When you think about aging skin, where does your mind go first? If you are like most, chances are your first thought is the skin on your face. So much of our anti-aging energy tends to be focused on this area. We apply serums, creams, and, of course, sunscreen. We look for the tangible clues that our skin is aging and are active about finding ways to combat fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, redness, rough patches of skin, and areas that have lost volume. It is easy to focus on the facial region because, naturally, it is what we see when we look into the mirror.
We often focus much of our attention on preventative measures to help ensure that the skin on this area of the body is taken care of and many anti-aging and aesthetic services like Botox, fillers and injectables, facial peels, laser services, dermaplaning, and more tend to focus on this area specifically.
However, there is another part of your body that shows age quickly, your hands. Consider how often you use your hands throughout the day, virtually all the time. They are constantly exposed to the elements and are not free from the effects of volume loss either. You may not give much thought to the skin on your hands at the moment but know that they are quick to show the passage of time. You can combat the signs of aging on your hands by making these 3 things a part of your daily routine.
1. Apply Sunscreen
Every time you apply sunscreen to the rest of your body, do not forget the tops of your hands. This will do wonders with regards to the prevention of age spots and wrinkles.
A great moisturizer isn’t just for your face and décolletage. You Beauty recommends a product that contains Omega-3s. The skin on your hands craves moisture so find a product that works for you and stick with it.
Dry scaly skin is something that can affect anyone of any age. However, with the right exfoliator, you can rid yourself of the patchy skin that is giving away your age. Prevention recommends the use of an exfoliating scrub before bed each night followed by a luscious hand cream.
