Getting Rid of Freckles/sun Spots?

Hello! The freckles I would get from being out in the sun in the summer used to disappear the rest of the year. Well, now that I'm in my 30's I have noticed that they are here to stay. I know there's the more expensive route of having something professional done with a dermatologist, but has anyone had any success with over-the-counter creams (like skin lighteners or bleach) or even home remedies (I did a search online and read of several, like using lemon juice). Just wondering about your experiences. Thank you!

Hi J.. Yes - you're correct - there is nothing permanent you can do to remove the spots unless you go the dermatologist route. However, I use a product called NutriMinC RE9 (it's Arbonne's anti-aging skincare line)...the eye creme has kojic acid in it, which is a lightener. I started using this botanically-based skincare system last Summer and even at that time of year I saw a lightening in the freckles/sun spots. I have even used the eye creme on my nose to assist with those spots.:) Plus - the overall appearance of my skin has improved!

It's not a miracle in a jar - nothing really is - but if you are interested in trying it, let me know. I can get you a sample of everything so you can try it in your home for a couple of days. Then, if you decide you want to order it, there is a 45 day money-back guarantee, which is great so you can try it out for an extended amount of time w/o the risk of losing money. Let me know how I can help.

J., I have had several customers with freckles and sun spots on their face, chest, back and arms. The Marykay Timewise set (facial cleanser or facial bar w/moisturizer) has even out their skin tone. Our microdermabrasion set has speed up the process as the aluminum crystal oxides (equivalent to the dermatologist office) will scrub away the dead skin cells quickly to renew unspotted skin, if you will.

Try Mary Kay's Even COmplexion Essence. I use it to keep my skin even after being out in the sun, but I have heard of people with age spots on their hands using this product and seeing them disapper. The same may work for you?! To learn more about the product go to:

Hi J.,

We have several products for you! The first is our pigment highlighter pen, its so easy to use and inexpensive. You just apply where you see sun spots. We also have other items that are more of a long term use, but do prevent future sun spots from forming, and also help with wrinkles, etc.

Please check out my webpage, and email me if you would like a sample to try before you buy. ;-)


ps...make sure your sunscreen is UVA/UVB! Ours is, and its on sale this month too! ;-)

Hi J.,

I have the same problem and asked a good friend after trying several beauty products with no results. She recommended "Concha Nacar" #3. You can buy it at certain Walmarts. This product is made by Perlop Cosmetics, Inc. out of Santa Monica, CA. Their website is www.perlop.com or www.conchanacar.com. Good Luck!

I'm not sure about the freckles, but i see that you are a transcriptionist at home... I am trying to find some work at home. I am currently a part time legal secretary. what kind of transcribing do you do? medical? or is it legal? I'd love to try to stay home... I have 2 girls, 3.5 and an almost one year old. thanks!

Hey J.,

I previously used Rodan and Fields Dermatologists Reverse line to rid of sunspots that I noticed on my face. It was very effective and a good way to get the Dermatologists treatment without going to the office and paying lots of money. I am a nurse.. I can understand that!!
Anyway, I don't have to use it anymore and have switched to the Anti-Age (I'm 36) and Unblemish (for my occasional breakouts) products for my regular skin care.
I haven't heard about using lemons but I will check it out with the R&F nurse to see what she thinks and let you know!

Good Luck and let me know if I can be of any assistance!
