6 Top Natural Remedies for Age Spots

I have found that, rather than drying skin, apple cider vinegar (or indeed any vinegar) has a moisturising and softening effect. There is no need to mix it with oil. I use distilled malt vinegar (white vinegar) as a cheap hand cream. Now, my hands react very badly to soap or any detergent, which both cause awful itching and dryness that keep me awake at night. So I started using the vinegar as a way to re-acidify my skin (natural pH 5.5) after washing in soap (which is alkaline and has a pH or around 8 or higher). Through this practice, I discovered vinegar was more effective than hand cream for moisturising and way better than putting petrochemicals on your skin. But I also noticed that the age spots on my hands were disappearing. After 6 months of using every night and during the day whenever I wash my hands with soap (very frequently these days), I have virtually no visible age spots left - just pale marks. At this rate, within another 6 months they should have gone. This is not from using ACV, simply white vinegar.

I've tried several things to get rid of age spots and I finally found something that worked really well. Make a paste out of baking soda and ACV, apply to your face or the areas you want to clear, leave for 15 minutes rinse with warm water and wash your face. Finish with a cold splash of water, pat dry. I then use a very light moisturizer because I am 55 😊 However, recently I did discover that if I just get a Q-tip and dip in the ACV only and apply on the age spots directly they go away much quicker. Either way I do this before I go to bed every night and I've had amazing results!

After seeking several different methods to clear up several skin issues and failing, I was ready to go see another dermatologist

I came across this board and with so many positive reviews about ACV, I went and purchased a bottle of organic ACV with mother. I have several skin issues that really are bothersome especially sun damage on my face. I treated the following:

Actinic Keratoses on my face and arms. Brown solar spots on my face. And the most difficult, atopic dermatitis patches(eczema)on my legs. I applied un diluted ACV 2x per day with a q-tip directly to the spots and AK. In addition, I am drinking 1 tablespoon with fruit juice 1x per day. I have been doing this for 22 days and I am amazed that the AK lesions have almost disappeared!! There is some pinkish color and still a little bit to continue to treat. The brown age spots have diminished in darkness and are not noticeable unless you look for them. Once again, I am still treating them and expect continued progress. The eczema has been more difficult but has shrunk by at least 50% and seems to be drying out and flaking off a little bit at a time. I did seem to develop another blister at one site, but I believe this was a underlying one that emerged with treatment. THIS STUFF WORKS!

I am NOT getting the weight loss and lower blood pressure, others are, but am amazed to have an apparent solution to my skin problems.

I keep a bottle of 3 parts water to 1 part organic ACV for after washing my face I use it as my toner under my moisturizer on my face and neck once it dries there is no smell. I have been doing this for years, I am 55 and have no age spots on my face or neck and minimal wrinkles.

A Yea for ACV. I had two little sunspots appear on my hand. Applying apple cider vinegar (just the regular, cheap, filtered kind) on them just once, they fell off in a couple days!

I am diabetic and was overweight, blochy red skin, sun spots on my face, neck, chest, arms and legs. I read Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) was good to drink and put on skin. I bought some and began drinking 1 tablespoon three times a day and put it full strength on my body in the shower after bathing when I still had some water on me. I rubbed it all over including my face, neck whole body, arms, legs and feet. After a month I began to notice the sun spots were getting lighter, my skin was getting a more youthful look (I am 55 years old) and I had more energy. When I went to get my A1C checked, it was 5.4! My blood pressure was 113/63! My doctor was estatic and so was I. My skin now is clear and bright. I have LOTS of energy. I'm not tired anymore. All the sun spots are just about gone. My dark elbows and ankles are now a normal color. I am so happy. I have been getting so many compliments on my "glowing" complexion. My facial capillaries have just about disappeared. ACV to me is a miracle in itself.
