If you are not taking care of your hands, they may be giving away your age. Hands are not only susceptible to the first signs of aging, but very often age even faster than the face. There is very little fat on the back of the hands, so when even a small amount of collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down – which is part of the normal aging process and partly from sun exposure – it’s going to have a noticeable impact on your hands.
1. The daily use of a simple moisturizer will improve the appearance of your hands. While moisturizer will not reverse sun damage or create new collagen, it can leave the skin looking plumper and more youthful. Since all moisturizers work more effectively when applied to skin that is slightly damp, use them after a shower or bath or after washing your hands.
2. Doctors agree one key to keeping young hands looking young is to avoid direct sunlight. The next best thing is to coat your hands with sunscreen several times a day.
3. MicroExfoliation treatments rejuvenate the skin on your hands. This is an effective technique for removing the top layer of the skin, leaving it supple and vibrant. The skin is gently exfoliated while at the same time the dead skin cells are vacuumed away. Not only does the procedure trigger collagen production, it also allows moisturizers to be more effective.
4. MicroCurrent treatments aid in reducing the signs of aging skin. Small electrical impulses trigger a chemical reaction that encourages the body to produce more collagen and elastin. A Platinum Touch Hand Renewal Treatment will give your hands a healthy more youthful appearance.
