It is definitely not suggested going for the medicinal or cosmetic treatments for the same because there are many natural and simple ingredients present in our vicinity which can be used at home as remedies to cure the problem. Below, I will try to make you aware about the home remedies for age spots which are safe and tested.
5 Home Remedies For Age Spots
Lemon Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar
Lemon acts as a natural bleach for any kind of skin tone. Apple cider vinegar will provide the lost nutrition to the affected skin. Mix equal proportion of both in a small bowl and apply on your clean face. Later wash off with cold water. Repeat this procedure twice a day for fast recovery. Do this regularly for one month for complete relief.
Buttermilk is acidic in nature and this particular property helps in removing the age spots. Take a clean cotton ball and soak it in cold buttermilk. Use this to apply the buttermilk on the affected areas of your body. Let it dry on your skin and later wipe off the affected areas with a cotton ball soaked in normal water. Do this on regular basis twice a day continuously for a month to observe the improvement within a few days.
Raw onion is rich in Vitamin C, which helps in lightening the skin spots. Take one onion and peel it off. Grind it into a smooth paste and apply it on the areas which are having age spots. Let it dry and then wash off with normal water. Do this twice a day continuously for about 20 days. You will be able to notice the minimization of the age spots simultaneously. However, you may also use onion juice in place of the paste and expect the same output.
Turmeric And Milk
Turmeric is one of the mostly used spices in India and has got many medicinal properties. Take 5 teaspoons of turmeric powder and mix it with adequate amount of milk to form a thick, smooth paste. Apply it on the affected areas making a thin layer and leave it intact for 30 minutes. Now scrub off the pack with wet fingers. Do this everyday once before going to bath for best effect. The output will be visible within a few days itself.
Orange Peel And Cumin Seeds
Do not throw away the skin of the orange this time. Dry them under the sun and grind it into fine paste. Preserve it in an air tight bottle for future use. Mix it with required amount of water to form a smooth paste. Apply this paste as a pack and let it dry. Meanwhile, take 1 teaspoon of whole cumin seed and boil it in 2 glasses of water. Later, when the face pack dries up, use the cumin water to wash off the pack. Do this everyday to get a clean skin sans age spot.
