Natural remedies for all ailments, including cosmetic corrections such as fading age spots, have been passed down from generation to generation.  Using vinegar to fade age spots is an old folk remedy, but there are many more that countless people insist are effective. If you are looking for new methods that are natural, here is a collection of folk remedies that were gathered from various books published on the subject.  Keep in mind that just because it's natural, doesn't make it safe for everyone.

Vinegar and Onion Juice Solution

In his book, Dr. Earl Mindell's Amazing Apple Cider Vinegar, Dr Mindell creates a fading age spot solution by mixing together 1 teaspoon of fresh onion juice with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. Rubbing the solution on the age spot twice daily will result in faded age spots within a few weeks.

Yogurt and Honey-the Natural Bleach

According to The Complete Guide to Natural Cures: Effective Holistic Treatments for Everything from Allergies to Wrinkles by Deborah Yost, there are several home remedies available in your grocer's dairy section that may do the trick to fade those age spots.  Ms. Yost suggests mixing one part yogurt and one part honey to create a salve that should be rubbed onto the age spot, allowed to dry, and then removed. Daily treatments should result in faded age spots.

Fresh Pineapple the Magic Enzyme

According to Ageless Natural Beauty by Sally Freeman, fresh pineapple contains a protein digesting enzyme called bromelain that will work to reduce age spots.  Ms. Freeman suggests rubbing the affected area three times a day with a fresh slice of pineapple.

Vitamin E for Prevention

In his book Twenty-five Natural Ways to Lower Blood Pressure, author James Scala suggests taking vitamin E as a course of action to prevent age spots.  The premise behind ingesting vitamin E is that it prevents the oxidation of essential oils in the body. 

Dandelion Eau de Parfum

Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty from the Garden: More Than 200 Do-It-Yourself Beauty Recipes & Garden Ideas suggests a homemade dandelion ointment straight from the garden.  She suggests mixing ¼ cup of dandelion leaves with 2 tablespoons of castor oil and 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil.  Rub it onto the age spot daily and within a few weeks it will begin to fade.

Lemon Juice Magic

Straight lemon juice is yet another natural remedy for age spots according to Patty Moosbrugger, author of Lemon Magic: 200 Beauty and Household Uses for Lemons and Lemon Juice. The juice of the fresh lemon is acidic enough to gently slough off skin cells and will remove or lighten age spots when applied directly to the spot with a cotton ball twice daily. Results will be visible in 6-8 weeks.

Quote: "The juice of a fresh lemon is acidic enough to safely peel off the upper layer of skin, which will remove or lighten some age spots. Rub it on with a cotton ball twice daily where the age spots are, and in six to eight weeks, they should begin to fade away.""
