Reverse the Signs of Aging: Bring on the Carbs!

10 Aug

Age Spots are Inevitable

This could be the cheapest face peel that is out of the market. I was watching a medical show the other day and they touched on the subject of best home remedies and one of the tips surprised me and I just had to share. Time to get reduce those less-than-pretty age spots with my personal favorite carb, potatoes.

Aveeno SPF 70 Face LotionAge spots are caused by sun damage and the easiest way to prevent these  spots is by using sun screen. I like to use Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion for face with SPF 70. It isn’t heavy and doesn’t leave my face oily. I tend to break out easily, so I am very picky about the products I put on my face. Dark Spots also begin to appear more as you age because your body continually grows weaker and doesn’t have the ability to fight free radical damage. So the healthier you are, drink more water, eat better and exercise, the less you will be affected by these Dark Spots.

However, Age spots are inevitable and there are some procedures you can do to reduce the dark pigmentation and reverse the signs of age spots. One procedure you can get is a Photofacial. However, these can be a bit pricey ($500) but they do work. I have recently received a photofacial and I will post details about it later. There are also many creams out on the market, but they can cost upwards of $50. But in this tough economy, no one can just spend willy nilly. Luckily, God gave us potatoes which contain catecholase, which helps to lighten the skin.

100% Natural Skin Lightener

Step 1: Wash and chop the potatoes in pieces, including the skin

Step 2: Blend the chopped potatoes in a blender to make a puree

Step 3: Apply potato puree onto a clean face, focus on problem areas

Step 4: Continually massage puree into skin for five minutes, and leave on for 30 minutes

Step 5: Rinse puree off with warm water until clean

Bonus! It is an all-natural home remedy, can be used on all problem areas all over your body and you can get a potato for less than $1! Happy peeling!
