5 Best Ways to Get Rid of Sun Spots Naturally

How to Remove Sunspots Naturally

Sunspots are the marks on the skin that appear due to extreme exposure to the skin to the sun. The sun produces harmful ultra-violet rays. Sunspots appear on those areas that are exposed to the sun directly such as back, hands, and face. You may observe discoloration of skin in case of sunspots. You must try to prevent the formation of sunspots on the skin by taking proper skin care. You must make it a point to apply sunscreen lotion on the skin every time before going out in the sun. Here are some tips to get rid of sunspots.

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

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.

Red Onions

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.

Sunscreen Lotion

Remember to apply sunscreen lotion on the skin before going out in the 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.
