Creams For Age Spots Removal

There are many modern methods used to remove age spots and all of them have their benefits and associated risks. The use of cosmetic creams therefore appears to be one of the safest ways to get rid of unsightly age spots. The case for cosmetic creams is sometimes not that strong, especially with synthetic skin care creams. The only solution to enjoy the benefits of creams without risking skin health is therefore going organic.

Contrary to what the name suggests age spots are totally unrelated to the age of a person. The main culprit for the formation of the spots is ultraviolet radiation. The most common source of this radiation is the sun. The ultraviolet light causes skin cells to produce more pigment in order to protect inner layers from damage. As a result, age spots mostly occur on areas of skin exposed to the sun frequently such as legs, the face and neck. The damage caused by overexposure to the sun doesn’t show until a person is well beyond the age of 40. This explains the reason behind the naming of the condition.

Treating the condition naturally has been shown to be just as effective as other treatment methods. It also comes with the benefit of reduced risks. Natural treatment creams usually contain a substance called hydroquinone. This compound occurs naturally and is effective in making age spots disappear. One of the few places on earth where this substance is not available in cosmetic products is Europe. It was banned after a study showed that it could cause leukemia in animals. No study has shown a relationship between the compound and leukemia in human beings.

Many artificial skin lightening creams have at least one harmful substance that can lead to serious health conditions. The most widely known chemicals that have been proven to be harmful to peoples’ health are mercury chloride and ammoniated mercury. Creams containing these two substances were very popular until recently when the negative effects were discovered.

The effectiveness of natural compounds in reducing melanin content on skin is still very good compared to artificial chemicals. One component that has been found to be particularly effective is nutgrass root extract. It has been shown to reduce skin pigmentation by as much as 40%. There are many other natural compounds that have been proven to reduce skin pigmentation. The best natural creams for age spot removal combine two or more of these compounds to give stunning results. The result of this method of treating age spots is also guilt-free.
