Age spots (sometimes also refered to as liver spots) are something that no woman ever looks forward to getting. While they are not painful or a health risk, the appearance of them can make some women very self conscious. This page will tell you how you can fade the appearance of these spots with all natural ingredients.
What do they look like and what causes them?
Agespots are brownish flat skin discolorations that vary in size and shape. They can start to appear in your 40's, but when they begin to appear really has to do with the amount of sun exposure your skin has had. It's not actually age that causes these spots, it is how much sun your skin has been exposed to over the years.
Our skin has 'melanim pigment' which absorbs sunlight and helps protect our skin from the sun's rays. As we grow older our skin's ability to protect itself begins to deteriorate from over exposure to the sun which results in abnormal pigment in the form of agespots.
They most commonly appear on the face, shoulders and back of the hands which are parts of our body exposed to the sun the most. If you are fair or light skinned you are more likely to develop agespots.
If you have any suspicious spots, moles or discolorations, or if you notice a change in color or shape of any lesion on your skin always consult your doctor.
Can you prevent agespots?
Sunblock, Sunblock, Sunblock! Preventing agespots is actually just common sense. The more you protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays the less likely you will develop these brown spots. If you already have agespots you can certainly stop or slow the arrival of any new ones. Protecting your skin from the sun will also slow down the wrinkles too and lessen your chance of developing skin cancer.
Always protect your skin from the sun with a good natural sunscreen and limit the time you spend in it.
