Tips for removing age spots

The uneven skin tone or pigmentation you notice on your skin is called age spots, liver spots or solar lentigo and are a consequence of sun exposure and the skin’s natural aging process because of the stimulation of excess skin pigment or melanin.

The main factors which trigger age spots are age and sun exposure or damage. These age spots are not restricted to only the facial area, but are also commonly seen on the shoulders, neck, décolletage, back of hands and practically on any sun-exposed areas.

How to control ageing of hands

It’s unfortunate but not many realize that their hands show signs of aging much faster than the face. While most people concentrate on getting rid of signs of aging on their faces, their hands quickly develop thin, dry skin, age spots and a veiny look, which are all signs of aging.

The reduced production of collagen and elastin is a part of the natural aging process which leads to dry hands with thin skin, especially on the back of hands. The skin may also appear semi-transparent with the further loss of elasticity. To top all of this, external factors and environment can lead to a rough skin texture, age spots and pigmentation on the back of hands.
