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! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
