7. Horseradish


Horseradish is a fantastic herb that helps remove age spots and freckles and makes your skin spotless, thanks to its skin lightening properties.

  • You can make horseradish paste and apply it directly to the skin. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off. Use it a few times a week.
  • Another option is to grate a four-inch piece of horseradish with mix it in one-quarter cup of apple cider vinegar and allow the mixture to sit for two weeks. After two weeks, strain the mixture. Use a cotton ball to apply it on the affected skin. Follow this remedy three times a day for at least one month.

8. Papaya



Certain enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids present in papaya can help exfoliate your skin and reduce age spots, skin blemishes, acne and other skin problems. It will also give your skin a cleaner and brighter look.

  1. Rub one tablespoon of fresh grated papaya on the brown spots.
  2. Leave it on for about 20 minutes before washing the area with lukewarm water.
  3. Repeat twice daily until the brown spots fade away.

Note: As some people can be allergic to papaya, it is advisable to do a 24-hour patch test before following this remedy.

  1. ya, i used lemon but not working instead growing small hair over their… any advices for removing such brown spots…

  2. I have been using Baby Oil with aloe vera already in it and I grate the skin of a lemon or two and put it in the bottle and shake it every day. I was surprised to see the dark spots on my legs slowly fading. I’m so pleased. It takes a long time, but it certainly helps one’s self confidence to see them gradually fading. However, I have read a book that says baby oil, which is mineral oil, does not go into the skin as successfully as vegetable oil, e.g. olive oil, so I’m going to try that. Also, I have tried ground liquorice root added to this mixture and that seems to be working well too. Liquorice is a natural whitener.

  3. By the way, my dermatologist suggested a chemical peel for my lower legs at great expense. You can do a chemical peel yourself on your face or legs. Just look it up on the internet. You can also buy a kit. The clinic did a patch test with laser and chemical peel. The chemical peel worked the best. Be careful and it’s better to do a weak solution first. This is a faster method than the lemon juice, and you can do it over and over again. The chemical peel is done with aspirin tablets and a couple of other ingredients that you will probably have in your cupboard. make sure you use the correct measurements as you could get a nasty burn. I can’t remember all the ingredients (about 3) unless I look it up.

  4. Brown discolorations on the skin can be from certain perfumes used and when those areas are exposed to the sun, they will turn brown. Not all perfumes will do this and it’s better to be safe than sorry, so apply perfume to areas that will not be exposed to the sun.

  5. I used lemon juice beneath my eye, It dried the skin and gave me wrinkles. I’m Just so Mad. Don’t do the lemon juice dry skin is Bad!

  6. I’m 21 and I’m breaking out in age spots , liver spots , brown spots of every kind !! I’m a lifeguard and I sit in the sun for ten hours and i put pounds of sunscreen on to prevent this but its not working !! I recently just got a brown age mark the size of a quarter on my arm and I’m planning on telling people its just a birth mark. This is not a pretty situation!!!!! HELP!! And god bless everyone with age mark situations! gotta love life!! 🙂

  7. I have got horrible brown spots on my face…below eyes and also in the nose. It seems darker outside more than inside..I feel so bad abt this..tried many remedies but failed..ryt now I’m trying sandalwood. let’s see what it shows…hope it will fee effective. Aloevera & lemon juice has made it litter bit lighter than before..but I’m not happy with the results..

  8. Go at night, go in a hot tub, to get rid of the brown dots on your hand I had them the past nights, and it got the majority of it off, but the rest use your other hand to rub it off.

  9. I’ve spent hundreds on prescriptions written by dermatologists, including very expensive ‘Blue Light’ painful treatment that promised to remove all actinic kertosis brown spots. Blue Light treatment did NOTHING to dissipate the persistent ‘masque of pregnancy’ brown splotches above my upper lip that I’ve had most of my life; I’m 65. With some time and nothing to lose, I applied ACV directly on facial brown spots, twice a day for a week. After day three it stung a lot but continued for another 4 days. Area progressed from bright red to a brown crusting over – looked very ugly. When I couldn’t stand it any longer, I let the spots heal over and stopped the ACV. It’s tempting to pick at it, but better results if, over time it slowly comes off in tiny flecks when showering. I continued to apply ACV for the next month and after about 6 months, ALL DARK SPOTS ARE GONE, and my skin looks GREAT – NO brown spots. For less than $4.00 accomplished the same as over a thousand dollars spent at dermatologist. Consult dermatologist to make sure you have nothing more severe than surface AK’s and not basal cells. Hope this is helpful! Thank you ACV blogs!!!!!

  10. What is the ACV that BB spoke about? My legs r full of brown spots and I’ve tried those laser treatments for years and nothing worked !!!! Cost me a fortune, had to stop wasting my money, Are there any oils that work?
