Age spots can be found on almost any part of the body that is exposed to the sun, however they are most commonly found on the hands, face, upper back and shoulders. These flat spots, also known as liver spots or sun spots, are typically tan, black, grey or brown. Despite being caused by sun exposure, liver spots are noncancerous and are considered benign.
While age spots are harmless, many individuals consider them unattractive and wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons rather than medical necessity. Such individuals may be surprised to learn that there is a way to remove age spots that does not require a doctor. This natural method is safe, effective, and convenient. You can now rid yourself of age spots in the comfort of your own home.
People of any age or race can develop liver spots, and there is no surefire way to prevent them. As such, there are millions affected by age spots. Dr. Doug Willen has developed an easy, all natural solution to this common skin care problem. This method, called a “concoction remedy”, calls for ingredients that you may already have in your home. The mixture consists of apple cider vinegar and onion juice.
It is fairly easy to obtain the juice from an onion. Begin with a fresh onion and chop in into small pieces. Then use a mortar and pestle to crush the onion. Place the liquefied onion in a blender, add the apple cider vinegar, and blend. The concoction can be applied to age spots using a cotton ball.
Onion juice may seem like an odd addition to some, however onions have been used medicinally for ages. Onions have been used throughout history to improve general health and to treat a variety of conditions, including anemia. Onions have also been said to increase the body’s immune response in individuals with a weak immune system. Dr. Willen states that onions “also contain a number of antioxidant compounds that are very effective in neutralizing the free radicals present in the human body.”
Given the onion’s various healing properties, it makes sense that it would be used in this remedy. You should continue this method for at least 30 days for optimal results. While the process is not immediate, you should begin to notice sun spots fading away. Repeat application daily until you obtain desired results. The prepared mixture should be refrigerated and stored in an air-tight container.
