Freckles and Sunspots: The bane of the golfer

Aug 19th 2010 at 12:28 AM

Many golfers sport freckles and sunspots like a badge of honor. Fair skins are more prone to developing freckles which are small, flat brown marks that are seen mostly on the face and other areas exposed to the sun. The discoloration is caused by an accumulation of pigment in the skin cells. Sunspots are another skin condition resulting from excessive exposure to the sun. They manifest themselves as spots that appear lighter or darker than the rest of the skin. A golfer is advised to visit a dermatologist once a year. He or she should also take note of freckles, moles and blemishes on the body and keep a monthly track of any changes that take place. What one should be looking for are changes in size, color and texture and for spots that itch and bleed.

Med3 Dermaceuticals of Los Altos, CA produces a range of skin care products that offer a golfer not just protection but peace of mind as well. The company has done extensive research into sun and age related skin conditions common to golfers and others constantly exposed to the sun.
