Have you ever noticed that some women have hands that look younger than their faces? Do you wonder why this occurs? One reason is that some women forget to properly care for their hands. They remember to take the steps to properly fight age and the environmental factors when it comes to their face, but they tend to forget their hands, unless they are feeling dry. This is a bad mistake and one that women need to correct today. They can do this by following these simple steps:
Use Moisturizing Hand Creams Daily
Women and men alike should be using moisturizing hand creams daily. In fact, these creams and lotions should be used a few times a day and especially at night. These creams can help soften the skin and help the skin appear younger. It does this by drawing water into the skin.
Daytime hand creams should also contain SPF 30 to help protect the hands from sun damage. This damage can occur from every day activities, even driving and riding in everyday traffic.
Use Anti-aging Products To Reduce The Appearance Of Age Spots
Age Spots on the hands is a quick way to make one look older. However, these age spots can be reduced by applying certain anti-aging lotions that caters to the reduction of age spots. According to the website, WebMD, one should look for products that contain either hydroquinone or alpha-hydroxy acids for the best results. If these products do not work or if you prefer a quicker method, consult your dermatologist about laser removal treatments.
Take Better Care Of Your Nails
If your nails look healthy, your hands will automatically look younger. Healthy nails are nails that are well groomed and are not dry or brittle looking. If your fingernails are beginning to feel or look brittle, add more of the vitamin 7 to your diet. You can also eat foods such as oats, soybeans, walnuts and brown rice.
When giving yourself a manicure, always push back your cuticles with an orange stick. Never cut your cuticles. You should also use a nail polish remover that is alcohol remover.
You should moisturize your nails, just as you do your hands. They can be easily moisturized with a cuticle cream, some petroleum jelly, or some vitamin E. oil.
Finally, one should watch the soaps they use when they are washing their hands. Yes, they want to wash away the germs. Yet, they don’t want to wash away the oils their skin needs or dehydrate their hands. The best way to wash your hands is with a moisturizing liquid cleanser. However, if you prefer a bar soap, consider using a glycerin base soap or a bar soap that is made from sunflower or soybean oil.
Remember your hands are noticeable. Don’t let them show your true age or look even older than you are. Help them to look as young as the rest of you.
