To treat sunspots, you do not require plenty of this sap, as only one drop of it on the affected area is sufficient to treat the blemish. Initially, the sunspot will fester and become somewhat ugly looking. Subsequently, you will develop a scab and this will be followed by appearance of fresh pinkish skin. You can apply fresh aloe vera gel on the new skin with a view to facilitate the healing process.
