What are age spots?
Age spots are tan, light brown, or dark brown spots that come in areas of sun exposure and get darker with sun exposure over time.
The name is a bit of a misnomer as they can show up early—like in your late teens or 20s—but you do get more over time.
What causes age spots?
They are a mixture of genetics and sun exposure, which explains why they appear in areas of sun exposure and get darker with sun exposure over time.
Age spots are related to cumulative sun exposure, or the total amount of sun exposure over a lifetime.
How to treat age spots?
