Question: How to Get Rid of Liver Spots (Age Spots) on Hands
Answer: As we age, our hands may develop liver spots (or "age spots"), which are blemishes typically caused by overexposure to damaging UV rays from the sun.

Liver spots can be removed by lasers in a doctor's office. To prevent liver spots, use hand creams with SPF protection. Your hands will give away your age as you get older, even if your face is as lineless as that of a 20-year-old's.

Great hand lotions with SPF protection include Ole Henriksen Hands Forward SPF 15. It contains kojic acid, which prevents brown spots. Compare Prices

Another great option is Kiehl's Creme de Corps, which is SPF 30.Compare Prices

Here's a list of hand creams with SPF from $5 to upwards of $30.
