Homeopathy Medicine for Liver Spots
Age spots, also known as sunspots, liver spots, and solar lentigines, are tiny, flat dark spots that can vary in size and typically develop on skin that has been exposed to sunlight, such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms.
Age spots are very common in people over 50, but they can also appear on younger people who spend time in the sun.
True age spots don’t require treatment, but they are a sign of extensive sun exposure and the skin’s defense mechanism against further sun damage. For aesthetic reasons, they can be lightened or removed.

Contrary to freckles, which are common in children and go away with no sun exposure, age spots don’t go away and can affect people of all skin tones, but they tend to affect adults with light skin more frequently.
- Are there elongated, flattened areas with more color?
- are typically light to dark brown.
- afflict skin that has spent the most time in the sun, such as the upper back, shoulders, backs of the hands, and tops of the feet.

Age spots develop on skin that has been exposed to the sun for a long time when melanin becomes clumped or is produced in high concentrations, which is accelerated by ultraviolet (UV) light and is the cause of age spots.
- Have light skin
- have a history of getting sunburned or exposed to the sun frequently or intensely
Follow these recommendations for limiting sun exposure to help prevent age spots and new spots following treatment:
Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.Try to plan outdoor activities for other times of the day since the sun’s rays are at their strongest during this time.
Use sunscreen.Apply sunscreen liberally 15 to 30 minutes before venturing outdoors, reapply every two hours, or more frequently if swimming or perspiring, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Cover up.Wear tightly woven, arm- and leg-covering clothing, along with a broad-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the sun. This offers more coverage than a baseball cap or golf visor.
Consider donning sun-protective clothing; for the best coverage, look for clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 40 to 50.
