I'm in my 30s and already seeing age spots on my hands. Are they permanent?

Bobbi: Let’s call them what they really are—sun spots. They’re caused by UV exposure (why sun worshippers may start seeing spots in their 20s). A foundation stick in your skin tone can hide spots, but to get rid of them, try an OTC lightener with hydroquinone or a prescription vitamin A–based cream like Renova. If that doesn’t work, ask your derm about laser resurfacing.
