Causes and Treatment for Age Spots

Researchers have found that Age Spots (also called Liver Spots) is a result of over exposure to sun. It is normally found on those parts of the body which are exposed to sun like the face and back of hands etc.

Causes:

When the body is exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun, it gradually produces Melanin. Melanin starts to accumulate in a particular spot of the skin. In a gradual manner, hyper pigmentation takes place in the area where Melanin has accumulated and the area, including the area surrounding it, turns black in color. This is called Age Spot (liver Spot).

Cure:

Age Spots can be cured and the skin will return to its natural color. The first suggestion to prevent Age Spots is to avoid exposure to sun as far as possible. Apply sun cream at least half an hour before you venture out in the sun. Experts suggest that sun cream should be used during winter season also because even in winter season, people are exposed to sun rays, of course to a lesser degree.
