Liver spots

Liver spots are also known as solar lentigo. They are basically brown and black patches seen on the skin when it is overexposed to the harmful UV rays of the sun. Solar lentigo can cause uneven skin tone and this condition can also affect our skin in many other ways. The condition often leads to peeling and swelling of the skin. So, it is always better to treat them at the earlier stages. Do not worry, there are a few natural remedies that can help you to treat liver spots easily.

Lemon and yoghurt
The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of both the ingredients help in healing the skin. Take a bowl, add 1 tablespoon of plain yoghurt. Cut the lemon into slices and squeeze a few drops of lemon into the yoghurt and mix well. Apply this mixture on the affected area and leave it on for 15 minutes. After that rinse it off.

Baking soda
Baking soda works effectively in removing liver spots. Mix baking soda and water to make a paste. Apply the pack to the affected area. Gently scrub it in a circular motion and leave it for 10 minutes. After that rinse it off with normal water. For better results, you can use this remedy regularly.

Castor Oil
Castor oil is another option that can help you to get rid of these solar lentigos quite efficiently. All you have to do is to take some castor oil in your hand and massage it gently on the affected area. Do this every day in the morning and evening before going to bed for 3 weeks continuously and you will be amazed to see the results.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar will not only help in getting rid of solar lentigo. This solution also brings back the glow of the skin. Take 1 portion of apple cider vinegar and dilute it in some water and mix well. Now dip a cotton ball into the solution and apply it on the affected area. Leave it for 20 minutes. Repeat this once every day before going to bed.

Buttermilk
Buttermilk has to brighten properties as it contains lactic acid. It also has the ability to exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells. You just need to soak cotton balls in the buttermilk. After 5 minutes take out these soaked cotton balls and apply it on the affected area. Wash it off with normal water.
