Understanding Dark Spots

Common symptoms of dark spots include:

  • Spots are light to dark brown or black in color
  • Flat spots
  • Affects areas on the skin that are most exposed to the sun: face, back of hands, shoulders, arms, and back
  • May group together to form larger surfaces of dark skin
  • Oval in shape

Dark spots can appear on any part of the body, but they are most often found in areas that could be exposed to the sun, such as the forearms, face, and back of hands. Dark spots are not one specific shade of brown. Instead, they can range from light brown to almost black, depending on your natural skin tone and the amount of pigment that has been produced.

When the cells that produce pigment in the skin start to release more melanin than is needed, dark spots begin to form on the skin. Exposure to the sun without sunscreen makes skin produce more melanin in order to protect against damaging ultraviolet rays; this often results in tan or sometimes sunburnt skin. This is why dark spots may be more prevalent in the summer, when UV rays are strongest and people tend to spend a lot more time outdoors.

Age, hormones, damage from free radicals, genetics, medication, and other factors can also contribute to the formation of dark spots. Women experiencing hormonal changes are especially susceptible to dark spots. While they are generally harmless, dark spots can affect self-esteem and confidence.

Popular Remedies for Dark Spots

Sunscreen is one of the best weapons to help protect your skin from sun damage. Exfoliators, products that reduce the production of melanin, and products with hydrating and anti-inflammatory ingredients are extremely effective in removing the dark spots.
