A Simple Way To Remove Brown Spots From Your Skin

One of the cruel truth about life is that we’re all going to age. With aging comes some physical changes that not everyone loves – and some that are considered unhealthy for you, too.

We all should try to take care of our skin while we’re young. Wear that sunscreen, invest in cute hats, and learn to love the shade – but a life well-lived sometimes means we end up with brown spots here and there anyway.

They’re the result of UV rays, either from sunlight, tanning beds, or the like, and are our bodies natural defense against permanent damage. Tans fade, but the areas that have gotten more sun than others sometimes remain colored darker than the rest of our skin.

We need to be on the lookout, because the truth is that sometimes brown spots can be dangerous. If you have any that are darker than others, spots that aren’t symmetrical, spots that are growing or changing, or any that are red or tender, you’ll want to make sure to get them checked out.

If yours are harmless but you’d still prefer to get rid of them, here’s a simple trick that just might work.

The simple juice solution is credited to Doug Willen, author of Quantum Paleo, and consists of only two ingredients: onion juice and apple cider vinegar.

Onions contain antioxidants and the juice has been proven to remove skin scarring. Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxy acids, which aids in removing dead layers of skin.

To craft the mixture, you start by chopping an onion and then placing it in to a Ziploc bag. Use a blunt object to pulverize the onion, then put it into a blender with 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar.

Pulse until smooth, then apply the mixture to your age spots with a cotton ball every day. According to Willen, you should start to see results within a couple of weeks.

There you have it – easy peasy, right?

You might not smell the best while it’s soaking in, but there’s always a price to pay for beauty, yeah?

And remember, the best thing you can do is to always wear sunscreen when you go outside – prevention is the best care there is.
