How to Remove Brown Age Spots

It only takes “two” steps to lighten brown skin spots.
1. Protect the area from sunlight and
2. use a good anti-aging cream.

However, the best creams for removing age spots contain ingredients that do “three” different things.

They :
1. repair free radical damage,
2. inhibit melanin production and
3. increase the skin-cell turn-over rate.
Here’s your recipe for success.

Recipe for Fading Brown Age Spots

•Clothing or bandage
•Zinc oxide sun-block
•Anti-aging cream

Ingredients for the Cream:
•Coenzyme Q10
•Cyperus Rotundus Extract
•Functional Keratin

To be honest, the recipe for the cream is not something that you can whip up in your kitchen. Coenzyme Q10 molecules are normally too large to penetrate through all of the skin’s layers. So, they must be reduced in size.

Manufacturers of skincare products have access to “reduced” coenzyme Q10, as well as purified cyperus rotundus extract and functional keratin. So, if you want to lighten brown skin spots, the first step is actually to find a good cream that contains those three ingredients.

The clothing, bandages or sun-block are used to protect the area from sunlight. You could use the best cream available for removing age spots, but if you do not protect the area from sunlight, the damage will be redone.

The damage is done primarily by free radicals, which are molecules that naturally exist in all of the cells of the body. They perform some necessary functions in the cells, but sometimes, they get a little “crazy”.

UV rays from the sun and environmental toxins drive the radicals insane. They start to bounce around within the cells and they eventually damage membranes, fibers and cellular DNA. Antioxidants neutralize the radicals before they can do all of that damage. Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most potent antioxidants.

The sun does something else, too. It stimulates the production of melanin, which is what the spot is composed of. That’s why manufacturers of products designed to lighten brown skin spots include an ingredient that inhibits melanin production. Antioxidants and plant sterols, such as those found in avocado and Shea butter, work, too, but not as quickly. Cyperus rotundus extract is the safest and most effective solution for removing age spots by inhibiting melanin production.

Increasing the skin-cell turn-over rate is necessary to lighten brown skin spots, quickly. Functional Keratin is the only ingredient proven to stimulate the production of new cells by as much as 160% in as little as three days. If cyperus rotundus is included to inhibit melanin, the new cells will be lighter in color. So, the spot starts to fade.

You might say that dedication is necessary for fading brown age spots and preventing them from coming back. You have to be dedicated to protecting the skin’s health. The sun, cigarette smoke and environmental toxins are damaging to the skin’s health. Nourishing creams are good for it.

Just be sure that the cream you decide to buy is free of artificial preservatives and petroleum-based alcohols. Those ingredients can actually cause brown skin spots and other signs of aging.
