A 40-year-old woman is distressed at the early onset of “age” or “liver spots” on her hands, face, neck, shoulders and legs. These discoloured patches of skin are sometimes indented, sometimes raised and always dry. How can she get rid of them or stop more from appearing? The general consensus is that they’re called liver spots for a reason. To relieve your overstressed liver, a change of diet is in order; cut out meat, dairy products, caffeine and alcohol (or any combination thereof) and increase intake of water, fresh fruits, and vegetables. Make sure you get enough GLA oils (found in blackcurrants/evening primrose) too. Revenol, an antioxidant product by Neways, got rave reviews from one reader. For a topical solution, another reader recommends applying the following homemade cure: mix 2 teaspoons of onion juice with 1 teaspoon of vinegar.
