Are you desperate to reduce and fade those annoying age spots? Tried just about every expensive whitening cream on TV yet have still not found the solution to your age spot problem? Well, it is about time that you know more about age spots and how to deal with them.

How do age spots develop?

Also called liver spots, are mainly caused by excessive production of melanin. Melanin, as you know, is what gives skin its pigmentation and protects it from harmful UV rays. When exposed to too much sunlight, melanin production increases in order to provide more protection to your skin. Imbalance in the production of melanin due to genetics or factors such as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the occurrence of age spots.

Today, there are various technologies that can remove age spots. You have an option to have laser treatment, acid treatment, or even go through procedures such as skin freezing. However, they either cost too much money, or are just too painful to go through.

The fact is, there is simpler and more convenient option to remove age spots. These can fade and lighten with the use of a good whitening cream that contains the right ingredients. Be wary though those common whitening creams today can contain harmful chemicals such as acids that can cause serious, long term negative side effects, most especially if not used properly. Take note again that I mentioned “good whitening” cream – those that contain natural ingredients proven to work effectively yet gently.

What ingredients then would you look for to make sure you get only the best whitening cream? Today, the newest breakthrough ingredient in removing age or liver spots is called Extrapone Nutgrass. This ingredient was first developed by a trusted German company (Symrise), and was originally an anti-irritant. Skin experts were pleasantly surprised to find out later about its potent whitening properties.

Scientific studies and clinical trials have revealed that extrapone nutgrass is effective in inhibiting melanin production by about 40%. It is also safe to use, so you can be sure that your age spots can lighten naturally, and your skin will surely become whiter, brighter and healthier. Unlike harsh ingredients many whitening creams contain, extrapone nutgrass has been proven to bring absolutely no harsh or harmful side effects.

There are also other excellent natural ingredients that can aid in reducing white spots and promote a younger-looking, healthier skin. This includes Phytessence Wakame, a special variety of sea kelp from Japan, which is loaded with natural compounds that can keep your skin soft, nourished and smooth; Cynergy TK, which can make your skin firm and elastic by stimulating production of Collagen; and Nanobelle H-EQ10 which is a potent anti-oxidant that can be absorbed deep into the skin to fight harmful free radicals.

Now that you are informed about what whitening creams must contain to effectively reduce age spots, make sure you choose only the best and most effective product that will fade your age spots away.
