No matter how much care you take over your skincare routine, if you neglect the skin on your hands they will let your appearance down. Exposed to the elements on a daily basis, your hands can take a battering! So, what can you do to keep them looking young?
- Use hand cream generously. Dermalogica’s Multivitamin Hand and Nail Cream soothes, protects, repairs and strengthens nails and skin and its non-greasy formula allow you to use it as often as necessary. Apply the cream whenever the skin feels dry or shows signs of dehydration and once a week, slather it on and put on cotton gloves before you go to bed!
- Protect the skin from UV rays. Exposure to the sun can cause areas of hyper pigmentation, commonly known as age spots; the hands are particularly vulnerable to sun damage and need to be protected. Just as you use a moisturiser with an SPF for your face, so should you use a sunscreen for your hands if you want to delay the onset of signs of ageing!
Taking a little time to look after your hands can have fantastic results, leaving them feeling and looking great.
