Prolonged exposure to the sun may result in the appearance of patches of discoloration on the skin, commonly known as sunspots. When your skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun, the skin produces more melanin to protect itself and counteract the damages in collagen fibers from these UV rays. The repeated excessive exposure to the sun leads to the formation of melanin clusters that may result in sun spots and hyperpigmentation. These sunspots are also referred to as age or liver spots, though they have nothing to do with the lever and may have very little to do with the age. These spots are often or gray in color and may accompany other sign of sun damage like dry skin or wrinkles on the skin.
These sunspots may vary in shape, color, and size. These spots mostly occur on those parts of the body that get more exposure to sun such as face, hands, shoulders and at the back of the neck. Fair skin people are more likely to get these spots in comparison with those who have a dark skin color. In some cases, hormonal changes, puberty, and blockages of skin glands may cause these spots. These sunspots can make your skin look ugly and old. There are various ways to get rid of sun spots but natural lightening treatments are safer and cheap than invasive treatments. To get rid of these sunspots you need a lot of patience. Before discussing the treatment let us discuss some preventive measures.
