Simple Trick to Remove Brown Spots from Your Skin


We all have brown spots, otherwise known as age spots, somewhere on our skin. Whether it’s on your face, legs, arms, shoulders or hands, you will find brown spots somewhere on your body. As we age, these brown spots tend to multiply, hence the name age spots – these large brown spots are a clear sign of aging.

If you don’t like the appearance of these age spots and are looking to get rid of them, we have good news for you. There is a way to remove brown age spots from your skin, and it’s an extremely easy trick that only requires two ingredients! You probably have them in your kitchen right now.

But where do brown spots come from? Is there a way to stop them before you even have to resort to this two-ingredient solution?

Absolutely. Read on to find out why you have so many age spots, if they can be dangerous to your health, and other ways to get rid of and prevent them.

Why do we get age spots?
There are several reasons why you have these brown spots on your skin, the first and foremost being overexposure to the sun and UV rays. This can be from spending a lot of time outdoors (especially without wearing sunscreen) or spending time in tanning beds, which offer intense UV exposure.

The more we are exposed to the sun and UV rays, the more the melanin production process accelerates in our bodies. Melanin is our body’s natural response to sunlight and is responsible for tanning and darkening our skin.

Over the years, our beach tans will fade, but areas of our body that have been seriously exposed to UV rays over the years will retain some brown spots. This means that melanin has been overactive in these areas, resulting in unsightly age spots.

Are age spots dangerous?
The scary truth is that they can be. That’s not to say that all brown spots are cancerous, but there are a few warning signs you should watch out for:

If some spots are much darker than others
If they have a strange border around them
If they are getting bigger or changing constantly
If they are red or tender
If you notice any of these signs on your brown spots, see your doctor or dermatologist immediately. The best way to keep track of them is with regular self-examinations.

Nervous or unsure about the condition of your spots? Try testing your brown spots with the “ABCDE’s of Melanoma” test. Ask yourself each of these questions to determine if your spots could be potentially dangerous.

How to get rid of dark spots
Fortunately, there is a simple way to reduce the appearance of age spots on your skin!

It’s a simple juice-based solution that only requires two basic ingredients and a few minutes of your time. Watch the video below from FitLifeTV to learn a little more about this solution and why it is so effective on your age spots.

This solution is credited to Doug Willen, author of Quantum Paleo, and it really does wonders for fading your age spots. The two ingredients you’ll need? Onion juice and apple cider vinegar.

Onion juice has been proven to help remove scars from the skin. Onions contain antioxidants that help fight free radicals, especially in the upper layers of the skin.

Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxy acids, an acid that helps remove dead skin layers. With these two healing ingredients, your skin will be fresh and spotless in no time.

Anti-Aging Spot Blend

Chop up a fresh onion and place it in a Ziploc bag.
Spray the onion using a blunt surface and pour it into a blender.
Blend the onion with half a cup of apple cider vinegar until the mixture is smooth.
Dip a cotton ball in the solution and apply it to your pimples daily. Do this for 2-4 weeks or until you see results.
While this is not a miracle solution for your age spots, it is an all-natural, inexpensive and simple solution that is not only convenient but also EXTREMELY effective. It may take a few weeks, but if you stick to this routine, you’ll only get positive results.

Can age spots be prevented?
Yes and no! Unless we confine ourselves to the house forever (which we don’t suggest…at all), we’re going to be exposed to the sun in one way or another.

The best thing you can do to avoid creeping, large or dangerous age spots is to be aware of how much time we spend outdoors. Cover up with long-sleeved shirts and long pants whenever possible and ALWAYS, ALWAYS put on sunscreen.


Even in the winter. Even if you’re just running outside for a minute. WEAR SUNSCREEN.

Also, stay away from strong UV lights, like in tanning beds. These beds, while they give you the tan you crave, are nothing but severely harmful to your skin.

And, as always, if you have any concerning age spots, make sure to bring them to your doctor right away. Stay protected and stay smart about your brown spots!
