5 Ways to Remove and Prevent Age Spots (Beauty Blog Post)

Compared to 20-something skin, 30-something skin has more lines, less elasticity, larger pores, and visible age spots

At 34, my skin has become unsightly through aging, and has been experiencing age spots.

Age spots are harmless. They are just tiny pockets of melanin that darkens with sun exposure. The older you get, the more sun exposure you accumulate, and the more occurrences of age spots you have.

You cannot help aging, but you can prevent age spots or even remove them with use of products. Whether you are in your supple 20's or your ripe 30's (like me), these suggestions should help.

How to Remove and Prevent Age Spots

Wash your face. Twice a day.

Routine cleaning is key to a healthy glow and even skin tone. Thoroughly wash your face morning and night keeps your skin fresh and blemish-free.

It also helps to use a blemish control cleanser like St. Ive's.

Clarisonic really helps with deep cleaning.

St.Ive's Apricot Scrub is an affordable product for blemish control.

Make sun protection priority.

Even on cloudy days, your skin is exposed to UV. (It comes through the clouds. No joke.)

Make sure your skin products contains sufficient SPF.

SPF of at least 15 is a requirement for a daily moisturizer.

Use concealer and foundation.

Sometimes, we all need makeup magic. A concealer hides skin's imperfections while foundation gives you flawless coverage.

Using Clinique concealer and Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation.

Eat healthy foods.

Consuming foods rich in vitamins and proteins may not provide immediate results, but they give you long term health benefits that include beautiful skin.

Salmon contains essential vitamins and omega 3's. Plus, it's delicious.

Use an age spot cream.

Luminaze is one of the best creams for age spots. It is made with special enzymes that break down hyper pigmented melanin. This gives you an even skin tone.

Age spots are annoying. But with the best age spot creams, careful sun protection and other daily methods, you can certainly prevent them.
