Most people pay attention on the aging of their face. They do not realize that aging can also appear on other places in the body. Most of the signs of aging show on the hands. If you remember to moisturize, exfoliate, and apply sunscreen to your face and neck on a usual basis, you should also do the same to your hands. If you are like most people, chances are your usual answer would be a ‘No’. Making the habit of taking care of your hands through a regimen can make you look 5 or more years younger. With regular care, you will have smoother, younger-looking skin. Here are some tips that will help you achieve this:
Exfoliate. This act will remove the dead layer of skin. It feels great when you do it on your face, right? It will equally feel good on your hands. If you are unable to remove the layer of dead skin, the lotion that you applied will have to work its way through. Exfoliate at least once a week and feel the difference of a smoother skin.
Keep a bottle of lotion by your sink. It is true that you may apply a moisturizer at the start of the day but when it is time to wash, it comes off with the water. Keep a bottle of lotion by the sink so that every time you wash, all you will have to do is reapply. You will see that there is a difference after about two weeks.
Moisturize your cuticles. Keep your cuticles hydrated because they can turn dry after getting yourself a manicure or pedicure.
Apply sunscreen every day. Exposure to the sun can cause early signs of aging.
Wear gloves. Protect yourself from harmful elements such as laundry detergents. Latex gloves will keep you from coming in contact with harmful chemicals.
Now you want to live longer, look younger, and lose weight, right?
