Removing age spots can be frustrating. Unless the production of melanin is stopped, the blemishes cannot be completely removed. You have to look for remedies that can really work deeper in your skin.
Natural remedies have a way of inhibiting melanin production. What is great about them is that they are not as expensive as cosmetic treatments. Moreover, they do a great job of naturally lessening the spots and lightening up the skin tone.
1. Lemon juice
Using lemon juice is an old remedy that has often been used to treat scars, pimple marks and any kind of dark blemishes. It works mainly by lessening the production of melanin. It also contains citric acid, a kind of AHA or alpha hydroxy acid. AHA facilitates a mild peeling action. It sloughs off dead skin cells and gets rid of damaged skin tissues. It encourages the renewal of healthier and whiter dermis tissues.
But when you are using this treatment, make sure your skin is not directly exposed to the sun. Citric acid can make your skin photosensitive.
2. Apple cider vinegar
This vinegar is made up of three kinds of acids. However, it is mostly loaded with malic acid, another form of AHA peeler. Just like citric acid, it can slough off dead skin cells and facilitate renewal of dermis tissues.
Avoid using this treatment in full concentration. Dilute it in water first to lessen the acidity. You can also mix it up with hydrating ingredients such as honey.
3. Avocado oil
The natural extract of Avocado has Vitamin E, Vitamin A and linoleic acid. These vitamins can prevent the future appearance of age spots. They can even protect your skin from rapid skin aging. Linoleic acid has the ability to repair and connect damaged skin tissues. This can also hydrate your skin so you can have softer and smoother dermis tissues and cells.
These treatments will work better when matched with a reliable lightening moisturizer. Look for a whitening cream that has been incorporated with Extrapone Nutgrass, Phytessence Wakame and Maracuja.
Extrapone Nutgrass is a special kind of plant with bleaching properties. It can inhibit melanin production by up to 45% during the first two weeks of use. It even has emollient properties that can improve skin hydration.
Phytessence Wakame primarily gets rid of the harmful enzymes that attack hyaluronic acid. This acid is vital for collagen lubrication. Maracuja is a kind of passion fruit that has lubricating properties similar to human skin. It can retain moisture in dermis tissues.
With the help of these top natural remedies, you can erase age spots. You just have to use them correctly to see positive results.
