Brief Answer:
Carrot paste is one such medicine

Detailed Answer:

The black patches on the face of your mother in law could be due to suntan. This leads to pigmentation of the skin resulting in dark skin.

Please grind a few carrots, add half a lemon to it and one tomato. Make it into a thick paste and apply it on the areas of dark skin.

This needs to be done on alternate days for a month at least to see the changes.

Alternatively, Kojic acid peels or chemical peels are available to do the same. You could consult a Dermatologist for the same.

Hope this helps. Regards,
