In this article I am going to go deeper in the explanation of these spots, and give some good home remedies that will get rid of them the quick and natural way. Read this article and you will learn how to get rid of age spots naturally.

The scientific name for a brown age spot is solar lentigines, or liver spots. This is one of the ways that our skin tells us that it has seen better days.These age spots can also appear because of an increased melanin production from the sun, which is linked with aging.

How to get rid of age spots:

There are several ways to get rid of age spots. The best way to get rid of age spots is the natural way. This way leaves no side effects, and is the most affordable. Bleaching creams can get expensive and take a long time to go into effect, and the cost of s dermatologists can get costly.

Natural way:

1) One of the natural ways to get rid of these spots is to apply a little lemon juice to your spots every morning before your day moisturizer, and at bed before your evening night cream. Applying this twice a day is very important and is the most effective, and results will be given in 14 days.The best way to apply the lemon juice is with a cotton ball.

For a de-aging natural scrub:

You can also apply a little lemon juice to a cotton round with a teaspoon of sugar, and exfoliate your face with this mixture instead of just applying the lemon juice to your face.

2) Another alternative fruit is Pineapple. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which is a bleaching agent perfect for age spots. You can use pineapple instead of lemon juice; just rub the spots with a sliced piece of pineapple; let the skin dry; and apply your moisturizer.

3) Aloe Vera contains ingredients that remove dead skin cells and promote growth of new, healthy cells. Apply aloe Vera twice daily under your day and evening moisturizer.
