In places that suffer from intense weather, such as the hot and dry Arizona climate, the risk of adverse effects on your skin is an elevated concern. Not only is there the risk of temporary problems, such as sunburns, longer lasting, or even permanent issues can result from overexposure to the sun. Age spots- dark circles on the epidermal layer, is a hereditary condition that can be greatly pronounced by intense UV exposure. A protective layer called Melanin covers our skin. Over exposure to UVA/ UVB rays from the sun causes the body to produce more Melanin. When too much Melanin is produced, it creates age spots, or brown spots. People over 40 are at increased risk for age spots caused by sun damage and those with fair skin.
Age Spots are not life threatening and can often be treated by a number of solutions. The most common recommendation s the use of sun protection, such as our Color science line.
