19 Natural Remedies to Lighten Age Spots!
Our skin changes with age, and one of its signs comes in the form of small brownish-colored lesions. They are often called liver spots, despite the fact that they have no relation to a liver disorder. These spots are painless and usually appear on the neck, forehead, face, back, hands and feet. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, age spots are formed due to prolonged exposure to the sun or battles with disease or sickness.
While there are many clinical medications for treating age spots, these methods can be harsh, and may be detrimental to our health in other ways. Natural home remedies, however, tend to work just as well on age spots (without the side effects). But it is important to bear in mind that removing them completely will take time. Nevertheless, removing age spots is nothing near impossible – there are a number of ways to treat them and help diminish their appearance. Here is a series of home remedies to eliminate these blemishes from your skin:
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon is frequently found in bleaching creams – the citric acid and antioxidants found in its juice are what make it an effective remedy. Simply apply a squeeze of lemon juice twice a day for six to eight weeks.
2. Onion and Apple Cider Vinegar
Blend an onion and leave a few minutes to drain. Add an equal amount of apple cider vinegar and apply over the spots, using a cotton swab. Expect to see improved results within 5 to 6 months.
3. Castor Oil
If your age spots appear to be rough in texture, apply castor oil twice a day for a couple of months. You will notice a distinct improvement in the appearance and texture of the spots.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar
Add a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. You may also add some honey to better the taste. Alternatively, you may add a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar to lemon juice, and apply the mixture directly on the spots, as opposed to consuming it.
5. Aloe Vera
This miraculous herb has been shown to have tremendous potential in treating dermatological conditions like burns and scars. The gel or juice from Aloe Vera can be directly rubbed onto the age spots. It also stimulates the growth of new skin to replace old, dead cells, rejuvenating the appearance of your face and skin.

யாம் பெற்ற இன்பம் பெருக வையகம்
பெற்றதாய்தனை மகமறந்தாலும் பிள்ளையைப் பெறுந்தாய் மறந்தாலும்
உற்ற தேகத்தை உயிர்ம றந்தாலும் உயிரை மேவிய உடல் மறந்தாலும்
கற்றநெஞ்சம் கலைமறந்தாலும் கண்கள்நின் றிமைப்பது மறந்தாலும்
நற்றவத்தவர் உள்ளிருந்தோங்கும் நமச்சிவாயத்தை நான்மற வேனே.
