Brown spots on the hands

Brown spots on the hands are very common, but hand hyperpigmentation is not inevitable, as you will see in this article.

What causes brown spots on the hands?

Brown spots on the body generally pose an aesthetic problem and affect self-esteem. These include brown spots on the hands, caused by a double phenomenon:
  • First, skin aging, which contributes to the formation of brown spots on the hands. This is why we speak sometimes of age spots on the hands. This sign of aging is particularly visible on a daily basis and can make the person feel uncomfortable when communicating with others;
  • Second, sun exposure, which remains the main cause of hyperpigmentation. In particular repeated sun exposure, which is sufficient to cause brown spots on the hands. In other words, you don’t have to have sunburn to see brown spots on the hands after a certain amount of time.

Where do brown spots on the hands appear?

Brown spots on the hands occur essentially on the backs of the hands.
A word of warning, if a brown spot has appeared recently under a nail, in the absence of any trauma, you must rapidly consult a doctor because it may be a melanoma.

How to remove brown spots on the hands?

Before you try to remove brown spots on the hands, remember that sun protection is a simple and effective way of preventing them from appearing. You should systematically apply sun cream to your hands.
Dermo-cosmetics formulated specifically for the hands can prevent and reduce brown spots on the hands thanks to their depigmenting, moisturising and sun filtering active ingredients.
At the same time, depigmenting treatments may be prescribed and/or carried out by a dermatologist.
