Hi J,
I am not sure about getting rid of them but you can prevent them by staying away from the strong sun or if you have to be in it, always wear sunblock. Sun is the biggest culprit here since hands are always exposed the most.

J,

Diet plays a big part, I found that when I improved my diet, age spots were less pronounced and my skin took on a healthy glow..So get after those fresh fruits and veggies..

Porcelana will get rid of them. Lemon juice will fade them.

Hi J:

Real age spots (not freckles) are the result of lipofuscin, which is the accumulation of pigments caused by free radicals. Taking antioxidants and revising your diet should help retard this process.

If you want a pigment-fading product, or skin bleaching product, look for one containing natural ingredients.

Products containing hydroquinone, which is found in most skin bleaching creams, have been known to cause skin damage with long-term use. I believe some countries have banned hydroquinone since it's thought to be a carcinogen.
