Avoid Spots on the Back of Your Hands

Don’t forget your hands when it comes to aging skin. Most people get as much sun on the backs of their hands as they do on their faces.

You can use the same products you use on your face on the backs of your hands. The one exception may be Renova, because it may be irritating with the constant small traumas to our hands.

Use your sunscreen daily on the backs of your hands and remember, UVA comes through car window glass. Consider driving gloves if you’re in your car a lot.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
