You’re getting lots of rest, your diligent about your skincare routine, and you take anti-aging seriously, so one would think you’ve got all your bases covered… except for a true skin care expert. They know the one place that gives your age away no matter how good you take care of your face is your hands.
Your hands happen to be the most exposed part of the skin on your body, even more than your face! Because of it’s constant exposure to elements, your hands can age quickly leaving wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin and no matter how great your face looks, this can give away your true age.
Here are a few of our favorite tips to make sure you’re taking good care of your hands and keeping them looking their best.
Your skin looks the best when it’s got a healthy amount of hydration and that is true for your hands too! Like your face, wrinkles can appear deeper and more severe when they are dehydrated. Using a moisturizer at least twice a day on your hands can help keep wrinkles at bay and keep your hands as soft as possible.
If you’re looking for added muscle power in fighting hand wrinkles, you can always use your anti-wrinkle moisturizer like the Repair & Release Cream. Because of the powerful anti-wrinkle peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argileine, this will provide extra help to repair your wrinkles than an average hand cream will while still providing all the hydration your hands could need.
We cannot emphasize this enough… SPF is your BFF! If your skin isn’t protected from the sun, you’re going to get burned!
Using an SPF on your hands is crucial to avoiding sun damage and causing premature aging on your hands. This helps keep your hands protected from further damage and protects your skin so it’s able to heal itself from free radicals.
To make sure your hands are safe from harmful rays, apply an SPF to the tops of your hands at least 3 times a day, or anytime after washing your hands. If you’re spending the day at the beach or out in the sun, we suggest re-applying every hour for extra protection.
A little pampering and self-care can make anyone feel their best! When it comes to aging hands, something as simple as a manicure can have your hands looking their best and leave you feeling great about yourself!
By treating yourself to a manicure, you can take a few hours to yourself and unwind. Not only will that do wonders for your mental health, but the result of a professional manicure will also leave your hands looking amazing and give you a confidence boost. Pick your favorite shade of polish and enjoy being pampered!
