Hand cream is an easy way to minimize the appearance of hand wrinkles. Gently, rubbing hand cream into the skin plumps up the tissue and hands are instantly hydrated. Skin will appear softer and smoother. If your skin is slightly damp prior to application you will retain even more moisture.
Because hands easily show age, it is important to use a cream that not only heals dry skin but can fade age spots, minimize wrinkles and provide other anti aging benefits. For this purpose one high quality product is Dermagist Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream. This hand cream includes a number of ingredients such as niacinamide, super sterol liquid, matrixyl and licorice root to give anti aging benefits.
I like to combine the anti aging Dermagist Hand Cream with a basic hand cream I use the Dermagist at night allowing the anti aging properties to go to work and the general hand cream during the daytime. If I am going out I will combine the everyday hand cream with a sunscreen or use a sunscreen/moisturizer combo.
Remember, it is key to use sunscreen if you are going outdoors on the hands to help prevent new pigmentation, wrinkling etc. from forming.
If you have very dry hands you will want to use a deep moisturizing product like Dermajuv. Avoid ingredients that can be drying like fragrance.
If you want to try intensive moisturizing on cracked, uncomfortable skin or you just want to treat yourself to silky soft hands, you may want to try heat moisturizing. Slather a thick rich moisturizer like Dairy Association Bag Balm (1 oz) 1 oz balm all over your hands. Cover with clear plastic baggies and tuck your hands into a pair of Electric Mittens The warmth will help the moisturizer penetrate the skin leaving it soft and smooth.
Using hand cream should be part of your skin care beauty routine and once you get in the habit it will become second nature like washing your face or brushing your teeth.
