You work hard to keep the skin on your face young and smooth, so don't let your hands give away your age…

  • Apply sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on hands every day. Use products with Z-Cote, a microfine zinc oxide. Reapply after washing, swimming or perspiring.
  • Use a bleaching product to fade brown spots (age, sun or liver spots). Your dermatologist can give you a prescription for one, or you can try one of the milder over-the-counter products, such as Porcelana.
  • Wear gloves whenever possible.
  • Have bulging blue veins removed by a dermatologist with a laser, or have a dermatologist inject a sclerosing agent, which causes veins to collapse and fade.

Cost: $3,000 or more.

  • Remove fine lines and improve the paper like quality of aging skin with laser treatments that generate collagen—also available from a dermatologist.

Cost: $2,000 to $4,000.
