Age Spots Ruin Lives

Age spots are dark blemishes found on the skin surface on areas more easily exposed to sunlight. These areas include the face, arms, bald head and shoulders in some cases. They are more common with the elderly people hence the name age spots. Ultraviolet rays from the sun are the main cause of these spots. The skin contains melanin. This is a dark pigment that gives the skin its color and protects it from the harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. When the skin is exposed to the sun, more melanin is produced for protection.

As one grows older, the bits of melanin clamp together and form dark blemishes. These blemishes are what we call age spots. When a person gets age spots, their appearance is very much affected. This is because the age spots appear on areas of the skin that cannot be hidden. The person might take a very long time to accept the fact that they have age spots. The panic that comes with the appearing of the spots can make them hurry to have them removed. This hurry might lead them to dangerous hands that leave the skin in a worse condition than it was.

A person with age spots should not expose their skin to a lot of sunshine. Therefore, if the person’s job involved exposure to a lot of sunshine, very many adjustments will have to be put in place in order to accommodate them. In extreme cases, the person may end up losing the job since the age spots may leave them not able to perform the duties that they should perform.

For models, age spots can mean a complete turnaround especially if they are located on the face. Models depend on their looks in their work hence age spots can ruin their lives completely. This is because age spots cause very serious negative effects on the looks. If treatment fails, age spots can mean an end to one’s modeling career.

Holidays of people who love sun bathing on beaches and tanning beds are ruined by age spots since they can no longer do what they like. Exposure to the sun becomes limited because of the age spots. A person’s self-esteem also goes down and it becomes hard for them to interact well and confidently with other people. This can be said to be as a result of the not so attractive age spots present on the person’s face.
