Tips for Taking Care of Our Hands

Hands

The best advice I give to my patients is before you notice a problem, begin treatment and prevention, and seek help before a small problem becomes a big problem.

Hand care routine to avoid aging hands:                                                                                       

  1. First, use sunscreen! Daily sun exposure can lead to brown sun spots, wrinkles and thin skin. UV radiation causes 80% of skin changes linked with aging so make sure and reapply frequently.
  2. Seek out the best hand cream for aging hands. Look for a hand cream that contains ceramides. Ceramides are molecules that help form a protective layer and retain moisture. 
  3. Use your face antiaging cream on your hands too.
  4. Avoid over washing your hands. Daily habits like frequent hand washing, doing the dishes, yard work, cleaning with chemicals, and forgetting to apply hand cream can extremely dry out and damage your hands. Wear gloves when you can to avoid the wear and tear. 
  5. Go the extra mile: If you live in a dry climate, such as Arizona, taking an extra step of applying a luxuriously hydrating hand cream to the front and back of hand at night can be very beneficial. In addition you use spa gloves once a week for an hour or use paraffin wax hand bath.
