Also called Liver Spots appear in people over 40 and come in the form of flat brown or black spots on your face, hands, arms and shoulders. Not to be confused with Hyperpigmentation. Age Spots are an all too visible reminder of the passing of time.
The causes of age spots
The ageing process is the main reason and the amount of exposure to the sun when you were younger. As you get older your skin is less effective at regeneration, is thinner and more fragile. If you have fair skin or have loved spending your years exposed to direct sunlight and UV rays for that sun kissed tan, then you are likely to form age spots as you age. You may inherit age spots from your parents or family members, as they are known to be genetic also. Age spots do not determine your age, more the consequence of years of exposure to sun, which develop into age spots, as you get older.
Treatment of age spots
These are often an inevitable part of ageing, you can spend your elderly years covering them up with make up or you can treat them with active skincare products with brightening and whitening ingredients and in conjunction with laser skin treatments.
