But if you spend a lot of time in the sun, then you may also get these brown spots on your skin.
Frequent usage of the tanning bed can also contribute to the development of age spots on your skin.
Frequent exposure to UV rays can increase the production of melanin in your skin.
Age spots appear on those body parts that had prolonged sun exposure and high melanin concentrations.
