The following supplements will help in treating and reversing age spots

Vitamin C

Vitamin E (internally and topically)

Zinc (Note: do not take more than 15 mg of zinc daily over a long period of time, as it can interfere with proper absorption of copper)

The following home remedies have also shown to be effective in the removal or reduction of age spots:

*Rub fresh aloe vera juice on the spots twice daily for two months.
*Rub castor oil on the spots every morning and evening.
*Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with one teaspoon of orange juice. Apply on a cotton pad and bandage it to the area.
*Eat four fresh bilberries daily, or take 80 to 160 mg of bilberry extract.
*Apply organic buttermilk to the spots. The lactic acid in buttermilk helps to restore the skin.
*Every evening mash about 1/3 cup of chickpeas and make a paste by adding a little water. Leave it on until it completely dries, and then wash it off.
*Break the stem off a dandelion and rub the sap on the spots two to three times a day. It is said that Will Greer (Grandpa Walton) used this method successfully in treating his age spots.
*The Chinese herb, gotu kola, is said to clear up age spots, sometimes in only a few days. Add 1/8 teaspoon of the powdered herb to herbal tea, or you can just add it to hot water, mixing it with 1/8 teaspoon of ginseng and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
*Apply fresh lemon juice to the spots twice daily.

Note: Skin discolorations that increase in size or become irregular should be checked by a physician.
