Age Spots Home Treatment - Home Remedies to Get Rid of Age Spots

If you are looking for home remedies to get rid of age spots then you are going to want to read this article. I know irritating it can be to try remedy after remedy and still fail to remove the brown spots on your skin. After months of trying many age spots home treatments, I finally stumbled upon a solution that worked. And it is this solution that I will be sharing with you today.

Before I reveal this solution, I want to share with you other age spots home remedies, or rather techniques you can use to prevent an future formation of these spots on your skin. These tips are based on the fact that ages spots are mainly caused by excessive exposure to the sun. How?

The sun's UV rays trigger melanin production in your skin. Melanin gives your skin its natural pigment or color. When excess melanin is produced it tends to clump up to form brown, black and sometimes grey spots on your skin. With that in mind, here's how you can prevent excess melanin production.

Technique 1: Limit the amount you spend in the sun

Technique 2: When out doors, wear long sleeved items of clothing when the weather permits. A large brim hat also helps.

Technique 3: Use a sun screen lotion whenever you exposed to the sun; preferably one with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 and above.

Now that you are equipped with best preventive methods, I'm finally going to share that "magic solution" I promised at the beginning of the article. The solution lies in the root of the nutgrass plant. The nutgrass plant which grows wild in India has roots that have the ability to inhibit melanin production in your skin.

What this mean for you? Well, if you can inhibit the formation of melanin, then you can naturally lighten your skin and achieve a more even toned complexion. The best way to enjoy these skin lightening benefits of the nutgrass root is to use a skin care product that contains a powdered form of the root. Skin care products that contain powdered nutgrass root are by far the most effective age spots home remedies.
