Lightening Age Spots

9 Mar

This question came in to us from one of our lovely Mother of the Brides. She was concerned with a few age spots on her hands and shoulder area and asked us for a few tips on possibly covering and/or lightening them to reduce their appearance and presence in her daughters Bridal photos.

Here are a few quick and easy at-home tips you can try out, that for many help to reduce the tones and lighten age spots:

To lighten age spots and sun-damaged skin you can mix the juice of 1 lemon, 1 lime,  approx. 2 tablespoons of honey and around 2 ounces of plain yogurt.

Gently massage mixture on to each spot.  Or you can coat the area and leave sit for about 30 minutes, then wash it off. Use at least once or twice a week. Gradually most individuals will see an improvement as these items have a natural bleaching effect to them.

Another option is that of  a onion juice and apple cider vinegar mixture. Castor oil has also shown to improve the appearance of age spots.

Good luck!
