Lighten Age Spots Naturally

Hi Annie, I came across your column and am happy to say that over a period of time I have successfully implemented your remedies at home with minimal cost and good results. I have a question for you. I am 25 years old but due to past excessive exposure to sun I have developed brown spots on my face and have started developing wrinkles around my eyes. I am wondering if you have a remedy for it which is made up of natural products?

Brown spots—age spots or liver spots they are sometimes called—are the result of sun exposure. In researching my book Better Basics for the Home: Simple Solutions for Less Toxic Living, I saw certain ingredients used over and over again for this problem. The ingredients include vitamin E, aloe vera gel, fruit acids such as lemon juice and organic apply cider vinegar, enzymes such as papaya and pineapple, witch hazel, and horseradish mixed with lemon juice, or milk. I’ve seen my age spots significantly diminish over a number of months using lemon juice as an astringent and an aloe vera gel and glycerin moisturizer (3/4 parts aloe vera gel, 1/4 part natural vegetable glycerin).
