What Causes Sun Spots to Form?
There are a lot of factors that can affect the health and appearance of our skin. One of the largest factors is the sun. The sun emits UV radiation, which can be harmful to unprotected skin. Prolonged sun exposure can also cause damage to the skin.
One of the more common aesthetic issues that can occur as a result of sun exposure is the formation of sun spots. UV radiation stimulates the production of melanin. Melanin is what gives the skin a darker color. It is found naturally in people with darker skin or it can form when tanning. In the case of sun spots, the melanin forms in patches that give the skin an uneven and unhealthy appearance.
