5. Age Spots and Discolored Skin Tone: Discolored skin tone, or hyperpigmentation, can result from a variety of factors and increasing age is just one of them. Excess melanin production, which can occur due to hormonal changes in the body as you age, can make areas of your skin darker.
Apart from age, excessive sun exposure, skin injuries or burns, emotional stress or contact with certain chemicals can also cause hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation and dark spots due to aging are usually visible on the face, arms, back and hands.
Rub some fresh lemon juice on your skin using a cotton ball. Allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then wash it off with water. Do this twice daily.
Also, before going to bed, apply fresh aloe vera gel on the hyperpigmented skin and leave it on overnight. Rinse it off in the morning.
Protecting your skin from the sun by using a good quality sunscreen lotion can make a big difference, too.
