Effective skin treatments

against age spots

What causes age spots?


Age spots actually have nothing to do with how old you are. And another common name, 'liver spots', was derived from the fact that these spots were once, incorrectly, believed to be caused by liver problems. But age spots have to do with how long you've been in the sun, hence the synonym 'sun spots'.

The amount of melanin pigment you have, depends your skin colour. Especially fair-skinned people have almost no melanin, while dark skin does a much better job of protecting itself from the sun. When the sun 'attacks' light-skinned people, their body will, over time, respond with hyperpigmentation, a topical darkening of the skin caused by an increase in melanin.

These age spots are very common in adults over 40, not only because they have been exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, but also because their skin is less able to recover from sun exposure.
