3 DIY Recipes For Naturally Lightening Sunspots

Do you often find yourself avoiding the sun and skipping beach days or hikes with your family because of sunspots? They can be tricky to cover up, especially if you don’t like wearing a lot of makeup! Not to worry, there are many natural ways you can treat these spots that can ruin your summer.

What are sunspots?

Sunspots are darkened areas on the skin caused by overexposure to the sun's harsh ultraviolet rays. Also referred to as solar lentigines, sunspots don’t typically come in a particular shape or colour and can appear on any part of your body that has been exposed to the sun. Most commonly, sunspots appear on the nose, cheeks, ears, hands, arms, and even upper lip.

How do I get rid of sunspots?

While there are many drugstore products that could potentially get rid of sunspots, they’re usually chemically laden and not something you want to put on your skin.

Instead, the best method of getting rid of sunspots is to prevent them in the first place by using a sun lotion like our Solar Shield. Our 100% all natural formula is perfect for all skin types and contains organic ingredients like Vitamin C, Borage oil, and Vitamin E that all nourish while protecting the skin from harmful rays.

If you already have sunspots however, the best methods for getting rid of them are by using natural home remedies...

3 DIY Recipes for treating sunspots

One of the most cost effective and smartest methods of saying bye bye to sunspots are DIY concoctions that have been used for many years! Following are 3 recipes you can try if you’re suffering from sunspots.

  1. Lemon Juice

All you need is a lemon and a cotton ball. After squeezing fresh lemon juice onto your cotton ball, dab it onto the affected areas and leave on for about 20 minutes. Then, wash off with cool water, pat dry and follow with a natural moisturizer.

This remedy can be used every day and works so well because lemon contains natural bleaching properties that may reduce the appearance of sunspots.

  1. Aloe Vera

What you need for this remedy is either aloe vera juice, or aloe vera gel. Apply some to the affected areas with clean hands, then leave on for 30 minutes before washing off.

Since this remedy is very skin friendly, you can use it as much as you need, and since aloe vera contains agents that naturally heal and lighten dark spots, your skin will soon regenerate.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix equal parts (1 tbsp) apple cider vinegar, water, and honey, and apply to your sunspots for about 10 minutes before washing off.

The reason apple cider vinegar is known to work so well for sun spots is because its acids work to exfoliate darkened skin cells and other blemishes.
