With the exception of peri/post-menapausal women whom need more moisture, there isn't enough of a biochemical difference between either gender's skin that warrants separate skin care lines. Men's skincare is a pure product of marketing.
Sadly OTC topicals do very little for age spots. I highly suggest starting with a aha/bha product at a level of at east 10%. Once you builkd up a tolerance, start a RX retinoid product like Retin A or even better Atralin. If those still don't get rid of the hyper-pigmentation, then you will need to include a product like Obaji Clear or Blender, both containing RX level Hydroquinone at 4%. I also suggest you make an appoinment with a derm to determine how deep this hyper-pigmentation runs in your dermal layers. Topicals not matter at what strength can only address pigmentation issues on the upper levels of the skin.
