They are constantly on the go, always exposed to the elements, and rarely treated with the proper care that they deserve. We’re talking about your hands, of course. The hands are among the first to reveal what happens when we age including both the unavoidable (loss of fat in the skin, which makes veins become more noticeable) and past behaviors that added to these effects of aging (sun spots and thin “crepey” skin caused by too much sun). If you have been spending your weekly manicure staring down and wistfully wishing you could turn back the hands of time, know that it’s not too late to start implementing daily changes to protect your hands and give them a more youthful appearance.
Small, Handy Solutions…
Cover up those delicate hands with gloves every time you are outside in cold weather. Exposure to harsh, cold air causes dryness and leads to a more weathered appearance. Similarly, gloves offer protection indoors when you are cleaning and/or washing dishes. As we age, the skin’s barrier function decreases, making it more vulnerable to the irritants in soap and cleaning products.
Turn off the hot water when washing your hands! There is no science to support that washing your hands in hot water kills more germs but it most certainly dries out your hands and increases the chances of chapped skin. Use lukewarm water instead and follow immediately with an application of a hand care product.
Lending a Bigger Helping Hand…
In addition to these small lifestyle changes, an effective hand care product can help transform the look of your hands. New Sisleÿa L’Integral Anti-Age Hand Care Anti-Aging Concentrate is a revolution in hand care, as it provides both protection and anti-aging benefits with every application.
Sisley’s researchers naturally included Buckwheat seed extract to help combat pollutants and free-radicals that can damage the skin on the hands. While these ingredients are preventing the future formation of dark spots, brightening agents in the formula are acting on existing dark spots to visibly reduce their appearance.
Glycerin, Shea Oil, and Harpagophytum extract provide nourishing and soothing benefits by delivering optimal moisture and key nutrients that help the hands feel softer to the touch and maintain the look of healthy skin.
The thinning of the skin and increased prominence of veins can be the most troublesome signs of aging in the hands. To address these concerns Sisley’s new treatment combines Padina Pavonica and Persian Acacia extract to create a significantly more plumped appearance. This effect reduces the look of veins and creates visibly, younger-looking hands.
