Horseradish, Lemon Reduce Age Spots

Years of sun exposure and free radical damage can lead to flat brown spots on your hands, face, and body. While age spots are harmless, most people consider them an unwelcome sign of aging.

“Age spots are really sun-induced freckles,” said Robert E. Clark, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Dermatologic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Unit at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. aThey commonly appear on the backs of the hands.a

You can also see them along the shoulders (where someone has had significant sun exposure) and on the face. Age spots are common in older people but someone who’s had significant sun exposure can get them in their late twenties, thirties and forties.

Even a little bit of sun worshipping can cause age spots later in life. Sunlight contains ultraviolet rays that cause suntans and burns. As time goes by, tanning causes more pigment to be deposited in the skin. This eventually leads to flat, brown skin lesions known as age spots. They’re also called liver spots or sun spots.

    Are Freckles like Dark Spots where they are skin damage? ?
    Trying to figure out whether to use skin damage cream/revitalizing/antiaging creams. Are freckles an aging thing or is it simply a skin dark spot in which what cream is good to LIGHTEN them???

    I tried lemon juice it didn’t work. To high of SPF suntan lotion gives me a rash since my cheeks can get flushed quickly. Any advice please?

    And NO freckles are not HOT (I’ve read other posts on here) if you seen my freckles you wouldn’t think so.

    And I don’t want it costly so won’t go to do laser cosmetic surgery. I just want to simply lighten them or even my face skin tone out so it doesn’t look like patches everywhere.

    • Gefilte Girl says:

      Freckles aren’t the same thing and those cosmetics will not work on them. There are much stronger things but if you think sunscreen burns, forget about it, and they’re only available through a dermatologist, like the Obagi line.

    Will Lemon Juice remove sun spots? ?
    I have dark spots on my face from over exposure to the sun, but I am quite sensitive to fragrances, which most creams have. I’ve heard that lemon juice will remove sun/age spots, if so how well does this really work, how long does it take?

    Thanks for the information!!!

    • Aphrodite says:

      its most likely gonna make your face really dry..especially if you have sensitive skin to begin with… if it really bugs you, i suggest you visit a dermatologist. he will be able to give you the correct advice.

    How do u remove age spots with home remedies?
    I have heard about Pure Lemon Juice, U need to rub it on daily.
    Have anyone tried any of these home remedies for age spots? I have my mother going crazy with her age spots. She puts on gloves. I would like to help her, could some1 help me? thank you.
    P.S. I also heard about garbanzo beans. But dont remember completely how or with what she could use it with.

    • delilah says:

      yes, lemon juice is good, but you must mix it with water or the acid might damage your skin. half and half.
      anything with vitamin c is good, you need to consume a good amount of it daily.

  5. ashierry says:

    age spots with lemon juice?
    1.does it really work?
    2.how many minutes does it need to be on the skin before washing it off?
    3.do i need to mix it with anything OR do i just apply it with plain lemon juice?


    • JJ says:

      1. Yes, on most skin types. Some with dry skin avoid it, but it should be okay with most skin types.
      2. 5-10 minutes.
      3. You can put it on just like that, or dilute it and add honey like the poster above says.

      And make sure you don’t go into direct sunlight with the lemon juice on, or it could make it worse.

    What’s the best way to reduce acne scars?
    I have olive-colored skin that has dark spots from acne. I do NOT have scars as in bumpy open damaged pores, just marks. Any products that are successful or home remedies? Please keep in mind, that since im tan, scars do not just “Fade away” with moisturizers or potato juice. I’ve tried almost everything, from home masks to lemon juice and honey. Please help me! I hate wearing a pound of Liquid foundation all over. I’m only 13 and usually 13 year olds shouldn’t worry about scars at such a young age. Please help? Thnx you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beauty spots/sun spots on my face?
    Hey! I’m not sure whether it’s beauty spots or age/sun spots that I have on my face?? I have a spot [it’s about the size of the tip of a permanent parker] on my cheek, and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there before. It’s quite a dark brown colour. My mom says that it was always there, it just enlarged over the years, but I’m the one studying my face in the mirror, not her!! So I think I would know whether it was there before or not. . .I also looked through a few photos of when I was younger, but I couldn’t see the spot anywhere. I’ve noticed the spot for about 3 years now, but it never really bothered me, up until now! I hate it. . .And I don’t even know what it is. . .I’m only 15, so it would be quite weird if it was age/sun spots, though I have been in the sun quite alot before. I also notice a few NEW spots, and there’s one on the other cheek as well now, and I’m DEAD sure it wasn’t there before. It’s like the thing just appeared in one week or something. They both are about the same size. There are also a few new ones that are SUPER small, but they weren’t there before! I can’t get lazer treatment, so is there ANY natural way I can cure/bleach them?? Like lemon juice or something?? Please & thanks in the meantime. . .

