Most women spend time caring for their facial skin, but often neglect their hands to a great extent. Even having decorated or polished nails won’t cover up hands that are wrinkled and old looking. And since the state of our hands can give away our age to some extent, anyone who wants to look younger should give their hands some TLC.
Here are some tips to keep your hands happy
- Wear cotton gloves outside if you are working in the garden or mowing.
- Wear rubber gloves while washing up and when using harsh chemicals for cleaning.
- Don’t put your hands in really hot or icy cold water as this will turn them red and the hot water will take all the natural oils out of them.
- Wear sunscreen on the backs of your hands – and lower arms – when driving for long periods. Don’t put it on your palms as it can make your hands slippery. You can also wear fingerless gloves while driving to protect your hands from sun damage.
