6 Skin Flaws that Give Away Your Age

Are you starting to see age spots?

Are you starting to see age spots?

You can help to prevent age spots by regularly using sunscreens before the age of 40, avoiding prolonged sun exposure, and wearing protective clothing and hats. Putting these recommendations into practice will also help to reduce your chances of developing skin cancer, wrinkles and other sun-related skin changes.

The routine use of cosmetic products containing an exfoliating ingredient can help to lighten freckles and age spots by removing the superficial layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher-looking skin. A convenient way to incorporate an exfoliant into your daily skin care routine is to find one that's included in a moisturizer.

You may also want to look for a formulation that includes niacinamide, which plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. Niacinamide is a B-complex vitamin that can improve the skin's barrier function and help to lighten areas of the skin that have darker pigmentation.
