Brown spots, Sunspots and Age spots
Brown spots, age spots and sunspots are refer to the appearance of yellowish or brownish spots on the skin particularly on the face, hands, forearms, chest and shoulders. These brown spots tend to appear after the age of 40 and are part of the aging process. They are harmless brown spots or age spots but they affect the cosmetic appearance of the skin and are often unwanted. The brown spots are often the result of the skin trying to protect itself from too much sun exposure by producing a lot of melanin. Melanin is then deposited in the skin in an uneven fashion resulting in the brown spots over the skin.
There are many treatments for brown spots, age spots and sunspots and are the same type of treatments as for freckles above. Brown spots appear on any skin type and are not restricted to just fair skinned, light haired people. They differ from freckles in that they are not inherited but develop over time as a result of aging.
