Sun spots, also known as liver spots or age spots, are the result of long-term exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays. These flat, brownish patches appear on areas of the body most often exposed to the sun – especially the face, hands, and arms.
These discolorations are not cancerous and don't cause negative effects on your skin health. If you neglect sunscreen or have neglected sunscreen in the past, chances are you have a few of these sun spots on your skin.
damn that's true!
I neglected using sunscreen before, but my mom forced me to apply sunscreen everytime I go under the sun. I used to have an impression that if I apply sunscreen on my skin I won't get dark, but of course I was wrong. Sunscreen really helps protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. You just need to choose the right one for you. Don't forget to choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 and above.
This is the left side of my face. Those are the sun spots I'm talking about. Now, I have them on the right side of my face as well. I know they are not THAT bad because they are not all over my face, but I really want them to lighten up. Yes, I use foundation to cover them up, but sometimes I do not want to apply foundation and just leave with natural looking face. My dermatologist told me that I can't eliminate them anymore, but I can still prevent them to multiply.
Now, this is where I need your help and recommendations.
Do you guys know any face product that will help lighten up sun spots? I would really appreciate if you guys can help me out with this :)
thanks for reading
love you guys :)
