How To Pick The Best Age Spot Remover As we age, our skin naturally becomes more susceptible; vulnerable to the environment and other factors. Those lovely freckles that seemed so cute when we were young don't seem so appealing anymore as they turn into age spots. Even those of us without freckles seemingly wake up one morning with spots that weren't there the day before. Age spots are flat, and tan or brown. They typically appear on your face, hands, arms, and shoulders because those places are more likely to be exposed to the sun. They are very common in people older than 50, but they can occur at any age, especially to those of us who enjoy spending time in the sun. While they are most of the time harmless, age spots can appear unsightly. For cosmetic reasons there are many options forage spot removal treatment, varying from bleaching products, creams, and even laser removal. While a dermatologist's laser is certainly an option as an age spot remover, most find it an expense and illcomforted experience they cannot afford. Luckily for us, there are many other treatments out there that are certainly less expensive and less invasive. But with so many options, how do you choose? Where do you need it? Be sure to first decide on your objective areas. There are many different treatments out there and you must figure what you need it for first.

But with so many options, how do you choose?Where do you need it?Be sure to first decide on your objective areas. There are many different treatments out there and you must figure what you need it for first. There are treatments that are meant to be put on different areas on the body, ones that are meant for the face, and ones not meant for the face.
Also, determine the amount of age spots you wish to treat. There are spot removers which will work best on just one age spot on face, but if you're looking to remove a lot of them, you should look to a treatment that has a wider coverage area.Some may want to steer away from spot treatments for example, if you skin has suffered a lot of sun damage. Spot treatments lighten one certain area, but may leave that area lighter than the background (your skin). In this instance, try choosing a full-face brightener either by itself or with the spot treatment to avoid your skin looking blotchy.Look at the ingredients!Some people have sensitive skin. Hydroquinone for example, is considered the gold standard for helping to diminish brown spots, but it can be irritating and those with especially sensitive skin will suffer the worst. If you have sensitive skin, look for something that is more nonsensitizing, like treatments that havekojic acid, licorice extract, vitamin C, oralpha-arbutin. It is best to find a remover that includes a combination of a few of these ingredients, as they work best together.Some women, especially in their older years, turn to retinol. Retinol is very popular and for good reason. It is typically used in many creams and treatments to reduce wrinkles, but that's not the only thing it does. Retinol also helps target hyperpigmentation (age spots) because its job is to speed up cell turnover, keeping spots from reaching their maturity.You can also look for a product that includes a chemical exfoliant like salicylic acid or glycolic. These work to gently get rid of dead cells, which can add to the natural glow of your skin. Removing a top layer of old cells can help age spot treatments penetrate better into your skin.
Take it slow!Just remember, all good things come in time. While most treatments may take some time to work, it is important that you pay attention to your skin. It is extremely important to remember though that if at any time, your skin seems to have a bad reaction to a treatment or product, stop using it! The results will not get better with time. Every person's skin is different and will have different reactions to each product they use. It is best to use caution; you could make the problem worse.Always use your better judgment when it comes to trying new treatments and removers. I know those age spots can be pesky, but you must do what is best for your skin. Remember, to avoid any new age spots, put on sunscreen anytime you are in the sun. Look at ingredients, take your time, and as always, if you have questions, consult your physician!Read more about safe options for skin lightening atLighterskin.org
