The Right Skin Care Regimen Can Fade Age and Dark Spots
Age spots are the areas of hyperpigmentation that form as a result of years of exposure to UV rays. Age spots appear as dark spots on your skin that are typically a brown or even black in color. They are most common in the areas of your skin that are often exposed to the sun such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
Even with sun protection, UV exposure over time damages the melanocyte cells which produce the skin pigment melanin. These damaged cells then overproduce melanin, leading to age spots scattered across your skin.
The good news is that you can fade age spots for greater clarity in your skin. Combining a skin lightening agent with a skin care regimen that’s rich in antioxidants as well as AHAs and BHAs. The AHAs and BHAs will help to exfoliate away darker skin and increase cell turn over which can lead to fewer and lighter age spots.
