In Good Hands

What do your hands say about you?  Do they give away your age?  As a woman, our hands help us to do amazing things.  They help us to cook meals, care for babies, grow flowers and vegetable, create music and art and comfort those we love.

Despite the amazing things our hands can do, more and more women are concerned about how their hands look. Many believe their hands make them look years older. Aging hands are characterized by thin loose skin, age spots, wrinkles, dryness, veins and prominent joints.  Advertising and the media constantly remind us to take care of our bodies, skin and hair but they often forget about our hands. After the face, hands are the second most visible, tell-tale sign of one’s age.

There are ways to make aging hands look better. Have you heard of a hand lift?  It is a cosmetic procedure that takes fat from one part of the body and injects into hands to make them look fuller and less wrinkled. At a cost of $2000 to $5000, it is not a serious option for most women.  After all, for thousands of dollars, you could have hundreds of manicures!

So what should you do to reduce the signs of aging on your hands? The answers are pretty simple and may be as close as your bathroom.  Let Alpha Skin Care help to show you how.

For thin and crepey skin                                                                                                    Use a retinol cream to improve texture and thicken collagen.  Try Alpha Skin Care Enhanced Wrinkle Repair Cream with Retinol.  Tip: Use a retinol cream at night on your face and rub the extra on the back of your hands.  Both will benefit from this anti-aging ingredient.

For age spots                                                                                                                              Tackle age spots with a skin lightener made with hydroquinone and AHAs to lighten, brighten and even skin tone. Try Alpha Skin Care Dual Action Skin Lightener.  It has both active ingredients. And don’t forget the sunscreen! Sun damage means more age spots and even thinner skin. Use an SPF of at least 15 on the backs of your hands whenever you go out in the sun.  Alpha Skin Care Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen as gentle on your hands as it is on your face.

For wrinkling                                                                                                                                  Use an anti-aging AHA to exfoliate and stimulate collagen production. Alpha Skin Care Essential Renewal Lotion will provide real results.  AHAs will help make your hands softer, smoother and younger looking.

For dryness – Use a good quality AHA to exfoliate dryness and a moisturizer with hyularonic acid to soothe and soften dry skin.  Alpha Skin Care Essential Renewal Lotion and Essential Facial Moisturizer is the perfect combination of products to use on your hands for real results.

So, there you have it. The same anti-aging products you use on your face will help you to reduce the signs of aging on your hands.  For less than the cost of a manicure, your hands can look and feel as young as the rest of you.  Your hands take care of so much. Shouldn’t you take care of your hands?
