What IS IT?
Sunspots occur normally after excessive sun exposure on an area of the skin and appear as flat brown spots. Sunspots are formed because the sun’s UV rays cause melanin cells, which are the cells responsible for producing pigment in your skin, to produce excess levels of melanin in an attempt to protect your skin from UV radiation. The resulting appearance looks like darker spots on your skin.
The more sensitive a person’s skin is to the sun, the earlier they will start developing these spots.In general sunspots start making their appearance from the age of 30-40 years. Existing sunspots will get darker when exposed to more sunlight. The areas where these spots most commonly form are the sides of your face, back of your hands and your chest because these areas get the majority of the sun exposure.
It is worthwhile to consult your doctor if you are concerned with your sun spots although sunspots can’t become cancerous, there may be underlying damage in the epidermis layer that only a doctor or dermatologist can identify.
