Before jumping into all of your gardening and spring cleaning, stop to protect your hands! Did you know the earliest signs of aging are revealed in our hands? The skin on the back of our hands is very thin and delicate and as it loosens over time, our veins become very noticeable. Our hands can also develop sun spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Here are 5 tips for youthful hands:
*Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!- Use a heavy hand cream or intensive hand therapy treatment daily. After washing, apply cream to hands, nails, and cuticles. For a treatment before bed, pour out the lotion from your Scandle Shimmering Lotion Candle to help hydrate skin, hide wrinkles, and deflect light.
*Wear sunscreen- The sun causes 90% of wrinkling and discoloration. Apply sunscreen with a high SPF to the back of your hands before heading outdoors and even before a long road trip.
*Exfoliate- Use a scrub like Scandle Sea Salt Soak & Scrub twice a week to remove dead skin cells and reveal glowing skin.
*Wear protective gloves- When handling chemicals, gardening, or doing dishes, wear rubber gloves lined with cotton to protect your hands.
*Use Mild Soap- Use soap like Dove or Oil of Olay that also conditions and moisturizes skin.
