7. Aloe vera
Aloe vera is well-known as a great remedy for many skin ailments, from poison oak and stinging nettles, eczema, age spots and beyond. It offers both moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties that keep the skin feeling fresh, young and hydrated too. For the best results, use an aloe vera plant (found at most garden stores, nurseries and even some grocery stores), but if you can also use aloe vera juice which can be purchased online and at health stores.
Here’s what to do:
- Break off one of the leaves and rub a little of the gel that oozes out onto your age spots.
- Allow it to soak in – there is no need to rinse, though it can feel a bit sticky.
- If you want to wash it off, be sure to let it sit for at least 30 minutes first.
- Repeat twice a day until desired results are achieved.
