Skin Care for Age Spots & Barnacles

There are different types of “age spots", the most common of which are the solar lentigo (liver spot) and the seborrheic keratosis (barnacle). Both of these common types of age spots can be treated by creams and lotions that reduce their brown color and thickened dead skin cells.

These lesions are a result of the brown melanin pigment being over-produced and then held on the skin by tenacious, thick dead cells. I recommend using exfoliation with shower cloths, sponges, or exfoliating body scrubs to remove the dead cells when you bathe. Then apply a moisturizer with an ingredient that loosens the 'glue' holding the dead cells together to better remove the pigment and scale of these age spots. The best ingredient for that in a moisturizing product is professional-strength glycolic acid. Know that hydrating skin is important to keep scale and pigment from building up to darken age spots. 

Lighten age spots using glycolic acid, and turn down the excessive pigment production with sunscreen and sun protection. When practical, you can also use ingredients that reduce excess pigment production such as vitamin C, retinoids (such as retinol), and hydroquinone, or natural fading ingredients like kojic acid. Build your complete skin care routine from the 4 essential steps for the best results:

  1. Cleanse with exfoliation twice a week. Get extra results with a glycolic acid cleanser. Avoid harsh cleansers that overly dry skin during general skin cleansing.
  2. Correct with glycolic acid moisturizers and ingredients that lower pigment production. 
  3. Hydrate with a rich moisturizer after every bath or shower. Use glycolic acid at least twice a week.
  4. Protect with broad spectrum sunscreen, using it on exposed skin 356 days a year.
