If you’ve ever had a trauma happen to your skin or have spent more than your fair share of time in the sun, your skin is likely to develop brown spots or hyperpigmentation.
These spots are considered by skin care specialists to be an early sign of aging and in most cases are first seen on the backs of hands. We often think that once you get brown spots that nothing can be done about it, but there are a few tricks of the trade that can be employed to fade the spots and keep them from coming back.
To start, brown spots appear when your epidermis which contains melanin becomes irritated and begins to increase production of the melanin. This overproduction then shows up as hyperpigmentation.
