The End of Age Spots

By Annabelle Roylance

Many people struggle with age spots and wonder how to get rid of them.

They are a form of sun damage that can become more visible as we get older. One way to avoid getting these freckle-like spots is to wear sunscreen (SPF15 or higher) every time you go outdoors.
Here is what the MayoClinic has to say about them:

Age spots — also called liver spots and solar lentigines — are flat gray, brown or black spots. They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms — areas most exposed to the sun. Though age spots are very common in adults older than age 40, they can affect younger people as well.

True age spots are harmless and don’t need treatment, but they can look like cancerous growths. For cosmetic reasons, age spots can be lightened with skin-bleaching products or removed. However, preventing age spots — by avoiding the sun and using sunscreen — may be the easiest way to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and to avoid these dark skin spots.

Once you have them, some people get good results with a skin-lightening cream, but you must be consistent with its use, and be patient, as results may take several weeks.

If you are plagued with Melasma or the appearance of brown patches on your skin you can use a skin lightening cream to help. Many manufacturers now produce skin lightening creams using natural ingredients that are highly effective and do not contain controversial hydroquinone. Kojic acid and licorice work well along with more sophisticated ingredients like Alpha-Arbutin. Combined, these ingredients often generate better results than products that contain hydroquinone without the risks.

One of the best skin lightening products on the market is Meladerm. With almost 12,000 likes on Facebook and thousands of positive Meladerm reviews, it’s obvious that it works.

Here is just one review:
