This COMMON Ingredient Can Easily Remove Age Spots!
Age spots or liver spots are brown, tan, flat or black spots that appear on our skin. Their size can vary and we can see them most commonly on the hands, face, shoulders or arms. Those are areas of the body that get the most exposure on the sun. You may also connect age spots to adults over the age of 50. But there are cases when young people can easily get them too, particularly if they spend a lot of time in the sun.
If we are exposed through the years to ultraviolet light from the sun, or we have used a tanning bed we can easily develop age spots. Melanin is the pigment in the skin upper layer that actually gives our skin its normal color. The rays fasten the production of melanin when UV light are in contact with the skin. They create a tan on the skin to help protect deeper layers of skin from damage that UV rays can cause. Age spots appear on skin areas that have had prolonged or frequent sun exposure. The melanin production in these areas is in particularly high concentrations.
So what’s the best protection of age spots?
It’s very simple: Proper protection from the sun.
Anyone can have or develop them. But if you have light-colored or fair skin, you are more likely to get age spots. They can also appear if you had intense or frequent sun exposure in the past or even sunburns.
True age spots aren’t harmful. But if you notice spots that have changed in appearance, go to see a professional or doctor. It may be actually a sign of melanoma.
Go to see a doctor or health care professional if you notice that your age spot:
- is rapidly increasing in size
- is darkly pigmented
- has an irregular border
- has an unusual color combination
- is accompanied by redness, itching, tenderness or bleeding.
