Try using a uniform background rather than a cluttered one if you can. It will make it a lot simpler.
You could try color segmentation to extract just skin and I attach a demo for that.

I don't know. You could try. You could also try the foreground detector in the Computer Vision Toolbox. Otherwise give my skin color detector a try.

You can use imfreehand() or Freehand() to draw the boundary of the palm interactively and then mask out everything in the background.
