Face cream for age spots

There was a time not that very long ago when it was considered that age spots couldn’t be undone, that once the damage occurred it could not be repaired. Nowadays we know better. As we age, skin care becomes even more important to us. Age spots are sometimes part of the process, but oftentimes they prove to be esthetically unattractive and furthermore they tend to appear on the areas that are most exposed: the face, hands, arms and shoulders.

These areas are not targeted by these spots randomly. In fact, age spots actually appear because of the effect that sun has on aging skin. This is why they are sometimes referred to as sun spots. These sun or age spots are in fact areas of skin where melanin has bunched up due to sunlight. Melanin is the same substance that is responsible for protecting our skin from harmful sunlight it is the same thing that gives us our tans when we go to the beach. Melanin tans our skin so that it is protected from sunlight.

However, as our bodies age this mechanism of defense stops working as well as it did when the body was in its prime and age spots can easily appear once you grow older. There are a few things one can do in order to treat age spots. While some of the most common treatments might involve prescription bleaching creams or mild steroids, or even more drastic therapies such as chemical peels or surgical procedures, research and development in recent years has produced natural and effective face cream for age spots products.

There are a lot of various lotions and face creams that can be found in both offline and online drugstores which can be used to fight against age spots. These types of products should be considered way before moving to more drastic measures because all you have to do is apply said creams and wait for the results to appear.

You can consider over-the-counter face cream for age spots products that contain kojic acid, glycolic acid, deoxyarbutin or hydroquinone. Some of these might come with certain side effects if you use them in an improper manner or for a long period of time. The hydroquinone option for instance, can cause irritation even after small amounts are used in some individuals and products that contain this substance may not be suitable to be used on those with darken skin because hydroquinone is a bleaching agent. This is exactly why you should get informed before you decide what you need.

On the other hand, there are some great natural skincare products out there that have emerged from recent years of research and development. Scientists have proved that substances and plants have significant skin protecting capabilities. For instance a great natural face cream for age spots will contain a special type of active keratin called Cynergy TK. This is a type of protein that can be found all throughout the human body, so you are not adding some strange chemical to your system you are just giving the body some more of what it already has.

This protein is used in skincare products that deal with age spots because it stimulates the human body’s natural process of creating antioxidant that help to prevent and reverse any type of unnatural spots from occurring. Making sure that you keep your entire skin healthy as a whole will allow your body to fight the creation of age spots in the first place, as opposed to using a product meant to hide them or deal with them locally.

    I recently did an at home chemical peel to reduce my fine lines.  I started with a light glycolic peel, but that didn’t do the trick.  I consulted with an Esthetician  and she recommended based upon my skin type a kojic Peel.  I did it at home and the results were amazing.  I loved it!
