Dubai: Several factors can cause darker skin on the hands and feet, including dirt, medications, environmental and chemical factors, infections, inflammation, and exposure to the sun’s damaging rays. Many beauty and cosmetics companies make skin lightening treatments, which can often be found in drug stores or pharmacies.
However, there are also many foods that can be applied topically to help lighten the skin, so you don’t have to go any farther than your kitchen to find the ingredients for skin lightening remedies.
It’s important to remember, though, that the best way to keep your skin healthy and radiant is by eating a healthy and balanced diet, exercising regularly, leading a healthy lifestyle, and taking care of your skin. Watch the following video for homemade natural beauty cream for hands and feet.

Apply foods containing lactic acid: Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid, which is a group of acids naturally occurring in certain foods. These acids remove the top layer of dead skin and are often used in commercial skin care treatments to alleviate dry, scaly, or darkened the skin. Only use lactic acid products at night, as it can make your skin even more susceptible to UV damage.
Apply a thin layer of plain yogurt to your hands and feet before bed. Leave the yogurt on for five to 10 minutes, and rinse with warm water. Repeat a couple of times per week. Remember that even if you do this, you will still need to wear SPF 15 or higher sunscreen during the day to prevent sun damage. (wikihow.com)
