Home Remedies for Sunspots
Below are some effective home remedies for getting rid of sunspots. I especially like the castor oil for sunspots the best.
Lime juice is one of the best remedies to fade sunspots. It is enriched with acidic properties. Apply lemon juice to the skin. It helps in peeling off the upper layer of the skin, and aids in lightening or removing the sunspots. Apply lemon juice at least two times a day to get effective results. It takes about 6–8 weeks to fade sunspots.
Another best remedy for eliminating sunspots is using red onions. Cut red onion and rub a slice of it on the sunspots. The acid in onion aids in fading the sunspots effectively.
Castor Oil for Sunspots
Castor oil is an anti-pigmentation agent that is incredibly efficient. Many people attest to the abilities of castor oil for pigmentation on face and skin. Using castor oil twice in a day will help reduce pigmentation. However, if you have extra oily skin or potent acne, avoid using it as oil worsens these issues
This moisturizing oil also has the ability to fade age spots. You can just dab a bit on the affected areas and leave on overnight, or mix with vitamin E to increase effectiveness. Do be sure to massage it well into the skin so it is completely absorbed. If you find it’s not moisturizing enough, you can add in some olive oil.
Glycerin, Rosewater, and Lime Juice
Mix lime juice, glycerin, and rose water and apply this mixture on the afflicted area. Let it stay on the skin for about 30 minutes and then clean the area. This remedy must be followed twice a day for about 3–4 weeks. This is another effective home remedy for sunspots.
Remember to apply sunscreen lotion on the skin before going out in sun. This helps in avoiding the formation of sunspots.
As you are using these treatments, take special care to protect the skin when you go outside, as all of these treatments can increase photosensitivity. Then, be patient. It takes time, usually several months of daily treatments, to see results.
