Getting rid of brown aging spots on the face is not possible. Skin spots are caused by melanin darkening the skin. It is possible to minimize the appearance of such spots by using skin lighteners or skin bleaches.
Yogurt is a safe and effective way to lighten brown age spots naturally. Here is a clean, green, and budget-friendly way to give your skin a fresh new look by making yogurt lightening cream.
Skin cells renew every 28 days, and gradually work their way to the surface, pushing up dead cells as they grow. Exfoliation removes dead skin, revealing smoother, softer facial skin. Prepare skin for the yogurt lightening process by using a mild exfoliant scrub. A quick-to-make scrub that is gentle and effective is made using 1 tablespoon of olive oil, mixed with ¼ cup of sugar. Massage over face, paying special attention to the forehead and sides of nose. Rinse off by splashing with lukewarm water until all the scrub is gone and face feels clean. The same scrub can be used to prepare hands or other parts of body skin for lightening.
Prepare the yogurt cream the day before you want to use it. The supplies are simple: a coffee filter, one 4 ounce cup of plain organic yogurt, a colander, and a large bowl. Here’s the process:
Place coffee filter in colander. Put colander inside the large bowl.
Scoop the entire container of yogurt into the coffee filter.
Place colander and bowl in refrigerator. Leave overnight to drain and thicken.
The next day there will be a thick yogurt cream. Remove by scraping it lightly out of the coffee filter into a clean container. Reserve the whey that dripped from the yogurt, and keep it refrigerated to use in baking. Whey makes baked items light and fluffy, and adds valuable nutrition. This is an additional bonus! It will stay good in the refrigerator for about 3-7 days.
To use the yogurt cream to lighten skin, scoop out a rounded teaspoonful and smooth over exfoliated skin and throat. Let dry about 5 minutes, and then rinse off with tepid water. Be sure to remove all the yogurt. Store the unused yogurt, tightly sealed, in refrigerator.
Yogurt contains natural alpha-hydroxy acid, or AHA, (lactic acid), which will gradually lighten and bleach skin. There will be a noticeable difference in brown age spots within 5 to 7 days of regular use. Skin will feel softer and smoother, and brown aging spots will be lighter and less noticeable. With continued use, the age spots will lighten enough to be nearly invisible and can be covered with a little dab of yellow concealer.
Here you have the natural formula for lightening age spots without using harsh abrasive scrubs or toxic chemicals. Follow this regimen daily and your skin will become younger looking. Brown age spots will be hardly noticeable. This eco-friendly solution costs just pennies per day but pays lifelong skin benefits.
