Do Natural Remedies Really Work In Getting Rid Of Brown Age Spots?

Did you know that those brown spots can be caused by the aging process? Those are brown age spots. Their appearance can be precipitated by cumulative exposure to ultraviolet rays. The sun's ultraviolet rays tend to stress out collagen and elastin fibers.

Our integumentary is not completely defenceless against the sun. It usually produces melanin to counteract the negative effects of ultraviolet rays. But as we get older, the excessive production of melanin becomes unreliable. This leads to the appearance of brown spots and uneven skin tone.

You can still get rid of brown age spots. But aside from lightening those spots up, you should also improve the health of your dermis. Spots appear faster because of weak and aging skin condition. Let me tell you a couple of tips that can work for you:

1. I suggest mixing the juices of different plant extracts. I am such a huge fan of plant extracts simply because they provide remarkable benefits and they do not cost a lot of money. They might not be the most convenient treatments but they really work in improving the condition of the skin.

You can try mixing papaya juice and licorice extract. They have skin whitening properties recognized by experts. You can find a number of whitening products incorporated with these natural ingredients. Combine the juries of these plants and apply it all over your skin or the areas affected. Let it stay there for about an hour before washing it off. Use this treatment twice a day for best results.

2. If your skin does not easily get irritated, you can try using natural AHA peelers. They come in the form of acids. They work in inhibiting the production of melanin, sloughing off dead skin cells and facilitating the renewal of dermis tissues.

One of the best forms of AHA is lemon juice. Apply the juice of lemon religiously on the affected areas. Let it stay there for about an hour before washing it off.

3. You can also find several moisturizing products that contain whitening ingredients. Choose Extrapone Nutgrass, CynergyTK and Phytessence Wakame. Extrapone Nutgrass is an ingredient that has lightening benefits. It can inhibit melanin by up to 45% during the first two weeks of use. It can continuously work on your skin to lighten up spots. It also has anti-irritant properties so you can heal inflamed skin.

CynergyTK is an ingredient that has been extracted from the wool of sheep. It is one of the best sources of keratin, the complex protein needed by the body for the production of collagen. It can maintain the youthful functions of the dermis. Phytessence Wakame is a kind of Japanese sea weed that can get rid of the harmful enzymes that attack hyaluronic acid. This acid is vital for collagen lubrication.

Natural remedies work. But make sure you give them time to lighten up those brown age spots. You also have to use them properly so you can see best results.
