No one likes being welcomed into middle age by age spots. They seem to be that one sign of aging that you just can’t hide. When you’re getting up there in years, taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your health.
Age spots, also called liver spots or solar lentigines, are tan or brown spots on the skin that result from hyperpigmentation of the skin due to excessive sun exposure. Their appearance is usually restricted to areas normally prone to sun exposure like your hands, face, neck, shoulders and arms.
