 Easy Ways to Fade Dark Spots on Your Face and Skin

As your age increases, you will notice that the effect of wrinkles in making you look much older. There are other determinants that can make to your appearance look older. Dark spots on your face and skin is one of these culprits.

There are home remedies and organic products that work effectively in fading or permanently removing dark spots. I will be sharing with you the popular and well known treatments.

A. Organic or Natural Dark Spot Removals on the Face and Skin

1. Lemon Juice
This is the most common remedy. Note that lime is different from lemon as people mistaken it for each other. The acidity of lemon is high and thus acts like a bleaching agent. It helps in fading and reducing the discoloration.
In treating facial spots, use a cotton ball to apply the juice on the spots twice a day. It is a good idea to test it, put first on a small region of your face and see your skin reaction to the lemon. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with little water.

2. Aloe Vera
 Aloe Vera is a rich source of vitamins A, C, and, E, which help in reducing brown and black spots. It evens out skin tone.
Aloe works especially well if you have dark spots caused by sun exposure because the plant has been used for thousands of years to relieve sunburns.
100% Aloe Vera gel is available at health food store, but I prefer using the gel directly from the plant. Cut a piece of the aloe Vera leaf and split it into half. Press and squeeze out the jelly-like substance and apply directly on your skin. Aloe Vera gel is also very good in treating liver spots also known as age spot.
3. Yogurt or Buttermilk
They both contain adequate amounts of lactic acid. Lactic acids help fade, lighten and exfoliates the face and body skin. Apply yogurt or buttermilk directly on your face like a mask. Leave it on for about 30 minutes and washing it off with warm water.

2. Retinoid
It is potent form of vitamin A. It encourages rapid cell-turnover. It also works by shedding the outermost layer of epidermis and improves cell regeneration. Retinoid also reduces the production of melanin in the skin. Of melanin is the pigment your skin produces that encourages dark spots.
3. Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid lightens dark brown, and age spots. It softens the skin resulting in skin peeling. Salicylic acid is commonly used to treat acne; however, it can also be used to lighten dark spots. It helps remove dead skin cells and encourage new cells production.
4. Glycolic Acid
It is an AHA (alpha hydroxyl acid) that is derived from sugar. It works as a natural exfoliator as it sloughs off dead skin cell and promotes the growth of new skin cells. Dermatologists suggest using a product with at least 10% glycolic acid.
5. Other Medical Treatments like Chemical peels, microderm abrasion, and laser therapy
If you have the money and you want fast results, you can go for Chemical peels, microderm abrasion, and laser therapy. Chemical peel and microderm abrasion helps in promoting skin regeneration by removing the topmost skin layer. Laser therapy makes use of different types of lasers to reduce accumulated melanin on a certain area of the skin. It is important to consult your doctor to ask about which treatment is best for your skin type.
