Did you know this about your hands?

 

By the age of 30 skin-cell production decreases by 10 percent, making your skin less efficient at repairing itself.  More than half of women over age 30 believe their hands are aging faster than any other body part.  The skin of our hands is as delicate as the skin of our eyelids.  Yet, we would never plunge our face into scalding hot water, scrub it with abrasive soaps, rub it dry with a towel, and then walk away without moisturizing.  But, that’s what we do to our hands upwards of 10 times a day.  The biggest hand offenders include water, harsh detergents, dehydrating anti-bacterial gels, lack of moisturizing and sun.  So how do we care for our hands that are the “workhorses” of our body and keep them young and healthy-looking?

 

The top 5 hand care do’s are:

 

~    Take care in washing your hands since water is DEHYDRATING to the skin.  Use a sulfate-free soap and tepid water when washing and moisturize with a hand cream (oil based) immediately to lock in hydration after each hand washing. 

 

    Wear protective waterproof gloves when cleaning, doing housework or projects around the house to minimize exposure to chemicals and the need for repeated hand washing.

 

~     Exfoliate gently (at least once a week), rinse, pat dry and moisturize immediately. Hands are among the top three body parts to show signs of aging.

 

~     Protect hands from UVA/UVB exposure.  Always apply sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30, to the tops of your hands.  The hands are among the most likely places for skin cancer to develop.

 

~     Take time to care for nails and cuticles.  AVOID HANGNAILS BY DRYING YOUR CUTICLES THOROUGHLY.
