One typical outward sign of aging is the appearance of brown age spots on the skin, especially the hands, which should not be confused with freckles. The medical name for liver or age spots is “lentigines” from the Latin for “lentil.” They appear as flat, brownish marks on the skin with rounded edges and are larger in size than a freckle. Age spots, or liver spots as they are sometimes known, are the result of an excess production of melanin, the natural pigmentation of the skin. Doctors are as yet not completely sure why age spots develop, but the aging of the skin, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet, or UV light exposure, for instance tanning beds, are all possible reasons. They do not feel different to the surrounding skin or feel uncomfortable. Some opinions state that age spots are caused by free-radicals deteriorating the skin’s lipids, the lipofuscin pigments accumulate within many different parts of the body, one of the “wear and tear” pigments and they can be controlled by using the right oils both in your dietary intake and on the skin.
