Age spots, or the brown spots on the skin are not scary, but they can significantly lower the self-confidence. In most cases, they appear on the face, hands, shoulders, and limbs, and become more in number over the years.
The big brown spots on the skin are the first symptom of aging.
However, we will suggest a simple but effective natural trick to get rid of age spots. Yet, in order to prevent their occurrence and eliminate them, you need to know the exact cause of their appearance at the first place.
Age spots are most often a result of the excessive exposure to sunlight and UV rays, regardless of whether you have been exposed to tanning without using sunscreen, or you have used a tanning bed.
The more you spend time tanning the faster melanin appears in the body, which gives the darky shade of the skin. However, the dark tan disappears, but the brown spots remain on the skin, as melanin has been overactive in those skin areas.
If you wonder if these spots can endanger your health, we must disappoint you that the answer is affirmative. They do not necessarily lead to cancer, but make sure you keep in mind the following, as regular self-examinations are the best way to prevent serious problems:
– If the spots get tender and red, you should immediately visit your doctor.

– Examine the spots and notice their color in case it changes and it gets darker.
– Examine the brown spots and see if they are changing or growing in any way.
If you are feeling worried about these brown spots, consult your dermatologist about them. You can also perform the test “ABCDE’s of Melanoma’’ and examine the problem.
