Top 10 Ways to Get Rid of Freckles and Age Spots

A Simple guide to get a clear skin

Have you ever wondered how to get rid of freckles and age spots safely and effectively? There are a lot of ways in which you can improve overall skin appearance but how to get rid of freckles and age spots is another thing. This is one of the most common skin complaints but few products actually live up to their promises of better skin that’s free from freckles and age spots.

Prevention is Key!

Top 10 Ways to Get Rid of Freckles and Age Spots

This is one of the most effective ways on how to get rid of freckles and age spots permanently. When you slather on sunscreen every morning and make sure that you do it religiously (and not just during sunny days!), you ensure that your skin stays as freckle-free and age-spot free for a longer period of time.

Hat Up

If you haven’t found the perfect sunblock for your face just yet, putting on a nice hat is a great way to protect your skin. Even if you have sunscreen on your face, wearing a hat is a great way to ensure that your skin is well protected from the terribly aging effect of the sun on your skin.

Drink Up!

Making sure that you have adequate water intake will keep your skin looking healthier. If your skin is as blemish-free and supple as possible, your age spots and freckles[1] don’t take center stage. This is a rather cheap way of letting you and your skin shine – and not your freckles or age spots!

Eat Up

There are lots of supplements you can take to get rid of age spots and freckles. Some are available over-the-counter while some require a prescription from your dermatologist. Other supplements you can take to ensure healthy and great-looking skin are fish oil soft gel capsules and vitamin E[2]. Power up this good-skin combo by adding primrose oil or grape seed oil to your list of supplements.

Get Rid of The Freckles Naturally

Love Lemons

Although lemons are sour, they do a lot of good on your skin and freckles! When squeezed directly on the skin, the acidity of the lemon acts as a good lightening astringent to gently lighten the skin. You can do this on a regular or weekly basis depending on your skin’s sensitivity level.

Papaya is Love

If you have papayas in your kitchen, get a spoonful and mash it. Put this on your face and let it stay there for about 20 minutes. Papayas are used in South East Asia as a skin lightener and anti-wrinkle treatment. It contains a host of healthy vitamins and nutrients to make your freckles less noticeable without causing damage to your skin

Honey, honey!

Smearing honey on your face is a good way to let your smooth skin shine through!

Cucumber to Relax Skin

Cucumber has both relaxing and gentle lightening properties and it is a great way to take away the acidity that has been gathering in your skin.

Baking Soda

This is a great way to enhance and gently lighten your skin by acting as a microdermabrasion agent. Use as a scrub every two weeks or once a month.

Cover Up

Last but not the least you can use a corrective concealer to instantly cover freckles and age spots. There are multi colored concealers out there to suit your skin tone.
