What are the best remedies for dark arms and feet? Does natural remedies really work? I have dry skin and could not bear lemon on my face.

Natural doesn't work: People use sunblock moisturizer. Avoiding exposure to the sun will let skin lighten up, but the color won't be lighter than one's natural untanned color.
