Freckles are cute when you’re four, but when you’re 40, dark spots on your face are far from desirable.

Age spots are a sign that toxic waste is accumulating inside your body and liver.

Wrinkles are typically the sign of aging that bothers women most, but dark and age spots come in at a close second.

Age Spots , Dark Spots and Brown Spots, technically known as hyperpigmentation, are brown, gray, or black blemishes caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Age spots, Dark Spots and Brown Spots go by many different names, including liver spots, sun spots, and solar lentigines, and they are common in adults over the age of 50. With so many different names to describe these undesirable spots, they all fall into the same category - hyperpigmentation.

According to the College of Dermatology, Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race.

What Causes Dark Spots?

Dark spots are a sign that toxic waste is accumulating inside your body and liver. The buildup of waste products is called lipofuscin accumulation, and it is a byproduct of free radical damage in your skin cells. Aging, stress, sun exposure, pollution, and pregnancy can all lead to free radical damage. 

Although dark spots frequently develop as a result of sun exposure, you can also get them from tanning beds and even overhead lighting. Younger people can also develop age spots, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun. There are various factors that make you more susceptible to age spots, including the following:

  • Having a history of frequent or intense sun exposure
  • Having a history of frequent tanning bed usage
  • Having fair skin
  • Being over the age of 40
  • Genetic predisposition to age spots

Dark spots vary in size, ranging from the size of a freckle to more than a ½ inch in diameter. They typically appear on the face and the back of the hands. They may also appear on your shoulders, upper back, or forearms because those areas receive the most sun exposure. Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin. 

Dark spots might be unattractive but they are usually harmless. Nevertheless, it is always a good idea to have any blemishes evaluated by a dermatologist just to be sure. Your doctor can diagnose age spots by looking at your skin. If your doctor is concerned that an age spot might be cancerous, he or she will likely perform a biopsy. 

How to Get Rid of all these undesirable Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation.

The easiest way to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance is to prevent brown spots in the first place by avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen on a regular basis. It’s best to stay out of the sun between 10am and 3pm because that’s when the sun’s rays are the strongest. 15 to 30 minutes before going outside, apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA and UVB light and reapply it every two hours. Reapply sunscreen more frequently if you’re sweating or swimming.

If you already have brown spots, you may consider treating them to improve your appearance and enhance your self-esteem. Age and Brown spots aren’t dangerous and don’t cause any health issues, but many people prefer to remove them because of their unsightly appearance. Lasers can effectively get rid of dark spots, but the treatments are costly, running at anywhere from approximately $400 to $1500 a pop, and more than one treatment is needed to fully eliminate the brown spots. Bleaching creams that contain hydroquinone are also used to lighten dark spots but they can irritate the skin. These spot treatments may also create a halo effect that lightens the area around the age spot and make your skin more sensitive to UV damage.

Topical treatments are only a temporary solution – they do not address the root of the problem. The most effective way to treat brown and age spots is to limit the cellular damage that free radicals cause and control the excess production of melanin by taking a whitening supplement.

We all live for the summer months! Nothing is better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage. This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us, resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.

Aging is kind of a bummer, am I right? 

Even though our mothers gave us the heads-up that things are going to change, we then wake up one morning (approx. age 35 for me) and realize that 1) Things HAVE changed, along with 2) Mom was right…AGAIN . And unfortunately, our skin is usually where we see the effects of aging in our bodies first. From dryness, to volume loss and fine lines, to perhaps even the oh-so-unfair adult onset acne, time has a way of wreaking havoc on our once pristine skin. 

But the great news is, we can reduce these effects by nourishing our skin from the inside, out. And as a registered dietitian, I’m here to provide a few proven nutrition tips and real-life tricks, to nourish your skin to help keep it glowing and healthy for years to come.

Protecting your skin from the sun is important, no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially vital in the summertime. While you might want to bare your skin in the summer to achieve a beautiful, sun-kissed complexion, UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause premature aging if you aren’t careful.

UVA rays, which account for 90 to 95 percent of the UV radiation that reaches the earth, penetrate deep layers of the skin and cause tanning. UVB radiation accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of solar radiation, but it damages the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin, causing sunburn.

  UVA rays cause the collagen in your skin to break down at a higher rate than normal aging . They do this by penetrating the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, and lead to the abnormal buildup of elastin. This elastin accumulates and results in the production of enzymes that break down collagen.

The more sun exposure you get, the worse the damage becomes. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that increase the number of enzymes that break down collagen. An excessive amount of free radicals in your body can also weaken your vascular system, cause poor circulation, and lead to deteriorated eye health.
