Age spots generally start appearing on the skin of people who are over 50 years of age. These are known with different names such as liver spots, black or brow spots etc. They differ in size and appear on various spots of your skin such as hands, face, arms and shoulders.
There are various theories behind age spots. Even doctors wont give you a straight answer they could be caused by aging, excessive production of skin pigmentation or ultra violet rays.
The continuous exposure to UV rays is the most possible cause according to a skin specialist. Melanin, pigmentation ever present in the upper epidermis of skin is responsible for coloration of our skin. When our skin is exposed to Ultra Violet light the production increases greatly and results in the spots for skin protection. That is the natural phenomenon.
A Tanning bed is considered a cause by some doctors.
Fair-skinned people are more likely to develop age spots earlier than others.
