I am having to wear foundation every day now as I have so many age spots on my face, is there anything that will remove them, or am I destined to wear more and more make up as I age?

Thank you cookiemonster66

age spots can be removed by cryotherapy (freezing), minor procedures and some spots (actinic keratoses) by creams.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
