WHAT IS IT?
Many people say they suffer from sun spots, but what exactly are these so-called sunspots, and what causes them? Sunspots are flat brown spots that appear on your skin after excessive sun exposure on the area.
Sunspots are formed due to the fact that UV rays cause melanin cells which are responsible for producing pigment/melanin in your skin to produce higher than normal levels of melanin in an attempt to protect your skin cells from UV radiation. The result is the appearance of darker spots on your skin.
The more sun sensitive your skin, the earlier you will start developing these spots but in most cases, they start making their appearance from the age of 30-40 years. When an existing sunspot has been exposed to sunlight, it will only get darker. The most common areas for sunspots to develop are the sides of your face, your chest, and back of your hands because these areas get most of the sun exposure.
If you notice that you have quite a few sun spots on your skin, it’s best to get your skin looked at by a doctor, as this indicates that your skin has had excessive sun exposure. Although sunspots can’t become cancerous, there might still be underlying damage in your skin that only a doctor or dermatologist will be able to pick up.
