Age Spots

June 2015

Q:  I love spending time in the sun, but am starting to develop age spots!  Other than wearing sunscreen or going to see my dermatologist, is there anything I can take to help?

A: Age spots are brown, tan, or black spots that usually appear on the face, hands, arms, and neck, i.e., areas that receive the most sun exposure.  Once they have been established, it is possible to lighten their appearance by taking Pycnogenol, a standardized maritime pine bark extract. Taking 50mg twice daily can not only help lighten age spots, but many also improve your skin's hydration and elasticity.
