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. Daily sun protection for prevention of additional age spots is key…but what about diminishing the ones you already have? Here are some suggestions:
- Use products that offer strong, broad spectrum protection (think high SPF rating) every day. A daily facial moisturizer with SPF like Murad’s Essential-C Day Moisturizer is non-greasy and refreshing, and provides daily protection from the damaging effects of the sun.
- Eat your fruits & vegetables! The antioxidants in fruits & vegetables help fight against free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging.
- Change up your home care to include products like Murad’s Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Gel which works to diminish the visible signs of sun damage.
If you’re bothered by these pesky little spots, get a facial! Our Sun Undone Facial gives your skin a topical boost through the use of antioxidant-rich Vitamin-C products that work to restore, rejuvenate and reverse the effects of sun damage. Preventative care is always the best, but age spots alone are not dangerous, just unsightly. As a rule, should you notice any significant or questionable changes in your skin, alert your physician or dermatologist. *Click HERE to schedule your Sun Undone Facial!
