Hi Zara, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer over the net as ideally one would like to examine the hands and then advice on the appropriate treatment regimen. From your description it seems that some form of pigmentory change is taking place and your first approach should be a good SPF – 50 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. I would also consider the NeoStrata Depigmenting Gel (at night), Renewal Cream, and the Brightening Cream SPF 15 (during the day). Furthermore I would add the NeoStrata Glycolic peeling regime to one’s protocol to further enhance the effects on the pigmentation and reducing the effect of the wrinkling.
