Home Remedy for Age Spots

Age spots emerge over time for environmental and genetic reasons. You may notice them popping up on your face, hands, and body without any apparent pattern, rhyme or reason. At first you may turn to one of the many effective products on the market  that can help fade the appearance of those pesky age spots. Or you may skip the OTC products and go straight to your local dermatologist for medical grade skincare remedies. But have you considered other effective alternatives? Try this DIY recipe packed with anti-oxidant rich, PH-balancing grocery items to watch age spots fade naturally in the privacy of your own home.

Ingredients for DIY Age Spots Removal:

– 1 Onion
– Apple Cider Vinegar
– Cotton Balls

 

Directions:

– Finely chop an onion.
– Use cheesecloth or strainer to extract the juice.
– Mix one part onion juice with one part apple cider vinegar.

 

Application:

– Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture to age spots.
– Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes.
– Rinse the mixture off of your skin.
– Repeat once a day for at least six weeks.

 

Why it works: Onions are packed with vitamins A, C and E, which are powerful anti-oxidants and antiseptics. Onions also contain flavonoids, which boost the effectiveness of vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for keeping skin healthy, glowing and even toned thereby reducing hyperpigmentation such as age spots.

Apple cider vinegar contains powerful alpha hydroxy acids to help remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresher, healthier complexion underneath. The unique properties in apple cider vinegar help balance the skin’s PH and reduce the appearance of age spots.
