But what about the sunburns you got when you were younger, and either didn’t know or, let’s be honest, didn’t care?
Is it possible to fade the sunspots that are on your skin?
The answer is yes! Absolutely!
And it doesn’t even require peels, or chemicals, or anything that has to be done in an office.
These ways to help fade your sunspots can be done right at home, with all natural ingredients that you may already have.
What You’re Reversing
The reason that sun exposure ages you is because it slows the production of collagen and elastin.
These are the two proteins that keep your skin firm, tight, and supple, bouncing back day after day.
As you age, your body stops making as much collagen naturally – and sun exposure slows it even further.
The sun also slows the natural exfoliation of your skin. The dead skin cells don’t slough off as readily, and the new skin cells don’t grow in as quickly.
And sun causes permanent discoloration – known as sun or age spots – that can make you look far older than you really are.
Unfortunately, the impact is cumulative, so you have years of days in the sun to reverse. Luckily, you also have these ten ways to do it.
1. Aloe Vera. The malic acid in aloe vera improves skin elasticity to reduce wrinkles. Its zinc helps shrink pores to keep skin looking younger. And aloe vera helps form collagen, to fade sunspots. This versatile plant still isn’t done. It helps moisturize, but won’t cause breakouts because it reduces excessive oils in the skin. Scrape the gel from a leaf of the plant – or buy 100% aloe gel at the store – and apply to clean skin, by massaging in a circular motion for five minutes. Let sit for twenty minutes. Wash face as usual.
2. Avocado. If you want smooth, creamy skin, reach for this smooth, creamy fruit. All the nutrients – the vitamins B, C, E, and K, the selenium, potassium, and more – that make avocado so good for your health make it equally as good for your skin and diminshing sunspots! Not only does avocado moisturize, it repairs old, aging skin and encourages new skin cell growth, all while helping flush toxins from the cells. Mash the flesh of one whole avocado until it’s paste. Apply to clean skin, and leave on for thirty minutes. Wash as usual.
3. Bananas. What does your skin need? Hydration? More collagen? Better elasticity? How about all of the above? Plus, fighting free radicals to further fade sunspots? Because the potassium, and vitamins B, C, and E deliver all that, and more. Mash two ripe bananas into a creamy paste. Apply as a mask onto clean skin, and leave for thirty minutes. Wash and moisturize as usual.
4. Egg whites. This classic face mask is classic for a reason. Egg whites tighten skin and shrink pores, so skin looks smoother. The proteins, magnesium, potassium, and riboflavin in egg whites support tissue repair and help fade sunspots. Just separate the whites from the yolk, then apply only the white to clean skin. Let dry and sit for fifteen minutes. Rinse with water.
5. Honey. If there’s a single, natural way to fade sunspots that’s even better than banana, it’s honey. Honey keeps skin hydrated…exfoliates to minimize sun spots…promotes new skin cell growth…AND keeps skin elastic, so it bounces back. Apply one teaspoon of organic honey to clean face, using a circular motion. Let it sit for twenty minutes, then wash as usual.
6. Lemon juice. Don’t be afraid of the citric acid in lemon juice. It’s perfect for reducing sunspots and other signs of aging! First, lemon juice is an exfoliant, so fresh skin can be revealed. But then it also acts as a toner and shrinks pores, so skin looks smoother. It increases skin’s elasticity, and it’s still not done. Lemon juice also gives skin a youthful glow. So squeeze the juice of one lemon and dab it on with a cotton ball. Leave it for thirty minutes, then wash as usual.
7. Olive oil. If you haven’t started using olive oil on your skin yet, you’re missing out. Not only is it a deep moisturizer, but it’s packed with vitamins A and E, powerful antioxidants that counter the effects of free radicals, beat back oxidative stress, and practically turn back the hands of time. Simply massage organic, pure olive oil into your face and neck for about five minutes before bed. Wash your face as usual as part of your morning routine.
8. Pineapples. Since pineapples are loaded with antioxidants, they are excellent at fading sunspots and minimizing signs of aging. Put ½ c pineapple in a blender until you have a paste. Massage into your neck and face, then leave for twenty minutes. Wash as usual, making sure to use warm water.
9. Yogurt. You probably didn’t realize that your favorite mid-day snack could also help fade sunspots, did you? And it does so on many levels. Yogurt can exfoliate and moisturize, smooth out blotchiness and discoloration, dissolve dead skin, and tighten pores – all combining to give you a clean, glowing complexion. Be sure to use organic, plain yogurt. No fruit, and no flavor. Apply as a mask to clean skin. Leave the yogurt in place for twenty to thirty minutes, then wash as usual.
