People grow old and there’s nothing unusual about it. It’s a normal process we all go through in life and there’s no way to stop it. As we grow old our body starts changing and transforming and the first signs appear on our skin. Areas such as our face, neck and cleavage are the first on impact and we start noticing fine lines around the eyes, enlarged pores and age spots which weren’t there the night before.
However, the hands can also suffer from the inevitable aging process, since we don’t pay as much attention to them. Moreover, we use our hands much more than we use any other body part. We do the dishes, clean, prepare food etc., and all of this leaves a permanent mark, making our hands age even faster. We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be like that, you can keep the youthful and soft look for much longer if you just follow the tips and tricks we’ve prepared for you in this article. Read on and see how you can protect your hands from premature aging.
Firstly, you need to look out for how often you wash your hands and how often they come in contact with germs, bacteria and other external, potentially damaging factors. You may think this has nothing to do with aging but you’re totally wrong.
Exfoliating is not just for your face, you can exfoliate your hands as well. This is extremely helpful because you’ll remove all the dead skin cells and make them glowing and soft once again. The most important thing is that you don’t have to use store-bought exfoliating creams; we have the perfect recipe for a homemade scrub which is even more effective than the commercial ones.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 tbs cinnamon
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- 1 tbs olive oil
Mix all the ingredients and gently massage the mixture onto your hands. Wash your hands with warm water afterwards and dry them off.
