When you think of visible signs of aging, you probably think of wrinkles and sagging skin. But age spots (commonly referred to as liver spots) are actually one of the most common signs of aging. These unsightly spots can appear as early as your 40s—or even earlier if you’ve had a great deal of exposure to the sun. Those of us living in this beautiful “Sunshine State” are the most susceptible! Age spots most commonly appear on areas of the skin that receive heightened exposure to the sun: your face, shoulders, forearms and the back of your hands.
