How to Rid Yourself of Age Spots

Although they look similar to moles, they are in fact very different. Moles are genetically predetermined, while age spots are the results of cumulative sun exposure. If you have age spots, you may be more at risk of developing skin cancer so see your doctor if they start changing color or shape. Here are some options for minimizing the appearance of age spots. All are home remedies.

Lemon Juice, contains citric acid, and is a natural skin bleaching agent. To fade your age spots, apply lemon juice over them, leaving for fifteen minutes every day for two months. The age spots should eventually fade away.

Aloe Vera juice,   is well known for its skin enhancing properties so simply rub the affected skin everyday with Aloe Vera juice, this will not only help reduce the age spots but is a good cleansing media. Aloe Vera plants can be purchased from garden centers and thrive better in warm but shaded areas

Horseradish believe it or not, is a wonderful herb that has many, many uses including fading freckles and age spots.

Method:

Grate 1 piece of horseradish (about four inches long).

Mix in ¼ cup cider vinegar.

Let mixture sit for 2 weeks, shaking daily.

Strain into small container and store in refrigerator.

Apply small amounts to spots 3 times daily

You should see a difference within two months

Overall precaution is that they are for external use only, and if your skin has a reaction, discontinue use immediately.

Some over the counter products on the market claiming to fade age spots in a short time are:

30 Glycolic Fade Away Skin Lightening Cream,

Civant Skin Care and  Meladerm

Finally good skin care is always helpful for those in the sun daily and not just for the ladies, all you handsome men out there, if you want to keep hearing those ego trip words “hello sexy man”, then good skin must come from daily care habits.

Skin cleanliness is a must as most skin infections like black heads, pimples are due to dirty and oily skin. Good sleeping and eating habits particularly good for skin care especially if you are stress free.

Cleansing and moisturizing creams are especially good for the beer drinkers among us, in fact all alcohol drinkers should moisturize, as alcohol dries up the skin.

Just a daily 5/10 minutes of care everyday, then you can get out there and enjoy the sun.
