Have you noticed small brown spots on the skin around your arms, face or chest? Unfortunately, brown spots are an aggravating condition that many of us live with. We can typically thank the sun for causing these unsightly discolorations of the skin. Sun damaged skin can bleed excess pigment into other cells, adjoining them to have too much extra brown pigment, thus resulting in these brown spots. However, there is a silver lining to all of this. Aside from being frustrating to look at, these common skin discolorations tend to be harmless, non-cancerous and can be removed if you so choose.
