Restore your hands' youthful appearance
The older you become, the more likely it is that you'll have to deal with these: age spots. The brown discolorations are usually most noticeable on the hands. Although they are completely harmless, many people don't care for the dark splotches. Before you read on to find out how to get rid of them, you might be interested to know what causes them.
Age spots are the result of years of sun exposure. People who regularly use tanning beds are also prone to them. The reason is that UV-radiation stimulates the production of melanin, the pigment in the skin enables you to tan. This can later develop into permanent "age spots," particularly on skin that has been often exposed to the sun and thus has a higher concentration of melanin. Even if many people find tanned skin beautiful, these spots are a rather undesirable side effect. So what can you do?
The best way to prevent age spots is of course good sun protection. You should try not to lie out in full sun too often. For people with fair skin tones this is especially high risk! Of course if the spots are already there, there is something you can do to alleviate them without having to resort to aggressive skin-brightening creams. Instead, you'll find this unexpected treatment directly in your pantry: onion juice!
You read that correctly: onion juice mixed with apple vinegar is a super household remedy to lighten the skin. The secret lies in the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)
that remove dead skins cells and reveal the healthy skin underneath.
