My hands are my business. I have to take good care of them if I plan to keep working. Are your hands important to your lifestyle or work?
If aesthetics are important to you, how your hands look can be of interest. Spots, roughness, dryness, lines and the flattening of the once-plump tissues make hands look sinewy or skeletal, with prominent veins.
The skin on the hands is the thinnest on the body; only the skin around the eye is more delicate. Hands contain no oil glands. They are unprotected from the elements much of the year.
Common culprits in hand aging include alcohol-based cleansing and antibacterial products, doing yard work or housework without protective gloves, not using hand lotion after washing, not wearing gloves in cold dry weather.
Pain in the hands and fingers is also a problem for many of my clients. Whether its arthritis or overuse (typing, texting or other repetitive motions), pain in the hands can affect your mood adversely.
I have a few treatments that help make hands look and feel better.
All natural scrub, mask and massage - these treatments smooth and rehydrate the skin, while the massage of the hands, wrists and arms is a deeply soothing and de-stressing and helps to move lymphatic fluid more effectively, as well as relieve tension and discomfort from repetitive motions.
LED Light Therapy - builds collagen to reduce appearance of veins and gives a plumper appearance. Collagen makes hands stronger and more flexible. LED also reduces inflammation and pain in your hands. Its my personal favorite for my hard-working hands.
Microdermabrasion and All Natural Brightening Serums - this treatment is helpful for spots on the hands caused by aging and sun damage.
So develop a new habit today of caring for your hands - its easy and takes very little time.
