When it comes to our face our anti-aging program is like clock-work...moisturizers, sunscreens, hydrating products, retin-A, wrinkle fighting serums etc. Our hands, not so much ! A youth preservation plan for our delicate and depraved hands is a must! Here are a few tell-tale signs that make hands look old.
Age spots : Which have nothing to do with age. " Age spots are the result of sun exposure, " explains Eileen Lambroza, MD, clinical instructor of dermatology at New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center. Short of chronically wearing gloves a dollop of sunscreen should be applied to hands before heading out the door. And re-applied throughout the day if in the sun.
Crepey skin : If backs of the hands begin looking crimpey start using a collagen thickening cream to improve texture.
Flaky skin : Two words...exfoliate and hydrate .
For a solution to these giveaway signs try Lumiquin by Revision Skincare. Lumiquin is a brightening treatment or younger looking hands. This night-time formula is packed with almighty anti-aging ingredients and anti-oxidants. Lumiquin brightens the skin, minimizes imperfections, enhances skin's moisture level and supports skin's natural moisture. Diacetyl Boldine helps brighten skin.
