Dark spots or age spots are discolored patches that appear on the skin. They are more commonly found on the face, hands and forearms. Although most doctors are unsure of the real cause for dark spots, many believe it is due to sun exposure and an aging liver. Here are some natural ways to remove dark spots.
Vitamin C Serums
Vitamin C serums for the skin must contain topically active vitamin C. Looks for hand-crafted, chemical-free, organic products. If you find the right product, the results against dark spots and damaged skin can be miraculous.
Mind Body Green states that onion is a great ingredient for removing dark spots. All you have to do is juice or blend the onion and apply it to the dark spot. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse off. Apply once a day until the dark spot disappears.
Mind Body Green also claims that horseradish is an excellent dark spot remover. If you mix horseradish with vinegar, it will slowly remove the dark spot on your skin. Mix vinegar and horseradish together and apply to the dark spot daily. The dark spot will slowly fade away.
