It is normal for our hands to show signs of aging as we age. Sometimes our hands age faster than our face because they are exposed to more environment, and frequent hand washing and product use can dry them out. If you want to have younger looking skin, you have to take care of your hands from an early age. So what can you do to revitalize your skin and protect your hands from aging naturally?
1. Protect your skin from the sun
Continued exposure to the sun and not wearing sunscreen can cause the skin to age faster. Your hands also need sun protection because they are always exposed. When you use your daily moisturizer with SPF on your face, use it on your hands too.
2. Wear gloves when doing laundry
To protect your skin from water damage and drying, wear gloves when cleaning and washing dishes. Hot water and abrasive products take a toll on your hands, removing the natural oils that help keep your skin moisturized.
3. Hydrate regularly
Take every opportunity to moisturize your hands. Apply moisturizer immediately after washing your hands. But make sure it's a natural product that won't cause more damage.
4. Use natural beauty products
If you want youthful skin, it's time to revamp your beauty products. Look for products that are natural and paraben-free, with ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E, and macadamia oil etc.
5. What treatments are available to help hands look younger?
It is normal for our hands to lose elasticity and become more wrinkled as we age. Dermal fillers can easily change the appearance of your hands without surgery if you want to improve with some treatment. A natural dermal filler is injected into the treatment area. Fillers lift the depressions between tendons and veins to reduce the bony and wrinkled appearance. It also stimulates your natural hyaluronic acid production, which acts as an internal moisturizer, hydrating your skin and leaving your hands feeling softer. The procedure also restores lost volume in your hands to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
6. What happens during hand rejuvenation?
After deciding on a hand dermal filler treatment, first, your skin needs to be cleaned and disinfected and a topical anesthetic cream applied to ensure your comfort. The filler is then injected into the under-volume area and massaged into place.
