Full Answer

The Organic Facts and Top 10 Home Remedies websites contain a wealth of information on which natural treatments work best for softening, lightening and removing age spots. Both sites list many of the same natural ingredients, such as lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and aloe vera, but the two lists differ when it comes to the recommended procedures for mixing and applying each treatment. For example, apple cider vinegar can be mixed with blended onion as recommended by Organic Facts, or it can be mixed with water or orange juice as suggested by Top 10 Home Remedies.

Unlike the other two websites, NowLoss.com does not exclusively feature natural remedies. In the article "37 Tips to Remove Age Spots," 22 of those tips are natural remedies, 11 tips recommend products that can lighten skin (such as alpha hydroxy acids and vitamin E), and the remaining four tips describe the professional procedures that can rapidly remove age spots (such as cryotherapy and dermabrasion). Several of the natural items on this list are not mentioned on the other two websites, such as turmeric, saffron, garbanzo beans, orange peel, and less common natural treatments such as jaiphal and gotu kola.
