Clinic Eleven Appearance and Skin Cancer Medicine On Improving Your Hands
We can easily protect the skin on our face and head with sunscreen, hats, wide sunglasses and avoiding other environmental factors which affect the skin’s appearance. But it’s hard to be as diligent with the skin on our hands.
Our hands are constantly ‘working’; washing or rinsing dishes and clothes, gardening, handling groceries or cooking and are all too often exposed to the sun and elements whilst driving and conducting day-to-day tasks. These effects are additive to the natural ageing process where changes to skin texture, pigmentation and volume have an impact on the appearance of our hands (particularly the back of our hands).
You may be looking fresh faced, but as the elements take their toll and the levels of substances like naturally occurring sugars and elastin (that give our hands youthful volume) deplete, your hands may be a tell-tale sign of age.
Some quick tips to good hand health:
Protect from the sun – apply a daily sunscreen with moisturiser to protect against harmful UV rays and keep skin supple. Wear gloves – especially when your hands are in soapy or hot water that can dry out skin. Look after your nails – keep hands well manicured, clean and dry.
