Many of us have at least some blemishes or splotches on our face. They can range from small to medium in size and, or light to dark in color. These collection of pigments known as melanin can get worse as we age and many times these spots are unwanted and can causes many self-conscious issues for people. Here’s an explanation of those face splotches.

What Are Face Splotches? 

These face splotches can be anything, really. Whether they are freckles, age spots, sun spots, or liver spots, it doesn’t matter—it doesn’t change how you feel about them. But in most cases, you’ll have nothing to worry about.

Melanin spots can occur due to prolonged exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Bein gou in the sun without the proper protection can lead to sun spots, wrinkles and other damaging effects to your skin. This will typically affect those with a lighter skin tone more frequently, but anyone can get them. Even if you take the fight precautions now with wearing sunscreen, the damage could have already been done years ago.  

Most spotting on your face is not harmful, just cosmetic issues, but others could be a sign of more damaging conditions such as skin cancer.

Preventative measure to protect your face

Even though a lot of damage has already existed on your skin, it is never too late to start protecting yourself from harmful UV rays. Wearing sunscreen when you go out and continually reapplying it throughout the day can greatly reduce your chances of harmful damage.

Invest in a UVA/UVB sunblock that contains a minimum of SPF 30 and use it everyday. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can shine through the clouds and can even become amplified.
