incredible.

Another amazing trick that is our go to not only for dark spots but also treatment of acne – is a very simple face mask using honey and lemon! The lemon juice lightens dark spots and tames acne flair ups, and the honey is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
To make the Lemon and Honey Face Mask:
Simply cut a lemon in half and drizzle it with a bit of honey. Squeeze the concoction over your face and let set for 20 minutes before rinsing off.
