In brief: Yellow-orange hands

While jaundice can show up on the palms, a more common cause of yellow orange colour on the hands is high intake of beta carotene.
Beta carotene is found mainly in green leafy vegetables, and orange vegetables like carrots. I'm guessing here, but do you drink a lot of vegetable juice or take vitamin supplements?
