Getting older can come with a lot of changes to our minds and bodies. Follow this advice, and you’ll age with grace!
1. GET AN ALOE VERA PLANT.
Rubbing the juice from an aloe vera leaf over age spots twice a day can help fade and prevent them. Aloe impedes the enzyme that creates melanin in the skin.
3. USE SUNSCREEN ALL YEAR
The more you cover splotchy areas with sunscreen, the faster spot-lightening remedies work. Using sunscreen year-round also blocks new blotches from popping up. That’s because age spots aren’t caused by age. The offender is overexposed to the sun, which results in uneven production of melanin, the pigment that causes tanning.
5. APPLY PERFUME WISELY.
Some perfume ingredients, including musk, bergamot, and sandalwood oil-interact with sunlight, making skin blotches worse. So try spritzing perfume under your clothes, where sunlight can’t reach.
2. USE A CARROT CREAM.
People who put on beta carotene-rich carrot oil on their skin each night see improvements in their age spots within eight weeks. Beta-carotene saturates the color-producing cells of the skin, preventing them from overproducing pigment.
4. MAKE A YOGURT MASK.
The lactic acid in yogurt gently exfoliates and lightens the skin. Twice a week, apply 1 Tbs. of plain yogurt to problem areas on your face, neck, and hands. Leave it on for 20 -30 minutes, then rinse.
6. USE MUSHROOM EXTRACT.
Most lighteners fade undesired pigmentation by blocking the production of melanin-the pigment that causes darkening deep within the skin. But new sun exposure or irritation can re-trigger melanin production, re-darkening the spots. Try this unique mushroom-derived enzyme, Melanozyme. Unlike other lightening ingredients, the enzyme is safe for sensitive skin.
