How do I cover a dark birthmark on my leg when my skin is quite pale? Is there something that would permanently fade it? A bleach maybe, I've heard lemon juice is a natural bleach? I'm going on vacation this year and need a cheap remedy that will last.

Camouflaging Birthmarks

Wanting to cover unwanted birthmarks and blemishes is a common reflex. There are products on the market like camouflage make up that are designed to cover dark areas. Bleaching creams will work sometimes, but you have to be extremely careful when using them and should probably consult a dermatologist before attempting to bleach the area. Lemon juice may help but probably won't do much to correct the problem.
