Most women think nothing of spending a small fortune on fabulous skin care, anti-aging creams, and a youthful new haircut. Anything that will make us look and feel younger is well worth the money…that is, until it comes to our hands.
Dark spots, lines, creases and bulging veins on your hands always give away your age! And believe it or not, our hands are the first areas where women often see the signs of aging. This is because our hands are frequently exposed to sunlight – without any protection – and this prematurely ages the skin.
Your Hands And Anti-Aging
The good news is that your hands can help to make you look as young as you feel…and the process all begins with sunblock that contains a good moisturizer. But you have to make a commitment to use it every time you’re out in the sun, whether in summer or winter.
This will help halt at least some of the damage that comes when the ultraviolet rays of the sun gobble up collagen, which is the molecules that help give skin a plump, youthful appearance.
Day cream, night cream, anti-aging serums…whatever you’re putting on your face and neck should be applied to the backs of your hands as well. But if you’re thinking of trying to fade those age spots using an over-the-counter bleaching or whitening cream, you may be wasting your time and money.
How to Rejuvenate Your Hands!
Following are some ways for making your hands look young again.
Osmosis Skin Care Renew/Correct. Correct is our natural anti-aging serum that contains ingredients that are proven to dramatically improve the skin. This wonderful anti-aging cream uses 7 different collagen / elastin stimulators to remodel the skin. This product has the unique ability to increase the amount of skin food (since nutrition to our skin decreases as we age), increase the amount of collagen and elastin production and remodel scarring.
Plumping Treatments. The goal here is to replace the lost fat under the top layer of skin on the backs of the hands with a filler. This works to plump the skin, taking away that bony skeleton look, and fill out wrinkles. It’s also a great way to hide those bulging veins and tendons, which also age the hands.
The most popular choice is a man-made filler known is Radiesse, which is injected and there is basically no down time.
IPL (fotofacial) Treatments use pulses of visible light that effectively improve the visible signs of sun damage and aging. You can expect to see your skin become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots.
