Keep hands young

When I get in my car I put sunscreen on my hands and arms. Driving in the hot summer sun, even with the windows up, increases sun damage on your hands, too.

The BEST tip I ever got from a dermotologist, was to put sunscreen on my hands, to prevent age spots. Eversince I have been doing that my hands have not gotten those age spots.

AND treat your neck and chest as you do your face.

Hi rxandmore,

Please post your question about blue veins on the hands as a discussion starter. Mouse over the orange "Post Now" button and click on the discussion link if you want the doctors to more easily "see" your post as this thread is a tip rather than a discussion thread. Thanks.
