How to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on fingers and hands
Your bathroom is probably full of all the anti-ageing facial creams and serums you could want to keep your skin looking younger and healthier. When it comes to your hands though, these hard workers are often overlooked and left to face the weather and ageing alone. If you’re looking for ways and anti-ageing creams to help them look their best, you’re in good hands.
What’s behind my ageing hands?
Like your face, your hands are constantly exposed to the ever-changing weather, so they’re often the first to show signs of ageing. Just as your face needs extra protection from the sun and UV damage all year round, you should apply a daily dose of SPF to your hands to prevent age spots and wrinkles on fingers. In the colder months, hand creams rich in hydrating hyaluronic acid and glycerin are key to comforting dry and chapped skin and strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. Keeping dehydrated skin nourished not only soothes and softens hands but helps to prevent premature ageing.
Over washing can strip natural oils and dry out our hands. As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen which can also cause skin to thin and sag. What more reasons do you need to reach for that hand cream now!
