You'll know when it is time to begin age spot treatments when those dreadful darkening spots begin to sprout up all over your face with wild abandon.
Age spots are a clear sign of sun damaged and photoaged skin.
Specifically, age spots occur as a result of not enough sunscreen and too much sun.
Sun causes damage to healthy skin cells.
Cumulative sun exposure over the years promotes increased free radical activity which work to weaken and eventually destroy healthy skin cells.
This destructive cycle is what creates age spots and most other aging skin symptoms!
,In non-technical terms this essentially means that the years spent worshiping the sun and getting that glorious beautiful golden tan is coming back to haunt your skin, with a vengeance.
You can take action to stop and reverse the damage.
Frankly, there isn't a person on the face of the earth who wants younger looking skin that hasn't wished that they had been more careful about using sunscreen and protecting their skin from the sun throughout the years.
Along with adopting a proactive preventative approach for the future! (Sunscreen!)
Age spots usually appear gradually over time depending on skin type and sun worshiping habits they typically wait to materialize until those middle age years.
Although age spots can develop at any age, they are more apt to occur more quickly for those unlucky ones who have fair skin and tend to burn easily.
You erase them of course!
To remove stubborn age spots, use a clinically proven hyperpigmentation treatment such as:
For a less potentially skin irritating approach, many natural acids work quite well such as fruit acids from lemons, oranges, papaya and limes as well as lactic acids found in dairy products.
There are several natural anti-aging skin care recipes that you can make quickly and easily with ingredients you already have at home that work wonderfully to remove age spots as well as to rejuvenate your overall skin's health:
Or simply cut a lemon or orange in half and gently rub it on the age spots. Dipping the fruit in sugar first will add natural glycolic acid while also providing your skin with quick exfoliation treatment.
Combining natural treatments along with a stronger AHA (glycolic acid) and an over-the-counter bleaching cream is an excellent strategy for a very potent hyperpigmentation treatment.
Be very, very careful though, this particular combination can be quite
irritating to the skin causing dryness, redness, and flakiness.
Adding an occasional deep exfoliation treatment such as microdermabrasion, or chemical peels are also considered to be very effective, particularly when used in combination with one of the skin bleaching agents.
And you already know what that means. . .
using sunscreen on a daily basis and avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun.