    • WeEr says:

      There were totally 15 moles / black spots on my face and body before, I tried this mole remover and most of my moles were gone right now. But please pay attention, donโ€™t over use in order to avoid getting scar. Hope it works for you too.

      For more information, please see the following using methods, it is very useful for unwanted moles, beauty marks, black spots.

      10 ML Skin Care non-Laser Removal

      (1) Clean the nevus and the area around it, use a toothpick (do not use a cotton stick to tip or wipe) to mix the liquid and sediment, and then tip a little amount of the mole remover and apply it onto the middle of the nevus. The area would turn to white colour after 1 minute. Use alcohol or water to clean the mole area after 10 minutes (If you tip the amount of mole remover properly, you don’t have to clean). The mole would peel off (May help with finger) in 8 to 20 days. Repeat the process again until the mole peeling off if the colour of the nevus is dark. (it is suggested applying the liquid to nevus on hands or legs first to see the results and learn to control the usage before applying the liquid to other areas of the body, DON’T TRY on FACE for the first time!)

    How to get rid of my freckles?
    ok so i found these remedies and can you tell me if they work!

    Make a smooth paste of oatmeal powder and yogurt, apply on the freckles and leave for 20 minutes and wash with cold water.You can do this once or twice a week to see any difference.

    FACE: I had pimple scars, discolorations, many freckles, age/sun spots, uneven and sun damaged skin, even moles and this completely got rid of them all.
    Use a natural oil – olive oils work really well – and massage over and over quite vigorously (that is the key to it working!) Do with a “to and fro” action not a circular one, using tips, sides and front of fingers. As skin has to adjust, gradually build to a 20 min or more daily treatment(can do in one, two or more sessions) for fastest results).They will fade completely overtime.

    If apply to whole face it will give you a completely clear, totally blemish free, healthy and glowing skin. You will not need to use any other treatment or product ever again.

    HANDS/ARMS/LEGS: Use a softer type rectangular hand held green pan scrubber, dip in oil and rub repeatedly directly on the spots – reddening of skin is OK but be careful not to overdo.Skin quickly adjusts. you can rub more strongly in a day or two. See distinct fading in one week. Keep it up and they will completely vanish.

    If use sunscreen apply on top of the oil, It is equally, if not more, protective and the oil protects from harmful sunscreen ingredients. I am in intense sun for many hours and with one application of even an spf 15 sunscreen I get complete protection and.never burn nor get any sun damage.

    i got freckles because i hate wearing sunscreen cause only get tan by burning and then it turns into a tan! we were in tahiti and i was swimming all day and my mom kept bothering me and i was like mom i have to get a tan and i have a bunch of freckles! so i was wondering what remedies (if those don’t work) are there besides lemon juice! I HATE THEM SO DON’T TELL ME THERE CUTE!!!!
    yeahhh., trust me i will NEVER EMBRACE THEM!!!!

    • Gracie says:

      sweetie i know you hate your freckles but try embracing them because they make you unique — trust me that someday you will be thankful for them. you might still see them as a flaw but you will learn to love them.

      **love yourself the way you are, don’t try to change yourself.

    Does Lemon Juice Remove Age Spots?

    Thanks for the information!!!

    • One life. says:

      Lemon juice does not remove age spots, it is sometimes said that the Citric Acid helps bleach them but a far as I know it is not proven.

      Age spots usually appear when we’re in our early 30s on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun, such as our back, chest, arms and hands. Although they may look similar to moles, age spots are very different. Moles are genetically predetermined, while age spots are the result of cumulative sun exposure throughout life.
      If you have age spots, you’re at a higher risk of developing skin cancer, so it is important to see your doctor if they change colour or appearance or if you are worried about them. Once your doctor gives you a clean bill of health, discuss the various options for minimising the appearance of age spots.

      There are several over-the-counter and prescription treatments for age spots, available at your local chemist. Remember, though, that with whichever method you choose, results will vary depending on how severe the spots are, how much time you spend in the sun and how consistently you follow treatment. It’s essential to protect your skin against new age spots and prolong the result of treatment by wearing sunscreen on all exposed areas of the body every day, even in winter.

      Here are some options that can reduce the appearance of age spots:

      Fade Creams
      What they are: Over-the-counter moisturisers containing two per cent hydroquinone, a bleaching agent.

      What they do: Gradually lighten age spots over a couple of months. They work best when used in conjunction with a glycolic acid moisturiser, also available over-the-counter.

      Drawbacks: It will take a few months to see results, and these creams don’t have much of an effect on darker, more stubborn spots.

      What they are: Prescription-strength vitamin A creams such as Retin-A and Retinova.

      What they do: Fade discoloration while stimulating the growth of new, healthy cells. They are often used with prescription-strength hydroquinone creams for a stronger bleaching effect.

