1. “I’m starting to notice age spots on my hand. Am I stuck with them forever?”
Answer: No. Age spots – or sun spots – are pockets of melanin caused by sun damage. There are many ways to treat sun spots, but one great at-home remedy is to dab some plain Greek yogurt directly on to the spots and let it dry for about 15-20 minutes. The lactic acid in the yogurt helps lighten the spots. Repeat this every three days until the spots have noticeably faded.
