According to the American Academy of Dermatology, age spots are formed due to prolonged exposure to the Sun.
Sun rays tend to cause deposition of melanin at a localized area, which leads to the appearance of age spots.
Everyone hates age spots, especially age spots on the face! Well, the cosmetic industry loves them; just look at all the expensive creams and lotions on the shelves. Rich women used to bathe in milk to get rid of the spots. Age spots (“Solar lentigo”) are also known as liver spots. They often appear at fair-skinned people who spent too much time in the sun, suffering skin damage. However, the spots can appear on people of all skin types.
After 40, the skin is unable to regenerate as rapidly.
There are many clinical medications for treating age spots, but these can be harsh and contain chemicals that may be detrimental to your health in other ways. Fortunately, there are several home remedies for age spots, which certainly do a good job in eliminating the age spots. However, these spots take quite some time to form and thus, to erase them completely also takes time.
