This is a very interesting question. The appearance of sun spots automatically indicate the fact that skin damage appeared and the body’s natural defense against the harmful effect of sun rays is not as strong as it should be. Exposure to UV light is dangerous as melanocytes in your skin’s outer layer will produce an increased quantity of melanin. That offers a tan that protects deeper layers. As the skin produces too much of this melanin in just one area, spots and speckles appear.

The best possible way to prevent sun spot appearance is to effectively limit sun exposure. The sun spots naturally appear on your arms, shoulders, neck and face so you have to keep these regions covered in order to properly avoid discoloration. Obviously, you can also use ways to protect the skin in the event that you do want to get a good looking tan.

Make sure that you will apply sunscreen daily. Many of the great foundations and moisturizers include sunscreen but not all of them have a high SPF rating. The problem is that many people will rely on makeup for protection. This is never enough. We recommend that you apply a really good sunscreen to the areas mentioned above before you go out, around 15 minutes before you do. The sunscreen should protect against both UVB and UVA rays. The SPF should be at least 30.

One thing that many do not know is that you can work on preventing sun spots and sun damage skin problems in general during the night. Use a cream that has good restorative effects, including Vitamin A and retinol. Moisturizers are really useful during the night so that you can be sure that the skin is properly hydrated at all times.

In the event that you are already dealing with problems, consider home remedies for sun spots first because of the fact that they are quite effective. If that fails, go to the dermatologist and see if there are some good products that can be recommended. You will be surprised to notice how many options are currently available and see how good they actually are.
