If you have dark spots you want to get rid of naturally so that you’re not emptying your wallet for costly and dangerous procedures like laser peels, the first step in treating your dark spots is to understand what they are and why you have them.
Dark spots are also referred to as: age spots, liver spots, melasma, sun spots, and brown spots just to name a few. When it comes down to it, dark spots are simply caused by excessive skin pigmentation. Your skin is pigmented by melanin, which is overproduced by your body due to unnecessary sun exposure or skin irritation, which can be caused by many different factors.
The extra pigment usually is not too deep in the skin so it CAN be treated effectively by home remedies. Please note that if you are ONLY using home remedies without something like SwissGlo™ Dark Spot Serum it will take MUCH longer for your dark spots to completely disappear. Ideally, you want some sort of combination. Here are a few things you can add on in addition to SwissGlo™ Dark Spot Serum to make those dark spots a thing of the past.
Buttermilk is a wonderful household item that can remove dark spots naturally over a long period of time. The lactic acid present in the buttermilk will help to exfoliate away the spots without drying out your skin like many dangerous and cheap solutions in the marketplace. Simply use a cotton ball and apply it to the affected area and wash it away after a few minutes.
If your skin is naturally oily, it might also be beneficial to add a teaspoon of lemon juice to your buttermilk before applying it to the affected area.
Tomato juice is also a widely recommended treatment for your skin. You don’t even have to apply it topically, either; you can simply drink tomato juice regularly to increase your skin health. However, applying it to your skin directly is thought to help with dark spots. If you wish to do this, you can apply it to a cotton ball just like you would with buttermilk as mentioned above and rub the affected area, making sure to wash it off once you are done.
Believe it or not, there are some foods that can be added to your diet that are thought to help prevent dark spots and lighten your skin. Any food rich in antioxidants will help keep your skin clearer. Some foods known to be filled with antioxidants are dried, small red beans, red kidney beans, pinto beans, blueberries, cranberries, and raspberries. All of those are delicious anyway so they’re worth adding in!
While all of these home remedies work on their own to a degree, depending on how oily or sensitive your skin is, you may have to experiment a little to see what mixture works best for you. You can mix tomato juice with buttermilk to create a wonderful natural remedy, then, you can add as much lemon juice to the mix as needed to offset oily skin.
Some other natural remedies that can be added to assist you in naturally removing dark spots are: papaya, cane sugar, rose water, onion juice, horseradish, and castor oil.
If you are not seeing the results you want from exclusively using natural skin treatments such as these, that may be because they will take a lot longer than expected to lighten up your dark spots, sometimes up to three months or even more. The best solution is to purchase a dark spot removal cream such as SwissGlo™ Dark Spot Serum which can safely remove your dark spots much faster.
The clock is ticking and you don’t want to have to work at your dark spots for months, especially since those months you’re getting older anyway! It’s a safe solution to help get rid of them fast, formulated in Switzerland including top-quality natural herbs and flowers found native to the land that are proven to not just lighten your dark spots in a short amount of time, but eventually eliminate them completely.
