Remove Age Spots Simply And Safely With Natural Creams And Lotions - Don't Risk Damaging Your Skin
Ever wondered how to remove age spots without resorting to uncomfortable or painful peels and chemicals? The good news is that you can make a difference to the appearance of discoloration and liver spots on your skin using natural, safe skincare products. You just need to know what special ingredients to look for when shopping for your creams and lotions.
Age spots can be caused by too much exposure to the sun when young. But you could also just be unlucky - you could be genetically susceptible to getting them if many of your relatives have them too. Either way, to reduce the likelihood of these blemishes, it's a good idea to limit your time in the sun to the few minutes a day needed for good health and vitamin D production.
There are some pretty drastic steps you can take to remove age spots that can be effective - if you're prepared to take some risks.
These methods include:
- Hydroquinone, a skin whitener banned in some European countries because of cancer concerns.
- Liquid nitrogen therapy, in which an extremely cold liquid is applied to the age spot. The spot whitens after about a month but the process can sting badly and there may be permanent scarring or white spots.
- Retin-A, an acid form of vitamin A, which can remove age spots, wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. People with sensitive skins can experience redness, itching and burning, and you should keep out of the sun while using it as it increases the risk of extreme sunburn.
- Alpha hydroxy peels (AHA) can cause redness and flaking, as well as increased sun sensitivity.
There are also procedures such as micro-dermabrasion and photorejuvenation, all of which carry risks of irritation and flaking. They are also quite expensive.
But there is a gentler, less invasive way to remove age spots. It may take a little more time than some of the methods described above but it's safer and less expensive.
The key to natural age spot removal is an ingredient called ExtraponeâÂ¢ nutgrass, an extract of the plant Cyperus rotundus. Nutgrass is a wild plant that grows in India but also in many other parts of the world. In fact, it's often regarded as a weed, since it can take over planted crops and grow in all sorts of conditions.
It has been used for thousands of years in Indian and Chinese medicine because of its high nutritional value but in recent times another property of nutgrass has been discovered.
Nutgrass can naturally lighten the skin by inhibiting the formation of the skin pigment, melanin. It's extremely effective against skin discoloration, age spots and even freckles. Most importantly, it does this gently and safely, with no side effects.
Not only that, nutgrass is also an excellent anti-aging ingredient. When combined with a day cream that contains other natural substances to smooth and enhance the skin's appearance, you have a product that will remove age spots and other marks while making your complexion lighter, brighter and healthier.
So there you have it: a way to remove age spots safely and naturally, without the need for harsh chemicals or acids. If you would like to know more about natural methods for lightening the skin, removing wrinkles and restoring a youthful complexion, please take a moment to visit my website.
