Best natural remedies to get rid of dark spots

Dark spots can be caused by a variety of factors such as aging, exposure, acne, and even chicken pox scars.

Let’s look at some of the best natural remedies to get rid of dark spots:
Aloe vera:

It is well known as remedy for many skin conditions. Try rubbing some aloe vera gel on the spots, or if you have an actual aloe vera plant, break off a small piece and apply the liquid inside to the spots. Do so on a regular basis 2 to 3 times day.

Lemon juice:

The juice of lemons is a remedy for almost every skin condition that exist. The reason lemon juice is so potent for the skin is because of its natural acids that exfoliate the skin and kill bacteria. Squeeze the juice of one lemon and apply to skin with a q-tip or cotton ball.

You can also cut a lemon in half and rub the lemon on the dark spots. It works well on hands. Do so 2 to 3 times a day.

More vitamin E:

It is a powerful antioxidant that helps rejuvenate and strengthen skin cells. Vitamin E oil can be used topically on skin, or you can eat more foods with vitamin E such as pine nuts, almonds, spinach, wheat germ, and broccoli.

Oats:

They are filled with minerals, vitamins, and lipids that help moisturize the skin. They also contain anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidants that help fight skin diseases. Try using them in a mask.

Onion juice:

It may not be the greatest smelling solution, but it is very potent. The acids in onion juice can fade dark spots very effectively. Simply juice a red onion in a juicer, and apply with a q-tip or cotton ball. Apply to skin twice a day.
