Combat age spots naturally with these foods

food 

Also known as "liver spots," age spots have nothing to do with health changes to the liver and everything to do with the skin and its exposure to sunlight as well as the natural process of aging. Although the Mayo Clinic says that they "are harmless and don't need treatment," (1) many people seek to remove the flat, colored skin spots via surgery or using creams that promise to diminish their sometimes unsightly appearance.

Still, there are those who have deeper concerns about age spots, saying they indicate that the body is out of whack. For example, one raw food expert writes on the blog BeautifulonRaw.com, that age spots are telltale signs that the body has toxins and that such outward signs "of deteriorating appearance should be viewed as warning signs of degeneration taking place inside." (2)

Many natural foods exist to help fight the appearance of age spots, so other questionable and costly measures need not be considered. 

Best foods to eat to fight age spots

Dr. James F. Balche, a Certified Nutritional Consultant who is a member of the American Medical Association and a natural health advocate, suggests eating more raw vegetables (3). He advises that upwards of 50 percent of diets should involve raw foods, since they include nutrients that boost skin health while also getting rid of toxins in the body that can contribute to the development of age spots.

Oranges in particular are suggested to promote skin health. Dr. Balche explains that their high vitamin C content helps repair cell damage in the skin as well as prevent any new damage from developing in the first place (3). It's also good to know that the George Mateljan Foundation's web site, The World's Healthiest Foods, says that oranges have been shown to fight certain cancers, including skin cancer (4).
