Moisturizing Daily For Soft And Smooth Hands
What's in this article
Your hands will feel softer when you moisturize daily. They will appear smoother, more youthful and supple. And the effects of aging will be less prominent.
If your hands are dry, then using a moisturizer frequently during the day will help rehydrate them. Remember to apply some before you head off to bed as well.
A daily dose of moisturizer may also benefit hands who do not suffer from being dry or chapped. It puts a barrier on your skin to seal moisture in, keeping them hydrated.
Hand Creams and Lotions are perfect for moisturizing. Most of them will have a blend of water and oil. The water in them re-hydrates cells and the oil keeps the moisture sealed in.
Fight Aging With Sunscreen
You can slow down the aging process when you use sunscreen. It provides some protection between you and the sunrays that can prematurely age your skin. A sunscreen should be used every day that you are going outside. This applies for both cloudy and sunny days.
There are two types of sunrays you need to protect yourself from. So the sunscreen you use needs to protect you from both. One that does this will either list that it is for UVA and UVB or be called a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Weekly Exfoliating Will Leave Your Hands Looking Radiant
Your hands will be smoother and look fresher when you exfoliate. This part of your hand care routine can be done one day a week and forgotten about for the rest. Just be careful not to over do it, or you will end up with dry skin.
The younger skin underneath will be revealed when you exfoliate. But you don’t have to buy an expensive Hand or Body scrub. A homemade scrub will work as well.
Just make sure that you use a light touch when exfoliating. You don’t damage your skin or irritate it. This is one instance where you don’t want to overdo it.
