It is obvious that the best way to combat sun spots on the skin is through prevention. Unfortunately though, this is not always possible, and you are probably wondering what you can do if you have a sun spot on your skin. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do to help this problem.

There are a couple of different types of sun spots. One type is caused by too much time in the sun, while the other is caused by a special type of fungus. The sun spots that are caused by the fungus can be treated using various over the counter products, creams, and even some perscription drugs. The type of sun spots caused by prolonged exposure to the sun can be treated using various creams and lotions as well, although if that doesn't work, you may need to try something a bit more drastic. There are skin bleaching agents which can be used to lighten the appearance of sun spots on the skin. These are harsh chemical treatments which can be applied to the affected area in order to lighten the spot and make them less noticeable. For this treatment, it is important to go to a professional. Bleaching the skin requires specialized chemicals and should be handled with caution.

One important thing to remember when treating sun spots is that it is not too late to prevent yourself from getting more. You should be very careful not to stay in the sun too long and to wear protective clothing and sunscreen at all times.
