Hands: How To Make Them Younger-looking In Your Lunch Break
23 Mar 2018
Most of us take good care of our face but are you giving your hands the same attention? If not, they’re one of the most noticeable places that can bear the signs of premature ageing. Signs which include the thinning of your skin and pigmentation.
Your first line of defence is to protect them from the sun so it’s important to invest in a good hand cream. We like silky-textured yet fast-absorbing Dr Duve Lifting and Firming Hand & Decollete cream. It contains collagen-activating growth factors and hydrating hyaluronic acid. It is best before applying a sunscreen with a high protection factor to the back of your hands.
Heliocare Gel SPF 50 is a nice pick as it contains free-radical fighting antioxidants. It feels incredibly light, as though you’ve got nothing on!
Another winner for happy hands? Neostrata Sheer Physical Protection SPF50. Again, it’s infused with antioxidants like green tea and ultra-gentle polyhydroxy acids that can exfoliate to reveal brighter-looking skin. Most noteworthy is that it won’t make it more sensitive to the sun.
Fight the hands of time
If the damage is already done and you’re wanting to reverse it, consider 3D Hand Rejuvenation offered at selected Skin Renewal branches around the country. An effective and easy ‘lunchtime’ non-surgical treatment. It involves three clinical applications, however, you can get back to work the very next day.
The first step towards to younger looking hands is Mesotherapy . A topical anaesthetic is applied before micro-injections are delivered to the middle layer of your skin. Each of these tiny ‘medicine droplets’ contains a mix of skin rejuvenating growth factors, moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid and collagen-stimulating peptides. You’ll see an improvement straight away. However, the real results kick in a few months down the line when your newly stimulated collagen supply begins to multiply.
The second step involves injecting a dermal filler, namely Juvederm Hydrate . This is injected into the areas where your skin is looking dehydrated and crepey. Again, this contains hyaluronic acid that binds your body’s own moisture content and can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water. When it comes to hydration, hyaluronic acid really is a magic bullet.
Last but not least, a volumising dermal filler is used to plump up skin in any areas that are looking thin or bony. Again, the resulting improvement is instant and younger-looking hands will be yours for the taking!
