    The hyperpigmentation from age spots can be known by a host of other names: senile lentigo, lentigines, sun spots, or liver spots. These dark spots appear on the face, arms, and hands as we age.

    They're only nicknamed "age spots" because they typically don't start to make an appearance until later in life, but they actually have very little to do with the "normal" aging process.

    What they really are is evidence of your history of not taking very good care of your skin. They can be a major side effect of sun damage, appearing on the areas of our skin that get the most exposure to UVA/UVB rays.

    Are Your Habits Making Your Skin Unhappy?

    As the largest organ in your body, your skin performs highly important roles for you like body thermoregulation and prevention of fluid loss. It protects you from the harmful effects of the sun's radiation and keeps you safe from harmful toxins. It's your first line of defense.

    Freckles can definitely be cute. Imagine that cute little red-headed girl with the smattering of freckles dotting her facial features.

    As more and more women are putting their makeup down and hiding their concealer and foundation, they're being celebrated for their own natural uniqueness. Women are proud of their complexions and the differences they can showcase.
