What are age spots?
Age spots, also known as liver spots, brown spots, sun damage or lentigos. Age spots are blemishes on the skin associated with ageing and exposure to UV radiation from the sun. They range in colour from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun.
Why Do We Get Age Spots
Age Spots are located in areas most often exposed to the sun. The sunlight stimulates your pigment cells to manufacture melanin. This is not only responsible for your tan but also the unwanted dark spots. Age spots usually occur in adults over 40 years but younger people can also be prone to them if they spend a lot of time exposed to the sun.

How To Prevent Age Spots
There are some tips you can follow to prevent age spots from developing on your skin:
Use a SPF of 30 or higher when you are outdoors, whether in the sun or not, as UVA light levels can cause damage throughout the year. Reapply every two hours if you are swimming or perspiring.
Change your diet
Eating antioxidant food which can be found in fruit – especially intensely coloured fruit such as berries or blackcurrants – and vegetables.
Limit sun exposure
Avoid the sun between 10am and 2pm. The sun’s rays are most intense during this time.
