Those spots are called age spots, or liver spots. They can appear on your face, on your legs, arms, shoulders, Age spots are a form of hyperpigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation

This is common affliction in which an overproduction of melanin (a natural pigment inside the skin) causes dark spots and an uneven complexion. The spots aren’t dangerous, although it is important to keep an eye on them. Consult your GP when:

  • Some spots are getting darker than others
  • A dark circle appears around one (or more) of the spots
  • They keep growing or start to get a reddish color
