Your hands are often abused and neglected, however, aging faster and more prominently than other areas of the body.

Your hands may develop age spots, wrinkles and dry skin, making them appear older than they should, because they’re used daily and often exposed to harsh elements. From windy and cold weather to repeated hand washing, your hands take the brunt of the work you do every day.

Dish washing, showers and hand washing removes natural oils from skin, causing uncomfortable cracking and drying that ages the skin. Wearing gloves during dish washing, using a hand exfoliator and moisturizing will preserve a more youthful appearance. During colder months, moisturizing before putting on gloves will protect hands from the harsh environment while locking in the nourishing moisture.

How do you remember to baby your hands? Put lotion next to each sink in the house and keep a small bottle with you at all times. Regular moisturizing will prevent pesky age spots, wrinkles and dry, cracked skin to create a more youthful appearance.
