Target Age Spots Caused by Sun Damage With Fresh Produce From Your Kitchen!

Sunlight is the number one reason for age spots. UV radiation exposure in our youth and adolescence winds up showing many years later as age spots, long after you have forgotten all about the run you took without a hat. For this reason, it is especially important to be careful in the sun as the risk of skin damage is very high. Of course, that’s all well and good as a warning now.

But what about all the exposure you have already had? Are the age spots popping up now? Don’t worry, and you can have them sorted out in a pinch. And the best part is, you could do it at a fraction of the expensive creams at the department stores! Try these natural fruit and vegetable remedies for age spots caused by sun damage and prepare to be wow yourself!



Lemons are an ingredient that is prominent in homemade skincare mixtures like masks or toners and in drug store formulations and high-end face creams. It is all because of the citric acid that lemons contain. Citric acid is a brilliant bleaching agent. However, it can cause a slight burn on sensitive skin. Simply squeeze the juice of a lemon and apply it neat or diluted in some water to the skin. You can apply these 3-4 times a week.


Papayas are a delicious fruit and probably a great breakfast choice, but have you considered slathering some on your face? As unusual as it may sound, papaya is an effective remover of age spots caused by the sun. Papaya contains enzymes that have peeling properties.

You may notice papaya enzymes in the ingredients;’ lists of some professional peeling products as well. Simply grate or mash the fruit and apply it to the skin directly. Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing. This is milder than lemon, so you can use it twice a day.


This deliciously watery fruit is high in many vitamins and minerals. It is high in vitamins A, B, and C. After long use, watermelon has been shown to even out skin tone. If you can fight the urge to eat it all, mash up some watermelon into a pulp and apply it to your skin, focusing on the areas you have sunspots. Rub into the skin and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off. Use this mask as often as you like, as it is very gentle on the skin. However, persistence is key when you wish to see results form this treatment.


Red Onion

This humble vegetable doesn’t just have a place in your salads, but also your beauty regime. Red onion helps fade away dark spots as it is naturally acidic. Of course, this is onion, so you cannot escape the odor! The very same compounds that give onion its distinct smell are the compounds that will be helping your skin repair itself. Mixe a tablespoon of red onion juice with two tablespoons of honey and apply this paste to dark spots. Leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off. Apply this twice a week for results.


It’s no secrets that tomatoes have a lightening effect on the skin, so if you have sun or age spots, this is great news! Korean beauty brands are all about the porcelain skin look, and their products are tomato-based.

If you don’t want to buy products with tomato-based ingredients, you can prepare your natural mask by squeezing the juice of a tomato. You can apply it to the skin with a cotton pad, or simply slicing the vegetable and rubbing it on your skin. Easy! Apply this 3 to 4 times a week.


Cucumber is fantastic for dry skin because it is highly moisturizing. It is especially great for sunspots because of its high vitamin C content. You could be traditional and apply two halves of cucumber slices beneath your eyes for reducing dark circles, or you could mash up a slice or two and mix it with glycerine to apply to your skin. You can apply to your whole face or specific spots. Rinse off after 15 minutes and apply as often as you like.

You probably didn’t know that there were so many different beauty products hiding in your vegetable rack, fruit bowl, and crisper drawer, did you! The great news is that these natural remedies are effective as well as natural and gentle on the skin. They’re cheap and easy, too! What more could you ask for!
