Information About Sunspots

Skin spots can occur for many reasons. Sun rays, hormonal changes, genetic predisposition and side effects of some drugs are some of them. Melanin is a naturally occurring substance in our body that creates skin color. Melanin pigment increases as the skin is exposed to excessive sunlight. It can be said that spots occur in areas where melanin pigment increases and aggregates.

One of the most troublesome aspects of summer and the sun for us is definitely sunspots. Everyone wants a smooth, color-free, radiant and beautiful skin, but overexposure to the sun causes sunspots. These spots can stay on the skin for a long time. There are things to do to protect from sunspots and prevent their formation.

Sunspots that occur in places where the sun can easily reach, such as the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, nose, chin, neck and arms, are not liked by anyone in terms of appearance. No one wants blemishes on their lips, chin or anywhere else on their skin.

Knowing the causes of sunspots is the first step in preventing these spots. One of the main causes of sunspots is that UV rays reach the skin directly. UV rays cause a long-term change in the pigment structure of the skin, and this change is called sunspot. No matter how much the sun is the source of life, there are cases where it can damage our skin. Therefore, you should not go out to the sun without protection, especially in summer.
