Give Yourself a Hand – for Maintaining Beautiful Hands

Maintain beautiful handsMaintaining beautiful hands is important for retaining a youthful look at any age. Your hands get the most exposure and show your age the most, so care of them is care for your age. Knowing how to maintain your hands as you age is the best way to make sure they look your best and that you, in turn, look your youngest and best.

Premature aging is most often caused by exposure to the sun. In your 20’s is the best time to begin protecting your hands. At least twice a day, use your Shea moisturizing cream.

Nothing will give away your age quicker than the condition of your hands. Let’s take a look at some tips to try and hold off the ravages of time.

  • Yes, they are awkward, but wear rubber gloves while cleaning. Chemicals in the cleaning products are doing a number on your hands.
  • Apply Shea butter cream directly to the spots to fade the discoloration. covering up some of those age spots
  • If you spend hours at a time on the computer, be sure you use a rest for your wrists. It will help ward off carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Do your hands feel like sandpaper? Soften them up with a coating of Shea butter cream then slip them into inexpensive cotton gloves. Do this just before bed and by the time you wake up in the morning, your hands will be silky smooth.
  • About once a week, exfoliate the skin on your hands by using a facial scrub. Removing old dead skin will help the daily moisturizer you are applying to penetrate deeper into your skin. Finally, apply your Shea butter skin cream nightly to your hands. This will help fade minor brown spots and discoloration that may already be infiltrating the skin on your hands. Beware, though, if you are not using your Shea butter hand cream regularly, the spots will reappear.
  • As you enter your 30’s, your estrogen levels will begin to drop. This drop will cause more dryness in your hands than you experienced in your 20’s. In addition, this is the time when the first signs of photo aging may occur (loss of tone in your skin or blotchiness). There are still steps you can take. Each morning, when you get up, apply your Shea butter moisturizing cream. This will help to keep dead cells from accumulating on your skin’s surface. You will also tend to lose moisture during the night. To prevent this, apply Shea moisturizing cream to the backs of your hands about a half an hour before you go to bed.
