Age spots are small, flat, darkened stains on the skin which usually appear on the hands, the face and the cleavage and other skin areas which are frequently exposed to sun.
The hands are particularly open to this occurrence, but in this article we will present you a peeling that will successfully help you because it efficiently removes the upper layer of dead cells of the epidermis which “carries” the changes in pigmentation.
- half a cup of raw brown rice
- one tablespoon of agave syrup
- one tablespoon of lemon juice
Preparation and application:
1.Ground the brown rice and turn it into powder (by using coffee grinder or by hand in a ceramic pot or mortar).
2.Mix the above ingredients together and stir them well.
3.Apply the mixture on dry hands, massage the outer part of each hand with circulatory movements and firmly, and then by gently pressing for a minute or two.Then wash your hands, dry them and apply the hand cream which you have previously chosen.
You can also use this mixture for removing calluses, because it softens them. You can do this peeling regularly, but not more than once a week.
Why is this working?
Rice has a calming effect on the skin,it is an excellent tool for peeling, and it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory features.
The juice made from agave cactus has great hydration and moisturizing powers, and it is an amazing peeling compound because it contains natural sugars that have efficient cleansing effects and at the same time help your skin to maintain moisturized.
Lemon is proven as effective remedy against age spots because it lightens the skin. It is rich in citric acid, vitamin C and AHA (alpha hydroxyl acid),and it also has anti-bacterial properties. Because of its bleaching properties it is great in reducing hyper pigmentation.
