Get Rid of Age Spots with Vitamin A

age spots

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.

    I have tried to print off a couple of your articles so I can read later and the only part that prints is the reviews or the “stuff” on the left the article does not print – WHY?
    I still would like to print off some of the articles please let me know how?

      Hi CJFallon! If you want to print the article using Google Chrome, simply right click on the article and choose print. Then choose your page ranges (I think this one would be pages 2-4), then click “print” at the top of the box on the left. That should do it.

    Great advice – I can’t believe I didn’t think of this myself! I have oily skin and really want to use retinol on my skin but can’t seem to find a product that doesn’t cause an oil slick on my face.
    This is the perfect solution, if it actually works. I’m going to order some of these right now. Does anybody have any idea how long it takes to see results using the capsules instead of a cream? It seems logical that it may work faster or maybe a bit better because it’s just the vitamin A. I’ll keep you posted!

    Awesome awesome awesome advice! I’ve got a couple of spots on my face thanks to sunworshipping when i was younger. Who would have thought that the gorgeous tan that I had throughout my 20’s and 30’s would leave spots for me in my 40’s?

    I’ve been using a cream with retinol in it and it’s working a little but not as much or as fast as I’d like. I’m going to go get some of these tonight and try it. Isn”t vitamin A ano oil-soluble vitamin though, which means it can build up in your system?

    I’m not sure but I’ll check before I take it orally because I eat a lot of veggies and get lots of A in my diet. I’ll definitely start applying it topically tho! Thanks!
