ANTI-AGING Tips for hand skin care

The skin of the hands is more vulnerable because it is much thinner. Hands also tend to be dryer than our faces because they have fewer sebaceous glands, which produce sebum, an oily substance that helps protect the skin by keeping it lubricated and waterproof. Here are some TIPS for ANTI-AGING hand skin care.

TIP No 1: Wash Your Hands with the Right Products!
Sensitive and normal skin can benefit from a gentle cleanser without fragrance or harsh ingredients. Antibacterial soaps can be drying to hands so avoid them if your hands are likely to crack or look parched.

TIP No 2: Wear RUBBER Gloves for Chores!
Protect your skin by not allowing it to be exposed to chemicals and water temperatures that can irritate and dry out your hands. This is especially important if you have cuts or lesions on your hands or if your skin is prone to irritation.

TIP No 3: Exfoliate 1-2 Time a Week!
Exfoliation will help keep your hands looking young and feeling soft. Use a gentle scrub once a week to exfoliate your hands of dead skin cells.

TIP No 4: Use a Serum!
At night, when you are applying your anti-aging skin-care products to your face, try massaging some of those anti-aging serums into the tops of your hands, too. This can help ensure that the skin on your hands are receiving a boost of nourishing skin benefits too.

TIP No 5: Use a Dark Spot Corrector!
If you have dark spots on your hands you can use a dark spot corrector to help reduce their appearance. Select one with antioxidants such as Vitamin C or retinol. Over time and with consistent usage, this product will brighten your skin and make it look more youthful.

TIP No 6: Moisturize!
Hand cream is a great way to restore moisture, so try to find the best moisturizer for you. If you don't want your palms and fingertips to feel greasy, apply the moisturizer on the back of one hand, then rub the backs of the hands together. This avoids getting any cream on your palms.

TIP No 7: Deep Condition
When moisturizer isn’t enough, look for a Hand Mask. Hand masks work just like face masks. They sit on your skin, infusing and trapping in moisture and nutrients. You apply the thick mask to the backs of your hands and leave it for a while (usually around 10-20 minutes) as it soaks in and works its moisturizing magic.

TIP No 8: SPF!
Sun exposure is the number one cause of skin aging so you need to protect your hands by using Sunscreen with at least SPF 15 to prevent dark spots and sun damage.

TIP No 9: Visit a Professional!
If your hands are already starting to show a few signs of aging, visit a Beautician. It's always easier to practice prevention as a first method of defense.
