7 TIPS FOR YOUTHFUL & ELEGANT HANDS
Our hands do quite a lot of work, washing dishes, cooking, hanging out washing, cleaning and much much more. Hands are constantly exposed to water, detergents, UV, wind, cold and heat taking its toll on the thin delicate skin on the back of the hands and often making the nails weak and brittle. This is why hands can show the signs of aging faster than even the face. There is a saying, you want to know the true age of a person, look at the back of their hands.
The following tips will keep your hands looking smooth, soft, youthful and elegant.
CHOOSE MILD CLEANSERS AND DETERGENT
When washing the dishes, washing hands and doing household cleaning, choose milder and organic cleaning products that will not be as aggressive on your hands. Even better, wear gloves to protect your nails and the delicate skin on your hands.
PROTECT FROM UV DAMAGE
Always carry with you a small tube of sunscreen of at least SPF 30+. Choose lightweight formulas to prevent greasy hands and reapply every time you wash your hands. UV causes damage to the collagen and elastin in the skin making the skin thinner which can make the veins more obvious. UV also causes brown spots on the back of the hands.
Whenever you are in the shower and exfoliating the face, add a bit more scrub to the back of your hands and give them a nice scrub. This will make the skin smooth, reducing creepiness and brown spots. For deeper exfoliation, the peels we use on the face, neck, and decolletage to rejuvenate can also be used on the back of the hands. Try the new 50% Lactic peel to smooth, brighten and plump the skin on the back of the hands.
Place a tube of hand cream next to hand wash in the kitchen, bathroom and in your bag. Moisturise your hands after every wash to minimize dry cracked nails and crepey skin on the hands.
MINIMIZE BROWN SPOTS
If you have brown spots on the back of your hands, try IPL skin tone correction. A series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced 4 week apart are required for optimal results. Treatments on the backs of hands and forearms will respond well. More information: http://biiu.com.au/ipl-treatment/
