Erasing Age Spots

There are numerous ways of erasing age spots. Finding an age spot remover can be quite a hectic process, bearing in mind that there are different types of removers for different types of skins. The removers are of many types but one sure method that will go a long way in promoting removal of age spots is first avoiding excessive exposure of the skin to sunlight since it is the main cause of the age spots. After all they say prevention is better than cure.

The first and most common way of erasing age spots is lemon juice. Lemon juice is good as it acts as a sterilizer and also as a skin toner. It is preferred because it has no side effects to the skin. However, for those with sensitive skin, it is advisable to use mild lemon juice. This does not cause irritation and also removes age spots.

Aloe vera gel is also good in erasing age spots. This gel is known for its many therapeutic properties. When removing age spots, this gel is applied directly onto the skin and left there for about 15 to 20 minutes. It is then washed off using cold water.

Castor oil can also be used in erasing age spots. Its application results in a more evenly pigmented skin, thus reducing the age spots. It is recommended that it is applied on the affected area before going to bed and removed after waking up. It is advisable to use sweet smelling or odorless castor oil as some may have a not so pleasant smell.

Sour milk is also very good in erasing age spots. The lactic acid present in the milk helps promote gentle peeling of the skin without dryness or irritation. It also helps in lightening the skin pigmentation. A thick mask of sour cream or buttermilk may be applied to the skin on the area with the age spots.

Hydrogen peroxide is another good method of erasing age spots. It does this by bleaching the age spots. When used well, it is very effective in removing age spots.

Laser treatment can also work very well in erasing age spots though it is a bit expensive compared to any other age spot remover. However, this is preferred because of its good results obtained and the high chances of success.

Liquid nitrogen is also very good in erasing age spots. It freezes the age 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.

Be warned! It is very important that when using any age spot remover 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.
