Many – if not most – of us ladies spend a good amount of time, effort and money to look younger than we actually are. Our faces are well looked after, but more often than not, we don’t give our hands as much attention. Hands are the biggest indicator of age, and deserve just as much TLC, Here’s how to get younger-looking, smoother and wrinkle-free mitts…
For visibly smoother, younger-looking hands, mix a pea-sized amount of liquid foundation with your favourite hand cream. Rub over the top of your hands and into your wrists for even coverage. Age spots, fine lines and uneven skin tone, be gone!
Treat your hands to a luxurious scrub twice a week. This will remove dead skin cells, allow products to absorb better, and keep your hands looking young. Give Sea Siren Cosmetics Sealicious Hand & Foot Scrub a go – its minty-fresh scent leaves hands feeling invigorated!
Beauties, make using hand cream a habit – it’s one of the most effective ways to ensure your hands don’t give away your age. Keep a tube beside your bed and one in your handbag so you’re always prepared. We recommend Natio Wellness Hand Cream SPF 15 as it is blended with sunscreen to protect hands from the sun’s harmful rays.
Just in case you needed an excuse, a hand massage fights against the signs of ageing. Along with feeling ah-mazing, it increases blood flow and works to tighten sagging skin. Treat yourself to a hand massage once a week with the help of a teaspoon of olive oil. Use small circular movements and work your way across your palm and down each finger. Oh, and the benefits increase tenfold if you get your significant other to do the work for you.*

Dark spots (also known as age spots) on the hands basically broadcast your age. If you suffer from these, dab on Spotner Agespot Corrector Pen to reduce their size and appearance. Used twice daily, the treatment helps to accelerate skin cell regeneration and leaves hands smooth, supple and even.
