Do You Know How to Take Proper Care of Your Hands?

We all want to keep our hands looking young and healthy for as long as possible. However, given the tasks you need to accomplish during the busy workday (and after work when the chores are calling) that require the use of your hands, you might find it challenging to maintain their appearance. These beauty tips will help you keep your hands in perfect condition even as you start ageing.

Moisturise regularly

Keeping your hands moisturised is an excellent way to keep them looking young and smooth. You can purchase a hand moisturiser that you can carry with you in your tote at all time, so when you feel like your hands are starting to dry, you can use the moisturiser right away! Also, when you purchase soap for washing your hands, find one that doubles as a moisturiser

Use lukewarm water when washing

You wash your hands because you want them to be clean, right? Therefore, you need to use soap that contains ingredients that kill germs and bacteria. To further achieve that goal, it helps if you use lukewarm water as it can also help kill germs. Just make sure that the water is not too hot as it could make your hands dry

Exfoliate your hands weekly

You need to remove the dry skin from your hands to allow new and healthy skin to come out. Regular exfoliation will be helpful. You can use a scrub to remove dead skin cells gently. You might also want to go to a spa to ask the experts to help you exfoliate. After exfoliating, you need to use hand cream to keep your hands soft and moist.

Treat crack in your hands

When you start seeing cracks in your hands, you know its time to treat them using ointment. Do not wait until the cracks worsen before doing something about it. When you start ageing, the cracks become visible, and you need to act right away

Use sunscreen

You do not only use sunscreen to protect your face against the heat of the sun. You also use it for your hands. The problem with severe exposure to the sun is that it does not only burn your skin. It could also make the skin look dry and old. The UV rays coming from the sun will speed up the ageing process and also lead to potential skin diseases. Therefore, you need to use sunscreen before heading out of your home.

Hand rejuvenation

Apart from these natural strategies to keep your hands looking lovely and smooth, you might also want to maximise the availability of modern technology. Hand rejuvenation is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces the lines on your hands and makes them look young. It is relatively painless and easy to recover from. You can see drastic changes in no time!

Given these beauty tips, you do not have an excuse for dry hands. Ageing is a natural process, but there are ways to prevent the signs from showing. You also need to have a positive disposition so that your body keeps releasing hormones that will make you look young
