These age spots are mostly a result of years of exposure to the sun and its ultraviolet rays, but tanning beds may also cause their appearance. Age spots are a collection of Melanin, the pigment situated in the upper skin layer which gives the skin color.

When skin is exposed to UV light, these rays speed up the production of this pigment, which leads to a tan. The darkening of the skin serves to prevent UV rays from doing damage to the deeper skin layers.

Therefore, these spots commonly appear on those areas which have been exposed to the sun longer, where melanin is produced in greater amounts.

Logically, proper sun protection would prevent the appearance of age spots. Light-colored or fair skin types are more susceptible to age spots, and if you have a history of intense or frequent sun exposures or sunburn --  you will be more prone to them.

Typically, these spots are not dangerous. However, if you notice that some of them have changed in appearance, you should visit your doctor and examine the reason.

Usually, these age spots are treated with freezing, laser therapy, bleaching creams, chemical peels, or a dermabrasion. Yet, before you decide to try surgical options, you should definitely try some of the effective natural ways for removing age spots. At home remedies are cheaper and natural to your body and many times work just as effective if not more without the use of harsh chemicals and toxic products.

Frankincense essential oil is  rich in antioxidants which neutralize the action of free radicals. Apple cider vinegar has alpha hydroxy acids, which efficiently eliminate dead skin cells and reveal the healthy skin layer underneath. The use of this mixture has been reported to provide a healthy glow to the skin as well.

How to apply:

Topically apply two to drops of undiluted frankincense oil on the age spot every morning and evening. Continue with the process until the age spots fade. Topically apply one or two drops of undiluted frankincense oil on sun spots or stretch marks twice daily.

Furthermore, remember to use sunscreen to protect your skin and natural shea butter with coconut oil and lavender essential oils for skin and essential oils for hair that balance hormones safely and natural without harsh chemicals.
