Well, we use our hands to perform just about every daily task. It’s therefore surprising, how many women spend huge amounts of money on skincare products for their face and treatments for their hair, yet don’t give a second thought to caring for their hands.
Our hands are one of the first areas on our bodies to show the ravages of time. This is because the skin on our hands is much thinner than the facial skin and therefore subjected to more damage. Moreover, we’re always touching something with our hands (sometimes dirty things covered in bacteria) and because of that we have to wash them frequently. That dehydrates the skin on the hands and makes it rough. Because of this it’s essential to take special care of our hands.
This makes the skin on the hands more susceptible to the signs of ageing. In addition you must know that there is very little fat on the back of the hands, therefore when the collagen and the elastin fibers begin to break down they make a noticeable effect.
