The 7 best anti-aging tricks for hands

Anti-aging for the hands

The hands tell you the real age, it is said. We'll tell you which everyday habits make them age faster and how they stay beautiful longer.
While we care for our face lovingly and carefully examine every small wrinkle and age spot there, many women neglect the care of their hands on a regular basis. Well-groomed hands are particularly important since they are the parts of the body that age the fastest (and are mostly visible).
If you want to radiate youthfulness, you should take care of the right care and let some bad habits be quick in everyday life. If you follow these seven things, you can slow down the aging process. A small anti-aging program for the hands:

1. Do not clean without gloves

It is not new that the chemicals contained in detergents and cleaning agents attack sensitive skin on the hands. However, many women do not wear gloves when doing housework. A big mistake: every time you touch the dish and the like, moisture is removed from the skin. In the long run, this promotes wrinkling.

2. More cream

It is part of every beauty ritual that we apply our face in the morning and evening. Daily creaming of the hands is even more important. This is because the hands produce fewer natural oils than the face. Therefore, they should always be supplied with sufficient moisture. Tip: When buying the hand cream, pay attention to anti-aging ingredients such as Q10, hyaluronic, antioxidants, and retinol.

3. UV protection for the hands

When buying our face cream, we automatically check whether it contains a sun protection factor. Because: If we forget the sun protection, it favors the age spots. With our hands, it is, unfortunately, the same. Before you leave the house in the morning, treat your hands to a layer of hand cream with UV protection. So pigment and age spots have no chance.

4. Don't forget the peeling

Our hands have to go through a lot every day. That is why it is important to clean them regularly and to get rid of dead skin cells. This works best with a fine (self-made) peeling. Here's how it works: Mix two tablespoons of brown sugar with a tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil every two weeks - done.

5. Massages promote blood circulation

It is not only a relief to release tensions and knots that have accumulated during the day during a hand massage, it also stimulates the blood circulation. If the small massage is combined with the application of oil, the skin rejoices in a real rejuvenation.

6. Avoid nail polishing

Frequent nail polishing is not harmful in itself, but the associated nail polish removal is. The liquids for removal dry out our sensitive skin. Therefore, it is important to give your nails a break from nail polish every now and then. If you want to give them a new coat of paint, you should give your hands an extra helping of moisture after they have been removed.

7. Don't wash too often

Especially in winter and the associated colds that are in circulation, we tend to wash our hands very often. Washing the hands too often can also damage the hands, as it permanently deprives the skin of its natural oils. Make sure that you only use a mild soap without fragrances in your hand wash (with olive oil, aloe vera or jojoba oil) and do not use disinfectants. Better to dry with paper towels than with a hairdryer.
