Prevent Age Spots on Your Hands

 Did you know that those "age spots" are just sun damage? And did you remember that UVA rays come through car and home window glass? Put the two together and it’s a recipe for spots.

Don’t forget to sunscreen your hands if you’re outdoors. And, if you spend a lot of time in a car, consider getting some driving gloves. If you’re a golfer, try to golf both hands and put sunscreen on any exposed skin on the back of your hand by the strap of the glove. Reapply sunscreen after washing your hands if you can.

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!
