Who said you can’t age gracefully and beautifully? Thanks to our easy skin care tips and sun spot solutions, you can learn how to easily lighten skin spots for a youthful, flawless complexion.
As women age, spots appear on the face, arms and shoulders. These spots are usually called age spots. But these spots are not directly connected with ones chronological age. These spots are caused by over exposure to the sun. Many women are concerned with these spots not for health concerns but because they are not nice to look. But removing skin spots should not be a big problem because there are several ways to do this. To help you with this concern, here are easy ways to lighten skin spots.
An easy and generally sure way to remove skin spots is through laser treatment. Laser treatments are done by experts to ensure safety. Though it is a guaranteed way to lighten skin spots they are not necessarily cheap. You need to spend hundreds of dollars for one laser treatment session. And usually you would need two or more sessions to free yourself of these unsightly spots.
Another easy way to remove skin spots is through cryosurgery. This surgery involves freezing to remove abnormal skin cells. It is a quick procedure and you could see results immediately. However, like laser treatment procedures, cryosurgery also involves a lot of money. You also need to spend hundred of dollars for this treatment.
Chemical peeling can also be used to lighten age spots. It involves the application of chemical solutions to the surface of the skin. Skin peeling requires a little downtime but it is still manageable. It is cheaper than surgical procedures but it still requires you to spend some money.
Another way to get rid of these spots is to do what they call microdermabrasion. This procedure involves the application of creams that contain abrasive particulates to ‘sand’ the skin. What is nice about this procedure is that this not only targets the spots but the entire skin surface as well. It rejuvenates the surface of the skin. Compared to the other procedures mentioned above, this is generally cheaper.
A much cheaper way is to use creams that contain bleaching agents. These creams unfortunately lighten the surrounding skin as well so the spots remain visible. There are also soaps that contain abrasives. They also peel dead and other unwanted skin cells.
But you do not need to really spend too much to get rid of these unwanted age spots. There are also home remedies that you can do that will only require you spend very little to almost nothing at all. Here are some of them.
You can use orange peelings to remove age spots. All you need to do is to collect orange peelings and dry them under the sun. Keep them under the sun until they are fully dried. After they have fully dried, grind them to make fine powder. Mix this with milk to make a paste. Apply this to the skin. Remove the paste only after it has dried up. Remove it using lukewarm water. Since this is natural, you will not feel any side effects.
Another home remedy is to use lemon essential oil and buttermilk. Just combine buttermilk with lemon essential oil. Mix three drops of lemon essential oil with a tablespoon of buttermilk. Dab this mixture on the affected skin part daily.
Age spots are not usually medical problems. So if you just want to lighten skin spots choose those methods that are affordable.
