My back, arms have blotchinesss and uneven skin tone. My hips have stretchmarks. I would love to even out these areas. As for my back, its pretty bad and i am embarassed to wear low back dresses and saree blouses. I tried tomato and lemon and my skin broke out in rashes. I must be allergic to tomatoes. Are there other homemade remedies that actually work? I am reluctant and feel guilty to try skin lightening/brightening products. I don't want to be a lot fairer. I want to keep my same color but make it better. I refuse to try fair and lovely because i heard bad things about the product itself & boycotting after i saw their demeaning commercials. I heard of Godiva skincare line, papaya-based products, Fair and Flawless and Diana Stadler. Anyone tried them?
