While there arent many natural, topical skin care options for treating age spots, there are a few nutrients that have been shown to help reduce their appearance.
First is vitamin A. Research has shown that high vitamin A intake can significantly reduce the appearance of age spots. Dr. Lark suggests 24 heaping teaspoons of spirulina (a greens food) a day. (One heaping teaspoon provides 10,000 IU of vitamin A.)
Next, vitamin E has been shown to help with hyperpigmentation, such as age spots. Dr. Lark recommends taking 4001,600 IU of vitamin E as d-alpha tocopherol per day. If you have hypertension or are taking insulin, start at 100 IU.
Lastly, boosting your collagen production is always the best natural skin care tip out there and age spots are no different. You can increase your intake of collagen-building vitamin C (mineral-buffered) either with supplements (5001,000 mg one to three times a day), or by eating foods such as cantaloupe, oranges, mangoes, blackberries, broccoli, and cauliflower.
