Age spots, otherwise known as liver spots or lentigines, are flat dark spots that appear on the skin. They are generally found on the face, shoulders and arms as these areas are often exposed to the sun.
Age spots are very common in adults over the age of 50. However, younger generations are known to experience them too, especially if they spend an extensive amount of time in the sun on a regular basis.
Age spots are not harmful to the body and do not necessarily need treatment. However, those who are conscious of their overall look can undergo treatment with skin bleaching products and complete removal.
As always, the easiest way to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and avoid gaining age spots is to use a high factor sunscreen and avoid spending long periods of time in the sun.
