How to remove skin age spots naturally

Updated November 21, 2016

Age spots, also known as sun spots, begin to appear on the skin as it gets older. Exposure to the sun can cause these small, brown spots to show up on the face, neck and hands. Laser treatment is one way to remove age spots, but it can be a costly procedure. Natural ingredients can be used to safely remove age spots.

Squeeze 1 tsp of lime juice into a small bowl.

Add 1 tsp glycerine and 1 tsp rose water to the bowl.

Mix the three ingredients together with a spoon.

Dip a cotton ball into the mixture.

Dab the soaked cotton ball onto your age spots.

Allow the liquid to sit on your skin for half an hour, then rinse it off with water. The lime juice will safely bleach your skin, so the spots no longer show up. Repeat this method twice a day until your age spots fade.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp glycerine
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • Small bowl
