Our hands one of the first places to age and liver spots, dark spot and age spots (or whatever you want to call them) creep up fast. With spring in full swing, and (hopefully) a mass of sunny days on the horizon, it’s time to invest in a seriously good hand cream laden with SPF. Forget the pungent white pastes of the 90s (the ones that used to take half a day to sink in), today’s formulas are high-tech, fast absorbing buttery affairs that protect, perfect and don’t cost a fortune.
