Beautiful Hands at Any Age

Your hands are one of the quickest ways to give away your age. If you’re tired of hiding your hands behind your back to avoid embarrassment, why not take some simple measures to restore the beauty and youthfulness of one of your most valuable assets? Here’s how to have smoother looking, beautiful hands at every age.

Harness the Power of a Good Hand Cream.

Find a good hand cream and use it religiously. Hands deprived of moisture look and feel older. Apply hand cream several times a day, especially after exposing your hands to water, and you’ll see a big difference in the texture of your hands within a few days.

Use Gloves When Necessary.

If you’ll be washing dishes, gardening, or other activities that expose your hands to water or chemicals, put on a pair of protective gloves. Water and chemicals both take their toll on hands.

Wear a Protective Sunscreen on Your Hands.

Sunscreen isn’t just for your face. Your beautiful hands need sun protection too! Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB light. Use it when you go outside and reapply it after swimming or exposure to water.

Add Fish Oils to Your Diet.

Dry skin may respond to the omega 3 fatty acids found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements. Eat a fatty fish such as salmon several times per week. If you don’t enjoy the taste of fish, consider taking a fish oil supplement. A one gram capsule twice a day will not only help you have young looking hands, it’ll also help protect against heart disease.

Try Microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion can help to remove the surface skin cells that make the skin on your hands appear dull and dry. If done on a regular basis, this can help you achieve younger looking, beautiful hands. This procedure is usually done by an aesthetician at a doctor’s office or a salon.

If you aren’t able to achieve young looking hands with the above techniques, laser resurfacing performed by a plastic surgeon can help to remove wrinkles and brown spots that make hands look aged.
