younger-handsAs we age, our skin changes in many ways. Our skin slowly begins to lose its smooth appearance and then it’s replaced with fine lines and imperfections. One of the places we notice these changes is our hands and find that they can easily give away our age.

The skin contains hyaluronic acid and natural fat that help keep it flexible and full and keep its young appearance. The natural fat and hyaluronic acid slowly deteriorate as time passes due to many effects. Exposure to too much sun, stress, washing, and other factors will impact the way your skin looks, making your skin more prone to visible signs like veins, wrinkles and age spots on our hands.

There are different ways to reduce and prevent the possibility of imperfections on your hands. Here are 3 ways to help your hands stay youthful.

  1. Use Moisturizers and Sunscreen

One method to keep your hands looking youthful is to moisturize daily. There are many hand creams available to prevent your hands from getting dry and stay soft all day long. There are also hand creams that contain SPF 50 or higher to protect against UV sun rays.

Sunscreen is an essential moisturizer that you should be applying several times daily. Too much sun or UV rays will damage the proteins in your skin like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These proteins keep your skin glowing and flexible. Applying moisturizers help your skin maintain its elasticity and applying sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV rays.

  1. Wash and Clean with Gloves On

The same way too much exposure to the sun affects our skin, water can also have an impact. Constantly washing and cleaning without any gloves on will dry your hands. Hot water and dish soap will slowly take away your natural skin oils. This may cause your hands to get dry and appear rough and cracked. Washing or cleaning with gloves can help your maintain their moisture and protect them.
