Your face is not the only part of your body that succumbs to the aging process. Your hands are also quite susceptible to the appearance of wrinkles. In fact, it is far more susceptible to the aging process because it is constantly exposed to external aging elements.
Trust me when I say that having a multitude of hand wrinkles can put a damper to your self-esteem. We use our hands daily to interact with other people. You have to take good care of your hands to avoid wrinkles. Here are a couple of tips you would want to try:
1. Use a paraffin mask for your hands at least once a week.
This treatment does not only work in avoiding wrinkles. It also works in getting rid of the fine lines and creases that are already there. That it is because it is a natural wrinkle filler that plumps up the skin and facilitates a circumspect renewal of dermis tissues. Moreover, it enhances circulation.
Mix half a cup of paraffin, a teaspoon of white clay, a teaspoon of oat flour, a teaspoon of lavender, 3 drops of lavender oil, 2 drops of rose essence, and a teaspoon of elder blossoms. Melt paraffin blocks on a pan and add the herbs. Remove the pan from the fire and add the essential oils. Let the mixture cool down a bit before applying it all over your hands.
2. Keep it hydrated all the time.
Washing our hands frequently can strip away the essential moisture and lipids in it. Bring a bottle of your moisturizing product wherever you go so you can apply when needed. Our skin has better healing and regenerative properties if it is properly hydrated.
Look for a moisturizing product loaded with CynergyTK and Phytessence Wakame. CynergyTK is an ingredient that has been extracted from the wool of sheep. It is made up of functional keratin, the protein that your skin needs in producing more collagen and elastin. This will bring back the youthful functions of your dermis. Phytessence Wakame can help prolong the life of collagen fibers. This sea weed can help preserve healthy levels of hyaluronic acid. This acid is vital for collagen lubrication.
3. When cleaning or handling chemical cleaners, use rubber gloves.
Do not expose your dermis directly to chemical substances as they can be extremely damaging. When cleaning, use rubber gloves to protect your hands. It will also prevent your skin from getting soaked in water too long.
You should treat your hands well. Avoid hand wrinkles before they start appearing.
