Age Spots are technically known as “Solar Lentigines”. They are well-defined, uniformly coloured areas of brown or grey pigment.
Age Spots will generally show up on the hands, face, neck, and chest.
Age spots are caused primarily by years of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun. The use of commercial tanning lamps and tanning beds can also contribute to the development of age spots.
Avoiding exposure to the sun and the usage of tanning beds will help prevent age spots. Applying a minimum of SPF 30 on a daily and regular basis to the face and body will protect the skin from sun exposure and heat.
Age spots are very common in adults aged 50 and over. But, younger people can develop them too, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun.
