Age spots, those brown flat spots on your skin might be popping up more often. As you get older, the sun damage you have accumulated over the years is starting to show on your skin. This can be a beauty issue.
“Genetics play a role in age spots too,” Dr. Richard Honaker, our Chief Medical Officer, explained. “People who have a history of age spots get age spots too.”
However, there are a number of DIY home remedies you employ to battle these age spots. Let’s dive right in and talk about a few.
DIY Natural Home Remedies For Age Spots
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy for a number of medical issues. It contains alpha hydroxy acids, which are excellent natural skin exfoliator.
This can be used for those age spots that are popping up. Put a dab of apple cider vinegar on age spots to help lighten them. You can do this before bed.
Yogurt is another great DIY home remedy you can use to clear up some of those age spots. The reason for this is that yogurt contains lactic acid and bleaching properties.
To employ this natural home remedy, mix a spoon full of yogurt, two spoons of oatmeal (grounded), a small spoon of lime-juice, and a little cold water. Apply to your age spots for 30 minutes and then rinse.
Tomatoes have been a natural remedy for a number of health issues, including beauty problems. The reason tomatoes work so well for age spots is that they contain antioxidants and bleaching properties.
This is an easy DIY natural remedy to employ too. Just cut up a nice ripe red tomato and rub over your age spots. You can leave it there for about 20 minutes and then rinse off.
