When it comes to age spots (sun spots or liver spots), we often pay the price for sun damage that occurred when we were much younger. Research suggests that most of the sun damage to our skin occurs before we get to 18 years old. This sun damage may be present when we are young, but shows up as we age and as our skin thins.
Our skin loses volume as we age and in doing so, it becomes easier to see the sun damage and age spots. The fatty tissue that hid them when we were younger has thinned and the spots rise to the surface where they can be seen easily. Even though this is the case, it’s never too late to start practicing good sun avoidance. A proper sunscreen applied at least once per day goes a long way in preventing future sun spots and sun damage from forming.
