Everybody’s got them: old, young,
middle aged men and women. These are the little brown spot that you can
find on just about anyone who spends a considerable amount of time in the sun. Now, some cultures may consider them beautiful and they absolutely can be,
but they can also be a sign of aging. Who wants that? I’m talking about age spots. Age spots are those little brown things
on your skin that are caused by exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. You see them in most people over 50, but virtually anybody, who spends time
outside can get them on their skin. You may actually have them right now.
I totally get it and got them all over my shoulders. So, some more things that can cause
age spots are cheap tanning beds. They’re huge culprit of this.
See, what happens is, when the sunlight or the ultraviolet light from the sun or
cheap tanning bed hits your skin, it speeds up this process called “melanin” in your body. It produces more of it. Now, the cool thing about melanin is that it actually causes tanning in the skin. It’s like your body’s evolutionary response to form armor, protecting the deeper layers. Now, back to the age spots. When certain areas of your skin are seen a lot like
your arms, your hands, your neck, your shoulders your face, when that’s getting constantly hit by the sun, they’re getting higher amounts of melanin. When the summer fades over the years
and you’ve spent lots of days at the beach, you get these little brown spots that remind you
of that time that you spent there. The most common questions I hear about
age spots are, are age spots dangerous? How can I get rid of it?
Let’s tackle these questions right now. First of all, are they dangerous?
There are a few things that you should watch out for and if it starts to change then
we know we have a problem deeper than age spots. If you have much darker ones, that could be an issue,
or if they’re growing quickly. If they have a funky-looking border around the outside, that look a little bit different than the other ones. If they’re red, tender or bleeding, that’s a sign
that you need to see the doctor. So, the next question I want to address is how can I get rid of unwanted age spots? Dr. Doug Willen, author of Quantum Paleo
created a solution for removing age spots. He only uses two simple ingredients
in his kitchen and everybody has them in their kitchen. The number one solution is onion juice. It turns out onions have a lot more to offer us
than flavor in the super burgers. Studies have found that onion extract
actually helps remove scarring on the skin and it reduces skin lesions.
Onions have an antioxidant properties that help to neutralize free radicals and
encourage healing on the outer layers of the skin. The second ingredient and if you don’t have this, I don’t know if I can be friends with you anymore.
You know what it is? Ready for it? Apple cider vinegar.
Now we talk about apple cider vinegar a lot. I talk about episode where I’m talking
about apple cider vinegar. We’re going apple cider vinegar, lemon,
turmeric shots right from the comfort of my kitchen and there’s a reason for that. ACV contains alpha-hydroxy acids
that help to remove dead skin. When you remove the dead skin from the top, it actually
contains the majority of the actual age spots. Now, a lot of people don’t know that. This is a cool hack and I want you to share with your friends too. New studies have found that the treatment of
these acids from apple cider vinegar, improve the skin and the damaged by the sun. Here is how the age spot
removal remedy actually works. What I want you to do is slice up a
fresh onion and put the contents of the bag. Use some sort of heavy object to pulverize it. Pour the onion into a blender along with a half a cup of apple cider vinegar and just blend it up. Now, take a cotton ball or a cloth and apply
the remedy to your age spots once a day. Continue this for at least two to four weeks
or until you see improvement. Now, this remedy might not be an
overnight fix but it’s extremely effective. I want to hear from you.
So give this a try. Post some pictures, once you see that it’s actually working and let me know how it goes. Keep in mind that everybody’s skin like
each of our bodies is entirely different. But if you’re sick of dealing with age
spots, then this is definitely worth the shot . This week’s juicer winner is Jennifer Sandoval. She’s been using the blender
