How to get rid of wrinkles on your hand?
Like other parts of your body, your hands need special attention and care. However, most of us focus so much on facial skin care routines that we often neglect our hands. As we age, wrinkles appear on our hands.
We can’t prevent it from thinning and skin aging, but we can slow it down in simple ways.
Why do our hands look wrinkled?
The skin of our hands is delicate. As we age, it tends to lose elasticity, leading to wrinkles. Some specific reasons for the wrinkles on our hand are excessive washing, dehydration, excessive sun exposure, repeated exposure to chemicals and routine activities such as cleaning and washing dishes.
Steps to get rid of wrinkles on our hands
Hydrate Your hands regularly †
Moisturizing our hand helps to get good skin. If your skin is oily, use a mild moisturizer. If you have combination skin, moisten areas that are usually very dry.
Apply sunscreen †
Before going out in the sun, we make sure to apply sunscreen all over our face and neck, but most of the time we ignore our hands. Sun exposure leads to uneven pigmentation, brown spots and wrinkles. When our skin is exposed to extreme sunlight, the elastin and collagen fibers in the skin break down and the skin loses fiber support leading to wrinkles. Apply sunscreen to the exposed areas to protect your skin. Make sure to wear full sleeves. You can also wear sun-protective gloves to protect your hand.
Scrub your hands †
As we age, the natural exfoliation process slows down and dead skin cells build up. Be sure to exfoliate your hands with a mild scrub at least twice a week to remove dead skin cells. This also speeds up cell turnover and smoothes out the wrinkles and fine lines on your hands.
Keep yourself hydrated †
Drink plenty of water to keep your body’s tissues and cells refreshed and hydrated. Drinking plenty of water also flushes toxins from the body and aids digestion, maintains body temperature, and keeps skin healthy and hydrated. Aim to drink at least 7 to 8 glasses of water every day.
Rest your hands †
Get enough sleep every night for happy and healthy skin. Sleep gives your body time to replenish itself and promotes the skin’s natural repair process.
Follow a skincare routine for a good night’s sleep†
Before going to sleep, moisten your hands better so that the moisturizer is absorbed well. Be sure to use a moisturizer made up of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid.
