Age spots appear because of certain differences in the levels of melanin in your body. They tend to appear on areas of your body that were most exposed to the sun. Melanin is the pigment that gives color to your skin, hair and eyes and because of those differences in its levels, you can experience age spots on your hand, arms, forehead, face and shoulders, but they are actually harmless.

The best way for you to find out the nature of your skin spots is to consult a specialist when you first notice abnormal changes in your skin tone. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic we have specialists who can provide you all the information you need during a specialized consultation that will also determine which private treatment you should undergo.

There are ways to prevent age spots and ways to prevent them from spreading. Avoiding the sun light as much as possible is the most efficient way to keep age spots from appearing on your skin. Applying minimum SPF 20 sunscreen is very important because the UV rays can affect you all year long. Diets rich in antioxidants, and consuming foods that contain beta-carotene, as well as vitamins C and E help. During the summer when the sun light is more powerful you should consider covering your car window glass with UVA-protecting film.

A few home remedies can prevent age spots from spreading. Apple cider vinegar works as a skin exfoliant and freshly-squeezed lemon juice can leave your skin spotless if applied regularly. Yogurt, papaya fruit and pineapple are also effective home remedies for age spots.
