ARE YOUR HANDS REVEALING YOUR AGE?
The face and neck aren’t the only places that reveal your real age. Hands are also a tell-tale sign of sun damage and aging thanks to thin skin and regular sun exposure. From “veiny” hands to premature wrinkling, our hands say a lot about us. Similar to other areas of the body regularly exposed to UV rays and thin skin covering minimal fat, hands tend to decrease collagen production at an early age. This means less volume on the backs of the hands and a loss of that youthful plumpness.
AGING AND HANDS
Hands have a lot of similarities to our face and neck. These delicate areas quickly see fat layers and soft tissue deplete. Visible bones, tendons, and veins on the hands can make you look older than you are. No matter how flawless and youthful your face may look, hands can give away your secret—your age. Hands are also regularly exposed to dangerous UV rays, which can leave behind brown spots (or “liver spots”), hyperpigmentation, and other signs of sun damage.
Your hands are one of the first things people notice about you. From that first handshake to handling drinks and utensils at important dinner meetings, many people take extra care to ensure their hands are looking presentable with manicures. However, there’s only so much a regular mani can do. If you really want to care for your hands, hand rejuvenation is necessary.
