As our bodies get older, the melanin levels in our skin lose their balance which in turn causes dark spots on your hands, shoulders and pretty much everywhere else. These spots can also be caused by stains from different foods, lack of moisture in the skin and even too much sun exposure. Often called liver spots, these marks actually have nothing to do with your liver. They are harmless and simply occur due to too much sun exposure or age. They happen most noticeably on the elderly and those with fair skin but potentially anyone could be at risk. Even though they do nothing to your overall health, they are unsightly and embarrassing. At times, they may even make us want to revert attention from our hands at all costs. Today we have found a way to get rid of these blotches and embrace our own skin.
