Here's How To Reduce The Signs Of Aging On Your Hands
Your hands are one of the first body parts to show signs of aging due to environmental factors like sun exposure and the stress we put them through. Our hands do not have as much subcutaneous fat as our face does, so they lose even more fat and collagen over the years, leading to older-looking hands.
Antiseptic soaps and hand sanitizers often contain alcohol which strips your hands of natural oils, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and cracked or dry skin. Instead, use a hydrating hand wash with a moisturizing hand cream with ceramides or hyaluronic acid, and exfoliation is key to keeping your hand soft, supple, and healthy.
Use sunscreen, like Supergood! Handscreen SPF 40, to protect your hands from age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, sunburns, hyperpigmentation, and UV rays. Remember to apply sunscreen between your fingers and knuckles and reapply every two hours; another option to prevent sun damage is wearing gloves.
Procedures like fat or synthetic injections fill up the lack of fat in the hands and make them look more youthful. Dermal filler, micro-needling, and intense pulsed light PhotoFacial are also recommended for hand wrinkles and fat loss, but if you prefer less invasive procedures, chemical peels, cryotherapy, and laser therapy work just as well.
