Q. Help! I am starting to notice age spots on my face, hands and body! How can I fight them? I worry about using products with bleaches.
Dr. Linda Miles L. Ac., D.O.M. responds:
In order to fight age spots, it is important to understand where they come from. Sun exposure is the major culprit behind these spots, as they are an accumulation of melanin (the pigment that is made when we expose ourselves to the sun). While we were enjoying sunning times outside, we were not wearing our antioxidants to keep the sun’s rays from doing damage, and we now have these “unsightly” age spots.
So now how do we get rid of them?
