Get Rid of Age Spots with Vitamin A
As we age, we might start to see spots (literally) on our hands, feet, face, legs or arms. Many people might get nervous over the darkening of skin anywhere on their body, but know that this is not a sign of skin cancer, these spots are age spots.
While that probably doesn’t sound any better to you either, especially since women are hyper-sensitive to begin with about aging, the fact of the matter is, they usually happen to everyone eventually, some of us are even genetically inclined to see them at an early age.
However, if you follow a couple simple steps, you not only can get rid of them, but you can also prevent them before your time.
First, to prevent age spots, stay out of the sun. If you have to be in the sun, wear sunscreen. Ladies, you have been told this enough. There is nothing about attractive or sexy about baking yourself to the color of shoe leather. You might not think it is going to happen to you, but it will. It’s proven.
If you already have age spots, Vitamin A is the sure fire way to get rid of them. You want to work with this in an oil. One of the most effective methods for this is to actually take the vitamin twice a day, while also breaking open a capsule and rubbing the concentrated oil onto your skin at night (if you have time during the day, that’s great too).
There are a variety of lotions that have Vitamin A in them, but many of these have the supplement in small doses, you want to try to find the highest concentration of the vitamin possible.
Additionally, if you want a quick fix and don’t want to run oil on your skin each night, invest in a chemical peel. While usually administered at a dermatologist’s office or a plastic surgeon’s office, this does have the ability to get rid of age spots immediately. Keep in mind though, this route requires recovery time.
