Younger Looking Hands

A primed up face isn’t enough to make people go wondering about your age, because people do like to sneak a peek at your hands to determine your hands. So the next time you want to look younger, do remember to pay attention to your hands as well. A few precautions are all that’s needed to keep you hands looking younger forever, here’s how.

Keep them moisturized

Washing your hands too often causes the skin on your hands to dry out and become cracked. So look for a hand wash which contains a moisturizer, as this type of a hand wash causes less dryness. Next, keep a body lotion or moisturizer next to the hand wash dispenser, and rub in a drop of it after every hand wash, but before wiping your hands dry with a towel. And finally before you hit the sac, just dab on a generous amount of moisturizer on to your hands and massage it well into the skin.

Protect them against the sun

Before you step out in the sun, be sure to put on some sunscreen on your hands, to retard the development of wrinkles and sunspots on the skin. Just like your face skin, the skin of your hands suffers immense sun damage, in the absence of a sunscreen, which causes your hands to start looking older too soon.

Extra care

There are lots of specially formulated hand creams, fortified with vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, which help in preventing the formation of wrinkles on the skin of your hands. You might want to think about using the anti-ageing face cream on your hands, but it’s always advisable to get the anti-ageing cream that’s specifically meant for your hands, as the anti-ageing face cream may not be able to properly penetrate the thicker skin on your hands.
