Excessive sun exposure in your youth may have damaged the cells that produce melanin (skin pigmentation), which leads to dark spots on your face, chest, and hands. Sun spots are also referred to as age spots, liver spots or dark spots, and are flat brown, gray or black spots. While sun spots may not show up until the age of 40, they can also appear on younger people.

True sun spots are harmless and don’t require treatment, but they can look like cancerous growths so it is recommended that you have them medically diagnosed so that you can rule out a more serious condition.The best remedy for sun spots is prevention--always us a sunscreen.  Some treaments include:
