No one likes to get old. It’s already bad enough knowing that age is taking you over day by day, but when your experience and wisdom begins to show on your face, it already feels like your life is over. That first wrinkle is something every person, man or woman, dreads. Is there anything you can actually do?
Yes there is! There are plenty of home remedies that will help you remove those dreaded age spots. These tips and tricks are all natural and will vary depending on the amount of age spots, the shade of the spots and your skin tone. The lighter your skin is, the more harmless most remedies will be. However, if your skin is darker, then fading age spots may leave a skin discoloration. So just make sure to do your research before jumping head first into anything.
The first thing you need to do is think about prevention. Stay out of the sun during the middle of the day whenever its bright rays are at their strongest. If you have to endure the sun, then cover up and rub yourself up with some sunblock.
You are what you eat! Always keep in mind that your diet can be directly related to how your skin appears. Healthy is always better. Incorporate fruits and vegetables into your meals as much as possible and always keep in mind that fresh is healthier than processed and preserved. Avoid the sugars and caffeine to give your skin a boost, and just feel better in general.
Direct Vitamin E oil and castor oil are great for discoloration of the skin. You can buy some capsules, and just break open the capsules and apply directly to your skin. Aloe vera is great for treating burns, freckles and scars. That being said, it is also good for age spots. Just rub on some aloe vera gel onto your blemishes twice a day.
Other natural ingredients that have been known to remove age spots are lemon juice, onion juice, and apple cidar vinegar. Even though it’s not good for your body, buttermilk is great for your skin. The lactaid acid in it is known to exfoliate the skin damaged by the sun.
Before you pull out your pocket book for over the counter creams, check your cabinets and pantries to see if there is a more eco-friendly way to help your skin. If you’re rubbing it on your face, it’s always better that it comes from a plant or tree first. Stay out of the sun and don’t forget your sun protection.