    Clinics and creams for freckle removal?
    Hi there!
    I know that some people think freckles are pretty and add character to a person, but I would really like to find out how to remove mine. I don’t have many, most of them are around my Jaw area but personally I don’t like them – to me they are like age spots and they also show up really well in digital photographs (even when wearing make up). I would like to ask if anyone knows of any really good UK Clinics that can treat freckles at reasonable prices, preferably in scotland, but any UK clinic if not scotland. Also, in the meantime are there any effective creams that I can use, I really want them gone and have used other treatments such as cocoa butter and even lemon juice. I doubt my GP would freely treat it, especially as I live on a small island where there are no clinics dealing with this, but I am willing to save up and get it done. Any advice would be much greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    how do I use lemon juice/baking soda for age spots?
    I am 40, and getting them on my hands, no product I’ve tried so far has worked.

    • Mukunda M says:

      Lemon juice nor baking soda nor anything else you simply put on them are going to help. This is a fast working cure. You use any oil and rub them over and over many times and you will see them fade in a couple of days. Keep it up and they will fade completely. If you want to speed it up, you rub with a loofah (the softest kind) and use that in conjunction with the oil .Hey presto! They will go really quickly.

    With so many products out there like Oil of Olay and Neutrogena, anyone had success with getting rid of age spots?
    I have tried lemon juice for 3 months and I have seen some difference but I bet there’s something out there that works faster.

      I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Artistry or not but they have this stuff called Bright Idea illuminating Essence and it get’s rid of age spots as well as other kinds of skin spots. My grandma uses it and loves it cuz she had a lot of sun damage and liver spots. It’s guarenteed to work or they’ll refund all of your money. You can’t buy their products in stores but I can give you the direct link to the product so you can read all the info on it and decide if it’s what you are looking for or not and if it is what you want this is where you can buy it also.

      Here is the link:

      Like I said if you would use it and not be happy with it for any reason they will give you all of your money back. It may seem a little pricey depending on what you are used to because they are a prestige brand but their stuff works wonders and it’s more than worth it. Hope this answered your question ๐Ÿ™‚

    at age 11 i begun to get spots im now 18- that’s 7 years – i have had to miss school because it got that bad-
    i have been to the doctor for 6 years and gotten Lott’s and Lott’s of different meds to fix it- pills, creams, lotions and so on. i have tyred toothpaste- Lemon juice- salts- and just plain soap – nothing has worked- im getting to the point that i cant look in the mirror anymore

    please please help me what am i doing wrong?

    • Frustrated says:

      The other answers have given you some good ideas of various cleansers and creams to try, but I want to ask you if you have looked at your diet?

      You need to eat less fat and fewer sugary foods and more fruit and vegetables; at least 5 portions a day and to cut out the carbonated and caffienated drinks and drink more pure water. This is known to be good for the complexion.

    I Need some advice on how to get rid of blemishes on my face….?
    Hello everyone…I’m 21 year of age (male) and i live in a tropical country (Guyana). My face has several dark spots which are the results of bad breakouts and sometimes from ingrowing hair (i have to crack the skin to get em out). Anyways I Don’t get much breakout now and i’ve learnt to minimize the ingrowing hair. I’m now looking for a way to fade away the dark spots on my face. So far no prescription medication have worked so i’ve resorted to homemade treatments. From all the reading that i’ve done online it would seem that CUCUMBER and LEMON are the best there is for blemish related issues. As such, i’ve started to apply freshly squeezed lemon and cucumber juice (in equal portions) everynight on my face and washing it off after 15 minutes. I WANNA KNOW IF THIS IS A GOOD IDEA? The reason i’m asking this question is because i’ve never found a recipe with lemon and cucumber ‘together’, i’m wondering if i missed anything and that these two might not be a good combination…Thanks in advance!

    • KK says:

      I was just watching that guy from Oprah-Dr. Oz-on his new talk show and he had a home remedy for acne. He said that if you take pepermint and crush it up to make a paste then put it on your face, it clears up acne. He said that pepermint is a natural cure for acne. I tried to look it up on his website but since it was just on tv a few minutes ago, it’s probably too soon to be on his site.
      Found this online:


      It is important using this remedy to use peppermint and not spearmint as it is the latter which contains menthol in it. To use this particular one take a handful of the leaves and crush them completely with a mortar and pestle. Following crushing the leaves take them and the juice and apply it to the skin affected and leave it there for around 5 to 10 minutes. After this time now wash off with cold water.

      You can repeat this remedy as often as you like and will find that not only does it reduce the inflammation but the pain felt this is because the menthol contains natural anti inflammatory and analgesic properties.
      Here’s that website-they have other options for you too. Good luck.

