No matter how busy you are with your job, education and home, it is essential to pay a little attention to looking beautiful. Invest some time to look your best. Here are few easy tips to follow:
Regardless of your ethnic background or skin color, eventually most of us will develop some kind of brown or age spots. These age spots generally appear on exposed skin areas like the face, back, neck, chest, shoulders and hands. Here are some simple and natural remedies to ease out age spots.
We all know that the citric acid in lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent and exfoliates the skin, reducing the appearance of age spots. Simply dab fresh lemon juice directly onto the spots twice daily and you should begin to notice improvements in about two months.
Onions contain sulfur compounds that act as an antiseptic. They also contain acids that facilitate exfoliation. Simply slice up some onions and rub the slices over the affected area two or three times a day.
Aloe vera is commonly used to treat a number of skin ailments, including age spots. Simply rub a little fresh aloe vera gel (taken directly from the plant) onto the affected area and leave to soak in. As aloe vera is very gentle, there is no need to rinse it off. However, you may want to rinse it off if it starts to feel sticky.
Certain enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids present in papaya can help exfoliate your skin and reduce age spots, skin blemishes, acne and other skin problems. Cut the papaya into small chunks and press them into a pulp with a fork or potato masher. Apply the pulp to your age spots with your fingers, allowing the mask to sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. Use daily.
