We are all pretty well versed on what it takes to keep our skin looking younger. We use the right night creams, sunscreens, exfoliants and antioxidant serums to help keep our faces line-free. But don’t overlook one of the biggest age-giveaways -- your hands! They tend to be exposed to harsh elements more often than any other body part and it shows.
So how do you get your hands to help keep your secret?
5 Tips to Keep Your Hands Looking Younger:
1. Treat your hands the way you treat your face.
This means moisturize frequently, slather them with sunscreen and minimize their exposure to the elements. Don’t forget you can use brightening products on your hands as well.
2. Exfoliate them regularly.
By keeping your hands exfolitated, your moisturizer will be able to do its job more effectively.
3. Look for products that contain lanolin.
And not just any lanolin, superfine, pure-grade lanolin like Theraderm uses in their products. Lanolin replaces the moisture barrier ensuring your hands stay hydrated throughout the day.
4. Wear gloves.
We know it seems weird these days, but the best way to keep your hands from aging is to protect them from the sun. This is especially important when driving because the UV rays come straight through the glass to your hands.
5. Don’t forget your nails.
Unhealthy, yellowing nails can really age you. Apply cuticle oil daily and brighten nails with lemon juice if they start getting dingy.
