Shop the waterproof variety if you’re into swimming or sweat a lot. You must apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before being in the sun so that it can be absorbed by the skin. Remember to apply it again after a swimming or workout.

Coming to the natural remedies, you can use aloe vera, green tea bag, milk, and lemon juice on your dark spots.
