Dark Spots Removal

Dark spots are caused by various aspects. This could be just the natural aging process or prolonged exposure to the sun. The sun’s ultraviolet radiation is believed to be the main cause of these spots. Here are some ways of removing these spots.

Lemon juice is a very effective method, commonly used in dark spots removal. It works very effectively when mixed with sugar since it acts as a skin sterilizer and doubles up as a toner. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which is a natural bleaching agent. For those with sensitive skin, mild lemon juice or the juice mixed with honey will work well without irritation.

Glycolic facials are also very effective when it comes to dark spots removal. The glycolic acid that is applied helps in peeling off the outer skin layer and removing the dead skin cells hence aids in removing dark spots.

Aloe vera gel is also good in dark spots removal. This gel is known for its many therapeutic properties. When removing dark spots, this gel is applied directly onto the skin and left there for about 20 to 30 minutes and then washed off using cold water.

Vitamin A and E capsules are also good in dark spots removal. The capsules are broken, and the powder is made into a paste. This paste is the one that is applied to the dark spots and left for about 25 to 30 minutes. The paste is then rinsed using cold water and the process repeated daily for a few weeks. Slow but sure improvement should be noticed. These vitamins replenish the skin and remove the spots without side effects.

Liquid nitrogen is also very good in dark spots removal. It freezes the dark spots and peels off like a chemical peel. This method can sting, or leave white marks where the spots were so it’s advisable to talk to a doctor before attempting to apply liquid nitrogen.

If home and salon dark spots removal methods prove ineffective in removing the dark spots, then laser therapy can be used. In this therapy, the affected skin is subjected to a beam of light, which enters the skin and destroys the cells that cause such spotting. Although laser therapy can be expensive, it is very effective since it can completely remove the dark spots from the skin.

Be warned! It is very important that when using any dark spots removal method that involves applying gels or juices to the skin, ensure that the juices do not come to contact with the eyes or other sensitive organs as some of them are acidic and may result in irritation. Also, consistency is very much encouraged since it ensures that the results obtained are very fast.
