Horseradish, Lemon Reduce Age Spots
Years of sun exposure and free radical damage can lead to flat brown spots on your hands, face, and body. While age spots are harmless, most people consider them an unwelcome sign of aging.
“Age spots are really sun-induced freckles,” said Robert E. Clark, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Dermatologic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Unit at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. aThey commonly appear on the backs of the hands.a
You can also see them along the shoulders (where someone has had significant sun exposure) and on the face. Age spots are common in older people but someone who’s had significant sun exposure can get them in their late twenties, thirties and forties.
Even a little bit of sun worshipping can cause age spots later in life. Sunlight contains ultraviolet rays that cause suntans and burns. As time goes by, tanning causes more pigment to be deposited in the skin. This eventually leads to flat, brown skin lesions known as age spots. They’re also called liver spots or sun spots.
