How To Fix Granny Hands: The Best Rejuvenation Treatments/Procedures For Younger Looking Hands – Smart Beauty Guide
Since the skin around our hands happens to be the thinnest, our hands happen to age faster than other parts of our body. And even though we treat our complexions with the best care, our hands are often denied the same love and respect. To give your hands the treatment they deserve, Judit Galambosi, Lead Therapist at The Erno Laszlo Institute recommends to start exfoliating for renewed and rejuvenated-looking skin.
“Exfoliate your hands once a week. Sloughing off dead skin cells keep the skin youthful and help the penetration of the hand cream. For an at-home treatment, try this homemade scrub: mix ¼ teaspoon brown sugar with honey and a few drops of lemon juice,” Galambosi explains.
After exfoliating, it’s always best to replenish lost hydration with a good hand cream or moisturizer. So, like you would with your face, be sure to reapply protecting creams throughout the day, for best results.
“Always apply a light moisturizer after you wash your hands even if you just rinsed it. To help prevent the formation of age spots and wrinkles, make sure to use a hand cream with sunscreen. Use daily even if there is no sun and reapply throughout the day if necessary,” Galambosi states.
For some at-home hand-perfecting action, the Ahava Age Perfecting Hand Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15 offers maximum protection while working to even out skintone and keep your hands supple and smooth.
And for more hydrating goodness, turn to the H20 Plus Sea Results Anti-Aging Hand Cream, which brightens up dark spots and quickly absorbs into hands upon application.
Taking your hand care regimen overnight is another great way to go. If you want to deep condition your hands over night, grab a pair of cotton gloves and a hand treatment cream, and let the magic happen while you sleep.
“For overnight treatment, apply a heavier moisturizer to the hands and wear a cotton gloves to seal in the nourishing ingredients. Your skin will look renewed by the morning,” Galambosi says.
Skinceuticals Neck, Chest and Hand Repair is a great product to use if you’re looking to go the overnight repair route, as it helps support and repair lost collagen levels with continued use. Suitable for all skin types, this restoring and brightening duo surely delivers.
Additionally, the Erno Laszlo Luminous Intensive Hand Treatment SPF 25 gives you intense hand rejuvenation with botanical ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba and avocado oil. Plus protecting against photo-aging and skin discoloration, say hello to gorgeous selfies in no time!
