Age Spots (also known as sunspots, liver spots and lentigines) are small, flat dark sections on the skin that appear across various parts of the body. The appearance can vary in size and shape, and typically occur in areas that are in direct sunlight.

You can help prevent age spots by regularly using sunscreen and avoiding the sun. Age spots may affect people of all skin types, but they're more common in adults with light skin. Unlike freckles, which are common in children and fade with no sun exposure, age spots don't fade.

Age Spots appear due to overactive pigment cells, and UV rays/light speeds up the production of the melanin. Over years after exposure to the sun age spots will appear as melanin becomes produced in high concentration and it becomes clumped together.
