Even out skintone. 1. Exfoliate your skin using a fruit peel, facial scrub or microdermabrasion method to remove the dried layer of dead cells on the skin. 2 Mix together oatmeal with a few drops of lemon and honey to make a loose paste. Apply on the skin, leave it for a few minutes and rub off in circular motion with the fingertips. The rough granules in the oatmeal act as a natural exfoliator. Lemon is a natural bleach and honey moisturizes the skin.
