This is what I tried to remove black spots from my hands. Take Brihans GreenLeaf Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel and mix it with the Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Hand and Body Lotion, which has an SPF of 25 and PA+++. Because of the presence of sun protection factor in this lotion, you can use it during the day time also. This combination of the two lotions worked well on my hands. All you have to do is to take small quantities of both lotions on your hand and then blend them well. Massage your hands with it and wait for some time before you wash off. Use this regularly and this will provide you blemish free hands.

You can make a hand scrub at home using natural ingredients. Take some olive oil and mix it with sugar and a few drops of lemon juice. Scrub your hands with this till all the sugar granules dissolve.
