04 SECRETS TO MAKE YOUR HANDS 10 YEARS YOUNGER 

1.    Wash your hands correctly

Frequent contact with soap can make your hands lose moisture and start flaking. Follow these simple rules to avoid it:

-         Don’t use antibacterial soap unless absolutely necessary. Avoid perfumes: they dry your skin and may cause irritation. Opt for moisturizing soap with jojoba oil, olive oil, or aloe vera.

-         Wash your hands with warm but not hot water to preserve the natural protective layer.

-         Avoid electric dryers in favor of paper towels.

 

2.    Wear gloves

Your hands are constantly under stress due to external factors such as cold, chemicals, and dry air. To minimize the damage, you should have gloves for all occasions:

-         Leather or fur gloves or mittens for cold weather.

-         Rubber or latex ones for household chores (washing dishes, mopping floors, cleaning the bathtub, etc).

-         Cloth gloves for gardening.

 

3.    Moisten your hands regularly

 

A good hand cream is as crucial as soap or shampoo, so choose and use it wisely.

-         Apply the cream as needed but no less than twice a day (morning and evening). If you have dry skin, put a tube of cream near the sink and apply it every time after washing your hands. For best effect, apply the cream, put on cotton gloves, and go to bed like that.

-         Your nails need moisturizing too. Rub some hand cream into them, and purchase a vitamin E cream for the cuticles.

-         Your skin needs moisture from the inside as well as outside, so drink enough water.

-         Buy a humidifier, and turn it on when the air’s dry.

 

4.    Use sunscreen

One of the main signs of age is hand skin hyperpigmentation. The reason is not in aging or liver dysfunction, as you may have heard, but the effect of the sun. Age just triggers its accumulative property.

-         To avoid abundant pigment spots, regularly apply sunscreen to your hands.

-         Citrus fruits are a good natural "whitener." For example, you can regularly make masks out of 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp milk, and 1 tsp honey.
