Age spots often seem to appear when you would least expect them. Even if you are now doing everything you can to protect yourself from the effects of the sun, prior sun damage from your younger years and other forms of pollution may be acting together to create brown or black spots on your skin. These spots usually appear on those areas most often kissed by the sun, such as your hands and shoulders. However, they are most disturbing to your peace of mind when they show up on your face.
Signs of Aging & How to Avoid Them
Facial age spots can appear almost anywhere across the face, from the forehead to the cheeks. These spots are usually flat and are not raised like moles are. While they may look hideous to you, they are actually the body’s natural protective response to sun damage. They may also appear due to your genetics or poor liver function. This is why they are sometimes called liver spots.
