As we get older, we’re subjected to ailments that are directly correlated to aging. Sunspots, also known as age spots and liver spots, are one of those aliments. While there’s no definitive reason as to why sunspots develop, research supports that an excessive production of melanin is to blame.

Melanin is produced as a response to Ultraviolet Radiation, therefore the more time spent in the sun or in the tanning bed, the more likely you are to develop sunspots. Genetics can also play a role in the formation of these spots as well. For example, those with fair skin have a genetic structure that makes their complexion prone to the development of these pesky blotches. Sunspots are very common in those over 50, but can appear earlier if sun exposure is consistent. These spots can appear on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, scalp, arms, legs, hands and vary in size and color.

Moderating your time in the sun, making sure to apply sunscreen, and wearing clothing and sunglasses that prevent sun exposure are obvious ways to reduce the chance of developing sunspots, but you may wonder “What can be done if I already have sunspots?”.
