Seeing age spots in your skin is normal when you get older. Age spots are not harmful to your health and are more common to appear in sun-exposed areas of your body. They may appear to look like a melanoma and you should seek the evaluation of your doctor just to be sure that those spots are benign.

The good thing is that these bothersome age spots are more likely to be avoided by following the tips below:

  • Sunscreen – wear plenty of sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays 20 minutes before going outside and reapply every 2 hours.
  • Camouflage – to protect the areas of your body to sun exposure be sure to shade yourself under an umbrella or wear a wide brimmed hat and cover up yourself against the damaging rays of the sun.
  • Live a healthy lifestyle – eat a balanced diet consisting of fruits and vegetables coupled with a regular exercise to improve your skin’s blood circulation.
