Age spots, also known as liver spots, appear as dark blotches or spots of hyperpigmentation on the skin of your face and body. These dark spots often begin to develop as your skin ages and are extremely common in people over the age of 40. Dark spots are most evident in areas of the body that experience sun exposure. According to Health 911, a single 400 I.U. vitamin E capsule can help reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin when applied daily.

Step 1

Shake one vitamin E gel capsule out of the bottle and into the palm of your hand. Puncture the vitamin E gel capsule with a sewing needle.

Step 2

Pick-up the vitamin E gel capsule with the fingers of one hand. Squeeze the capsule, releasing the vitamin E oil onto the fingertips of your other hand.

Step 3

Rub the vitamin E oil onto your dark spots, gently. A thin layer of vitamin E oil is all that is necessary. Repeat the process once daily.
