Beach… and age spots… Not the most pleasant result of sunbathing. What to do if you wanted to get a chocolate tan, spent too much time under the scorching rays, and as a result a pigment spot appeared?
How to whiten age spots if problem skin? First of all, it is necessary to take care of the prevention of these spots long before the summer. This is especially true for people with fair skin prone to pigmentation.
For example, the consumption of vitamin C helps to reduce the synthesis of melanin, which colors our cells. Vitamin C is found in large quantities in rose hips, black currants, citrus fruits, sauerkraut, and apples. In the morning, it is advisable to wipe your face with lemon juice or wash your face with sour milk.
In a period when the sun is especially bright, and ultraviolet rays are merciless to our skin, you should try to spend as little time in the open sun as possible and be sure to use creams with a UV filter.
Beauticians can also help get rid of age spots with special treatments such as chemical peels and exfoliation. At the same time, the entire arsenal of cosmetic preparations for skin whitening is widely used: masks, lotions, tonics, creams, etc.
From proven folk recipes, one can single out a mask with olive oil and strawberries. After wiping your face with oil, apply a gruel of strawberries on it. Wash off after 15 minutes. The mask is done 2 times a week for two months.
Cucumber juice has long been famous for its bleaching properties. Cucumber pickle lotion will brighten the skin and make age spots less noticeable. Cucumber peel can even be used: pour 50 g of peel with a glass of warm water, leave for 6 hours, strain and wipe your face.
