She noticed age spots on her hands, then removed them with two natural ingredients
Age spots, or what people also call "Liver spots" appear as brown or black dots on the skin. They can be of different sizes. They appear mainly on the hands, shoulders, face and arms because these are areas that are exposed to the sun.
The appearance of these spots is mostly in people over the age of 50, but even young adults have them if they are exposed to the sun too much.
What causes age spots?
As we mentioned, they appear mainly because of sun exposure. They can appear if you use sun beds. The pigment that gives our skin the color is called Melanin. It is located in the upper layer of the skin.
When ultraviolet light touches our skin, melanin production becomes faster and creates a kind of tanning that is supposed to protect our deep skin layers so that they do not get damaged from the UV rays.
The most exposed areas will be covered with liver stains because the pigment is produced in large quantities.
Protect your skin from the sun so that you can protect yourself from these spots.
The spots can appear in anyone, but they appear mostly on people with bright skin and those who burn easily in the sun.
Still, these spots are not dangerous. If you notice that they are changing the color or shape, you should see an expert, because in such cases it can be an indication of Melanoma (skin cancer). Here are some of the changes you should pay attention to:
- Their border seems to change
- Dark pigment
- Redness, sensitivity, expulsion or bleeding of the spots
- Their size is growing rapidly
- Unusual color combinations
A home remedy for age spots
You can treat age spots with laser treatments, ointments and chemical peeling. But we will now show you a completely natural way.
This recipe was recommended by Dr. Doug Willen, author of Quantum Paleo, and contains a combination of 2 natural ingredients: Onion juice and Apple cider vinegar, an antioxidant-rich onion that can kill free radicals in the body.
Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxy acids that can remove dead skin cells and help the skin's health beneath the surface. Many people use this method and say it's a great solution. It will give a wonderful shine to your skin.
Preparation and use:
Take one fresh onion, cut into slices and then crush them. When it becomes liquid, combine it with the apple cider vinegar and mix well in a blender until you get a uniform texture. Apply on the age spots with cotton ball. Make sure that the apple cider vinegar you use is unfiltered and organic. And don't forget to apply sunscreen!