    How do I get my freckles to fade?
    I have light freckles on my face, and I would like for them to fade a bit, but I don’t want to do anything crazy to my face. I heard that putting lemon juice on them will help get them to fade, but then a friend told me that lemon juice will totally dry your skin out.

    How long does it usually take them to fade?

    I’m 16 so it’s not like they’re age spots or anything – at least I really HOPE they’re not! – just run of the mill freckles.

      Do an Answers search and you will see many have tried all the under eye and dark bags creams and under eye rollers and report they were not even slightly effective.
      There is an epidemic of under eye bags and circles and many are reported by those in teens or early twenties. The main reason is reaction to skin sickening toxins in skin care, cosmetic and skin medicating products. See this site Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. A Feelgood Resource. The Database tested many thousands of products and identifies which ones are the most harming and those which are non or only minimally harming. So first thing to do is select the none or least harming products.
      DO NOT USE OLAY products. On the Skin Deep Database enter in the search box Olay*
      (the asterisk is important). You will see many Olay products and`sunscreens have ingredients that are severely skin harming.

      I had freckles, age/sun spots, some pronounced scars and this completely got rid of them all.
      (see testimonial below ##)
      FACE/NECK: Use a pure natural oil – olive, grape seed, rose hip oils work really well – and massage over and over quite vigorously (that is the key to it working!). Do forward and back, not circular vigorous massage using tips, and front of fingers and sometimes palms. Skin has to adjust so gradually build to a 15/20 min or more daily treatment (can do in one, two or more sessions). Depending on how vigorous/how long you do, you should expect to start seeing results in 1 or 2 weeks. Keep it up and overtime it will get rid of them completely.

      Oils are noncomedogenic, so do not clog pores, cause breakouts nor leave face oily looking.

      ARMS/LEGS ETC: Use a softer type hand held loofah, or a softer type rectangular green pan scrubber – works just as good. Dip in oil and rub repeatedly on the spots – be careful not to overdo. It is OK if skin becomes reddened. See distinct fading in as little as one or two weeks

    • Sparkles says:

      After using one or the other products that the other women have suggested, use sunscreen to help this one from getting dark again and discourage others from forming.

      After reading your age you wrote, you should keep a close eye on it in the future. It could change into skin cancer.

      Even better to drink lemon juice and water each morning about 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything to help detox the liver. Another name for age spots is “liver spots.” I had some on my arm a few years ago and they disappeared last year after I detoxed every morning for 3 months with lemon juice. One day I looked at my arm and noticed those dark areas were gone.

      Below are presented a couple of things you need to do as a part of acne pimples home remedy treatment:

      * Gently apply fresh limejuice on pimples and blackheads.
      * Dab the mixture made by combining 1 tsp fresh coriander powder and a pinch of turmeric powder on the pimples, while going to bed in the night and wash it off when you wake up the next morning.
      * Take a few fresh curry leaves and make a paste. Apply the paste on the acne-affected area and keep it overnight and wash it off with warm water the next morning.
      * Apply the paste made of nutmeg (Jaiphal) and raw milk on acne and wash it off after 20 minutes. Do it for about 10-12 days and see the magical effects.

      Lemon juice is rich in alpha hydroxy acids that is AHA. This is one of the most potent natural skin lightener. However, it is much slow in action than synthetic commercial products but it doooes work, though it will take a long time. You can mix it with floral water and keep on using it twice a day for a long time. In the long run it will lighten your skin and have a good effect on brown spots.


    I’m only 15, so its not because of aging and I’ve had them my whole life! They are little brown dots on my thighs espcially! I dont want to get any surgery or anything major, just some home remedies! I’ve already tried lemon juice but that doesn’t seem to help. Also, summer is coming and I would like to wear shorts!!1 PLEASE ANNSWER!!

      It depends on what the brown spots are on your legs. If the number of spots increase then you may want to get it checked by a doctor. If they are a light brown color than you could also tan this summer and wait a little befor going around with these spots. I have had this before but mine went away with the lemon juice. Maybe just keep useing the lemon juice for a couple more weeks and see how that works out. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Does lemon juice really work to lighten brown spots on your face?
    I have brown spots from the sun and aging and I can’t afford expensive creams from the dermatologist. I researched and heard about lemon juice; anyone try that and it worked?

      Lemon jucie does lighten dark spots. Be careful if you have sensitive skin, but otherwise it’s alright. Just apply it directly to the spots alone.
      Masks and bleaching agents from the stores are loaded with chemicals that are far more drying or unhealthy for your skin than lemon juice.

    does rubbing lemon juice on your face really make age spots & discoloration go away? do you blow dry it after?
    like that stuff called sun-in that you put on your hair and then blow dry it to make it lighter or like putting lemon on your hair and sitting in the sun. i heard lemon does the same for your face but do you need to use the blow dryer after or just leave the lemon on by itself and do nothing?

    have you done this? does it work to lighten the age spots?
