How to Naturally Reduce the Appearance of Age Spots on Your Hands

· October 19, 2017
If you're looking to reduce the appearance of age spots on your hands, look no further than these fantastic natural remedies!

The skin that covers our hands is more delicate than in other areas of the body and, unfortunately, it’s also exposed to more wear.

Their contact with diverse surfaces, the impact of the sun’s rays, and the use of chemical cleaning supplies are some of the reasons that age spots, wrinkles, and other imperfections can appear. 

The problem is that we don’t usually take care of them during our daily beauty routine and, although there are products to treat them, many ignore them until they notice changes.

While it is more likely to have them after the age of 40, many times they form prematurely as a result of a lack of nutrients.

Fortunately, the use of some homemade remedies can decrease their appearance, minimize hyperpigmentation, and reduce the effects of the toxins.

We want to take this opportunity to share 5 good options that you should try to use at least two times a week.

1. Homemade avocado, lemon, and yogurt cream

2. Homemade pepper, parsley, and wheat germ cream
