In fact Epsom salts are not a salt at all but a 100% natural pure mineral, comprising magnesium and sulfate. Why do we need magnesium and sulfates?

The words age spots are really not the kind of description you want to hear about a condition that usually affects visible areas of your skin (particularly the hands) as you grow older. Their other common name of liver spots is also a bit off putting. Sun spots would definitely sound more attractive, and not without justification either as too much exposure to the sun is the main reason for their appearance anyway.
