Hands not only are susceptible to the first signs of aging, but very often will age even faster than the face. This is due to the fact that the skin is much thinner on the back of the hand than that on your face. Since there’s less muscle volume and very little fat on the backs of the hands, small amounts of collagen or elastin fibers begins to break down quicker than other parts in the body. This is a normal part of the aging. However, sun and toxin exposure can accelerate the aging process having a noticeable impact on your hands. Aging also brings out brown spots, known as liver spots, which give away your age.
