True tellers of time: Your hands!

Posted by on

When it comes to skincare, hand care is pretty underrated even though we’re constantly using and working with our hands. Much like your face and the rest of your body, your hands can age and wrinkle over time, that’s why it’s so important to take proper care of our hands whenever we can. As you age, your hands lose fat, volume, and elasticity. This reduced volume and decreased elasticity produce translucent skin that wrinkles and develops age spots. You work hard to keep your skin looking young and youthful, neglecting your hands may give away your biggest secret: your true age!

 

Turn back the clock with these simple tips:

1. Moisturize

Hydration is key. Don’t let your hands dry out by applying hand cream regularly throughout the day even after washing your hands. The top of your hand is the one area that dries up faster as the skin has no oil glands. We recommend Viva's The One Ultra Rich Hand Cream as it will not only boost moisture levels in the skin but prevent aging and protect your skin from sun exposure. Formulated with coconut oil and mango butter, this hand cream provides the extra nourishment your hands are craving. This hand cream also includes zinc oxide, which is effective at blocking UVA and UVB rays.

2. Protect your skin with gloves

Remember to use gloves in whether harsh cold weather conditions, when performing labour-intensive work around the home such as gardening or renovations, or even when using harsh chemicals, such as strong bathroom soaps containing bleach or even while painting.

3. Eat a healthy diet

A balanced diet with plenty of vitamins, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids nourishes your skin and helps you grow healthy nails. If your diet is lacking certain nutrients, this affects not only your skin but your nails as well.

We’re washing and sanitizing our hands a lot more than we used to, which may break down our skin’s natural moisture barrier. Don’t let rough, dry, and brittle hands expose your golden years. Let this be our little secret 😉
