Anti Ageing Skincare For Your Hands
We all dedicate a lot of time (and money) to our faces when it comes to fighting the signs of ageing. We meticulously dot eye cream around the orbital bone, carefully massage cleansers across our complexion and thoroughly apply sunscreen everyday. So why is it when it comes to looking after our hands, we're happy to slather on the heavily fragranced gift set we received for Christmas two years ago?Our hands go through a lot everyday, often making them the biggest giveaway of our true age. So we've listed the products you need to give your hands some TLC and help you fight the signs of ageing.
Anti ageing activesRetinol, or Vitamin A, comes in many different formats, derivatives and strengths and is an outstanding active ingredient for the majority of skin types and ageing skin in particular. Retinol helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, increase skin firmness and fade those tell-tale dark spots that appear as a result of photo-ageing.With its incredible ability to improve lines, wrinkles and dark spots, it's no wonder this ingredient is a staple in most anti ageing skincare routines. Now you can extend this wrinkle-busting power to your hands with Jan Marini ReNu Corrective Hand Complex.This patent-pending formula offers a multi-functional approach to anti-ageing by helping to brighten skin tone, decrease the appearance of wrinkles and uneven texture as well as reducing discolouration on the hands. The active ingredients, usually only reserved to facial skincare products, includes retinol, alpha-arbutin, azelaic acid, pomegranate and cucumber extract.
SPF, SPF, SPF!Sunscreen, alongside retinol, is one of the most important products for protecting skin against the damaging effects of UV exposure, which can lead to premature ageing. Although we are religious in our application of SPF on the face, we are neglecting our hands that are constantly exposed to UV rays - unless you're channeling your inner Madonna and wearing fingerless gloves!Medik8 Hand & Nail Cream is deeply hydrating and is enriched with Medik8's signature Hydr8 B5 Rehydration Technology. The lightweight cream absorbs rapidly, leaving no greasy residue behind.Most importantly, the cream is also formulated with SPF 25 to protect against both UV and environmental damage.
Profhilo for the handsProfhilo is an incredibly hydrating injectable form of 'non' crossed linked Hyaluronic Acid. This in-clinic treatment is normally used on the face to give skin a plump, hydrated and fresh look, but it can also be used in other areas including the neck, dÃ©colletage, arms, knees and hands!Profhilo improves skin quality, hydration, brightness and firmness, making it perfect for hands suffering with wrinkles and crÃªpey texture.
Show your manicure some loveOk so this isn't necessarily anti ageing for your hands, but who doesn't love a fresh manicure?
