Fading Sun Spots, Liver Spots, Age Spots and Other Skin Blemishes: Introduction

Everybody wants perfect, flawless skin. I know I do! Unfortunately, various environmental factors - such as lifestyle stress or ultraviolet (UV) damage from the hot sun's rays - can cause our skin to be marked with blemishes, sun spots, liver spots and other dark spots that detract from what we feel is true beauty. Often times, such skin spots can make us appear older than we really are! Thankfully, there are a variety of methods that an individual can take to fade skin spots and get that perfect, spotless skin that they want. Learn how to fade brown skin spots, sun spots and even acne marks quickly. Your friends and family will be impressed by your perfect, smooth skin and will wonder what your skin care secrets are!

Understand What Causes Brown, Dark Skin Spots and Other Blemishes

Those tiny, brown skin spots that show up on your face, cheekbones, neck, hands and arms are usually caused by the aging effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. These UV rays release free radicals in your skin, quickly causing internal damage that results in liver spots, blemishes and even wrinkles. Over time, this ultraviolet damage builds up in our skin. Thus, skin spots and skin blemishes are often connected with aging. In fact, fading skin spots can be an effective way to make yourself look younger and more youthful!

Vitamin B Can Help Keep Skin Youthful

Simple Steps to Fade Brown Skin Spots for Perfect, Flawless Skin

To start, stop brown skin spots from appearing on your skin from the very beginning. Prevention is key when it comes to aging, as there is only so much that anti-aging products and creams can do.

Apply generous amounts of high-end sunscreen that is specifically formulated to protect your skin from the aging effects of the sun. You may pay a little extra for premium sunscreen, but the results are usually worth the premium price. Many of these premium sunscreens also contain ingredients designed to minimize wrinkles and skin spots and help fade any sun spots that you may already have. Wear sunscreen anytime you are exposed to the sun, and limit your exposure to the sun as much as possible.

Fade skin spots using all-natural ingredients and skin care methods. Try dipping a cotton swab in fresh, 100% pure lemon juice. Gently rub the cotton on any areas that you experience skin spots, liver spots and wish to fade brown spots. The natural acids in lemon juice can help to slowly and naturally bleach and fade dark skin blemishes to reveal perfect, beautiful skin. A side bonus is that lemon juice is high in vitamin C, a natural antioxidant that may boost the health of your skin.

An additional, helpful natural method for fading skin spots caused by sun damage is using a combination of apple cider vinegar, horseradish root and lemon juice. Mix is together and rub it onto your sun spots with a cotton Q-tip. This boosts the cell turnover rates of your skin spots and helps to fade them quickly.

You may also want to consider exfoliating. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin to reveal newer skin below. Over time, this can help to fade brown skin spots (especially when combined with other methods of fading skin blemishes).

Use anti-aging creams and anti-aging serums, such as Olay Regenerist, which I use daily because its vitamin B complex keeps skin youthful. Such products moisturize skin and keep your skin cells hydrated while also applying specialized chemicals that help smooth away wrinkles, fade sun spots and brown spots, and shrink pores. The end result is clearer, more perfect skin.
