No matter how many beauty products you apply to your face to look youthful, if you ignore your hands, they will give out your real age — as taking care of your hands is as important as taking care of face.
The following simple products will help you take care of the skin of your hands.
Sunscreen: Most of us use sunscreen only on our faces or arms, if they are exposed. Your hands are just as susceptible to sun damage. In fact, studies have shown that most wrinkles and discolourations on our skin are a result of the harmful rays of the sun. Next time you apply, sunscreen to your face, dab some on your hands and don’t forget to reapply.
Antioxidants: Apply any of your facial antioxidant cream or serum on your hands to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the environment.
Moisturise: Use a hand lotion regularly to keep your hands moisturised. In fact, you can use a lotion enriched with alpha hydroxyl acids, oils and vitamins.
Protect your hands: It’s not just application of creams that will help keep your hands looking young. You need to also protect them while you are doing household chores like dishwashing, gardening, scrubbing etc. Wear gloves while doing work, so that you don’t just protect the skin on your hands but also don’t harm your finger nails.
