Want to know how old someone is? Look at their hands and their neck. Or, at least, that’s how the old saying goes. Your hands are one of the most at-risk areas for early signs of aging. That’s because the skin on your hands is thin, constantly exposed to the sun, and often dry thanks to frequent washing. Luckily, there are three simple steps you can take to keep your hands looking as fresh and spot-free as your face.
Exfoliate To Remove Dark Spots
Dark spots are one of the most common skin issues for hands. Dark spots on the hands are almost always a result of sun exposure. Fading them can take time and patience. To start the process, apply a peel like our TCA Multi-Acid Body Peel
to the backs of your hands once a week. The gentle acids in the formula will help lift the excess melanin deposits that cause dark spots. It will also help speed cell turnover in the area, helping to minimize the crepey look that skin on the hands can begin to develop over time.
Use Serum On Your Hands
Just like the skin around your eyes, the skin on the backs of your hands is very thin and delicate. A serum can work wonders on this kind of skin because it absorbs quickly and delivers active ingredients deeply into the skin where they can have a real impact. If dark spots are your main concern, look for a serum with epidermal growth factors like our EGF Activating Serum
. If crepiness is your concern, choose a serum with peptides like our PSC Peptide Serum. If it seems excessive to apply precious serum to your hands, simply use what is left over on your palms after applying serum to your face.
