Skin contains the pigment melanin which is activated by exposure to light. The palms of your hands and the soles of your feet have much thicker layers of skin due to their regular contact and friction with other objects (the ground, tools, etc). Melanocytes exist in the dermal layers of your palms and soles, but are buried beneath the more callous layers and are rarely directed at the sun. You could in theory try to tan your hands but the results would be pretty minimal compared to the rest of your body.

No, when you lie down in the hot sun with your hands facing up they don't get tanned but the rest of your arm does. Haven't you noticed that dark skinned people have pale palms, if your palms tanned then dark skinned people would also have dark palms wouldn't they? So, no i don't think you can unless you use fake tan!

There is no or little pigment in your palms or soles of your feet so they don't tan.

The palms and soles are the same general color (pink to tan) on ALL humans, because there is substantially less melanin (dark pigment) in the tissue. The pigment content of the skin is the primary difference between skin colors among various races, and is what causes light-skinned races to tan.

Yes. Mexican Fan Palms, California Fan Palms, and Date Palms are the most common.

California is full of palms these days. It was not always like that. Only one species of palm is native to the state: The California Fan Palm (scientific name: Washingtonia filifera). From early on in California's history, people have realized that the sunny mediterranean climate would suit many additional types of palm trees. Some people brought palms from the east coast (Sabal palms, Butia palms, Royal palms), some brought palms from Europe (Date palms, European Fan palms), some brought palms from Asia (Windmill palms, Chinese Fan palms), and some more brought palms from Mexico (Mexican Fan palms). All of these different palm species added to the "palmy" environment Californians love so much today.
