Home Remedy for Age Spots - 3 Clever Ways to Prevent Age Spots

If you are looking for a home remedy for age spots then you are going to want to read this article. In this article I will be sharing three ways that I have learned over the years that are effective remedies for preventing age spots.

The problem with most home remedy for age spots is that they have side effects and some of them involve applying all sorts of fruits, liquids and foods to your skin; all of which can get really messy at times.

The good news is that I'm not going to suggest you do anything drastic like that. Plus my solutions are simple and safe. And they are based on the fact that age spots are caused by repeated over exposure to the sun.

In case you did not know this, let me explain it a bit.

Ever hear of melanin? Well this is the substance that gives your skin its pigmentation. Melanin is usually produced when your skin is exposed to the sun. That is the reason why people get a tan after spending hours in the sun.

Repeated overexposure to the sun will cause overproduction of melanin. This excess melanin clumps up on your skin to form the dark pigmentations we refer to as age spots.

With that in mind, the first prevention remedy I have for you is the use of umbrellas. Don't underestimate the amount of protection from the sun UV rays umbrellas offer you skin.

The second is large brim hats. They are very effective at protecting your face.

The third and last home remedy for age spots is to wear long items of clothing if and when the weather permits. I'm referring to long skirts, long sleeved shirts and trousers.

Make no mistake about it, the above three home remedy for age spots are effective. They may be simple but if you make it a habit to apply them in your life, you'll be kicking yourself for not acting on them sooner.
