The daily tasks we do affect the skin cells in our hands and cause skin aging there. From washing the dishes to gripping a steering wheel, we know the hands are the powerhouse of the body, they do the most. That is just for the palms though. The skin on the back of our hands is very light and can start showing signs of skin aging before any other part of the body.
To keep your hands healthy and youthful, apply these tips daily:
Protect Your Hands
If you’re already at an age where skin aging is a concern for you, start wearing gloves when you do cleaning chores. Use moisturizing bar soaps to wash your hands and avoid using hot water. Tepid water is best.
Wear Hand Creams with SPF
UVA rays are responsible for most skin aging signs, so protect your hands from the sun. Use a hand cream with at least SPF 25 in it and remember to apply every two hours whenever you’re outside.
Keep Bottles of Lotion Everywhere
At every sink you usually use, keep a small bottle of lotion. Washing your hands is a quick way to dry them out, you need to replace the hydration immediately.
Hand care can be a tasking routine to build, but if you stick with it long enough, it’s only a matter of time before you begin to see it as just another thing you do every day.
