sunspots... anybody else have them?

Postby KaliBaby » Tue Jul 19, 2011 1:07 am

I didn't know where to post this topic but here it goes.

It sucks to be a creature of habit, I can't stay out of the sun! I have an appointment with a dermatologist in a few weeks to check out a new mole on my back that looks like melanoma... again :( As long as it gets cut out early, I'd much prefer a scar than early death.

What I'm more concerned with right now (oiy) is that I have sunspots on my face!!! I thought only old people got sunspots!

I've been Googling methods to get rid of them (lazer surgery, acid peels, microdermabrasion, etc).

Has/does anyone else had/have experience with sunspots? How did you deal with them? Are there any actual vegan-friendly ways to get rid of sunspots? Please help!

You mean frickles (like Pipi Langstrump)?
They are cute.

To get rid of them, wait for winter ;)

Sorry, cant help.

Your pic looks quite normal to me. I don't think you are going to get early death from freckles or darkened skin on your cheeks.

I don't think you can die from sunspots either... they are just un-attractive! :roll:

^ False.

Freckles are ALWAYS cute. 100% of the time.

Yep, this has even been supported by scientific research. See here for the full info.

Come on, laughing's not cool. Think of poor Kali and her struggle against cuteness.
