When most people think of anti-aging skin care, they think of products for their face. Crow’s feet, laugh lines, mouth creases, and pigmentation are high on everyone’s list of things to avoid. But, did you know that, no matter how hard you work on keeping your face youthful, your hands might be giving you away?

The truth is, our hands start showing visible signs of aging long before the face. It makes sense when you think about it; the hands do everything, without much help in the skin care department! You may slather your face in moisture or SPF, but it usually takes until the hands start to sting with dryness before a hand cream is applied.

Generally without topical protection, hands are (hopefully) washed multiple times a day with soaps, they sit in the sun while you drive, they clean, prepare food, and are exposed to every bit of weather imaginable. It’s actually amazing that hands don’t start showing visible signs of aging sooner!

When they do start to show signs of wear and tear, the hands are quick to become dry, wrinkled, rough, and discolored. Sun spots appear, and elasticity is diminished. If you’ve been taking care of the skin on your face, you may look youthful and healthy at first glance, but a quick look down and you’ll be able to see how your hands are aging you.

The best way to avoid aging hands is to prevent damage. Using a daily hand cream will keep skin moisturized and protected against environmental damage. Rather than applying your hand lotion only when your skin feels dry, incorporate hand care into your morning skin care regimen.

If you’ve already started to see visible signs of aging on the hands, it’s not too late! Atopalm’s Moisturizing Hand Treatment is designed to both prevent and repair the damage that causes wrinkling, dry skin, pigmentation, and more.
