One of the most prominent causes of age spots is exposure to sunlight and therefore UV radiation. People who expose their skin to more sunlight will have more melanin in their skins. Melanin is a natural reaction of the skin to sunlight and it will cause your skin to go darker. These dark spots aren’t dangerous in themselves, but if they go very dark or reddish, then it might be wise to consult a doctor.
Consult your doctor if
– Some spots grow darker than others;
– A dark circle forms around one or more spots;
– The spots keep growing;
– The spots are starting to turn red.
If one of these four points apply to you, please contact a dermatologist or physician. If your age spots are benign, then continue reading to learn some tricks to lighten them and watch the video at the bottom of the page.
Yes, that’s right: onions! This common ingredient is great at reducing scars and pigmentation. Onions contain antioxidants which affect the upper layers of your skin. The juice of an onion will penetrate the upper layer of your skin and help with pigmentation issues. Moreover, apple cider vinegar is also great to treat your age spots. Apple cider vinegar will remove dead skin cells. Use these two ingredients to make an amazing skincare potion for even skin.
How to make your anti-age spots mixture:
Remove the skin from the onion and cut it into pieces. Put the pieces of onion with half a cup of apple cider vinegar in a blender and blend until smooth. Use a clean cotton rag or some cotton rounds to spread it on your age spots. Let it sit for a little while and rinse off. Repeat daily.
It’s important to apply this mixture daily, otherwise you won’t see any progress. As is with most things in life, it’s better to prevent than to cure. Therefore, try to stay out of the sun and wear protective clothing. Always use sunscreen when going in the sun! This way you’ll prevent most age spots, not to mention skin cancer due to harmful UV radiation. Watch the video below for more information.
