Home Remedies to Get Rid of Age (Liver) Spots

 

By Tiffany Moore

Age spots, also called liver spots, senile lentigines, or solar lentigines are a common problem in people over 40 but they may also appear in younger individuals. Age spots are flat, gray, brown or black spots caused by either age or sun exposure.

 

They often appear on the hands, face, back and feet. Although true age spots are harmless and do not require treatment, many people find them unsightly and opt to lighten age spots with skin-bleaching products or removed them through expensive laser treatments.

 

Best Natural Home Remedies to Get Rid of Age Spots

1. Vinegar is chemically acetic acid, and has whitening and brightening properties. It can also make your skin smoother and more radiant.

Dilute vinegar equally with water, and use it to cleanse and rinse your face. Allow to air-dry to seal in moisture.

Alternatively, use the vinegar mixture as an astringent or toner. Apple cider or other natural vinegars are recommended, though some people use distilled white vinegar.

 

 

 

2. Another best way to remove age spots is to use pure lemon juice as natural home remedy.

 

Rub fresh lemon juice onto the affected skin, twice a day – once in the morning and once before going to bed – and allow it to air-dry. Then, apply your regular skin moisturizer every day until age spots fade.

 

Be ware that lemon juice makes the skin photosensitive so make sure you protect your face and skin with sunscreen.

 

 

 

3. Milk and honey is also good to fade age spots naturally. You can use them alone or with other ingredients.

You can use sour milk or buttermilk, which both contain lactic acid. The lactic acid in milk has a gentle peeling effect which lightens skin without irritation.

Honey is known to have several skin renewing properties. You may want to heat honey before using it alone, or mixed with wheat germ for a greater lightening effect.

 

 

 

4. Prevention is better than cure. The best way to prevent age spots is to protect your skin from the sun.

Wearing a sunscreen with a minimum SFP of 15 or more, protective clothing, and limiting sun exposure will drastically reduce your chances of developing age spots as well as to prevent the ones that you already have on your face from getting darker.

 

 

 

5. In addition, drinking plenty of water, eating plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables, as well as getting regular exercise will help your body defend itself from free radicals, skin damage, and toxin build-up.

Health experts also recommend avoiding simple sugars, preservatives, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and trans fats.

 

 

 

Getting rid of age spots is simple but it is a multi-step process. The best way to remove age spots is to exfoliate, apply a natural home remedy to your skin, use an all-natural fading cream and eat a health diet.
