Best natural remedies to get rid of sun spots

Sun spots on the skin are common, but can be unsightly.

According to Mayo Clinic, “To protect itself from the damaging effects of the sun, your skin increases its production of the dark brown pigment called melanin.” The extra melanin can cause an irregular coloring on the skin, which is how sun spots are formed.

Let’s take a look at some of the best and proven to work natural remedies to get rid of sun spots:

Aloe vera:

It is well known as remedy for many skin conditions.

Tip: Rub 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.

Green tea:

The potent antioxidants in green tea help the skin heal itself naturally.

Tip: Simply steep an organic green tea bag in boiling water for about 3-5 minutes. Then squeeze the bag onto a cotton ball and rub over the sun spots twice a day.

Lemon juice:

The juice of lemons is a remedy for almost every skin condition that exists. The reason lemon juice is so potent for the skin is because of its natural acids that exfoliate the skin and kill bacteria. Tip: 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.

Red onions:

It may not be the greatest smelling solution, but it is very potent. The acids in onion juice can fade dark spots very effectively.

Tip: Simply juice a red onion in a juicer, and apply with a q-tip or cotton ball. Apply to skin twice a day.

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.
