Nothing shows your age faster than your hands…so it pays to take care of themEverything your mother said about wearing rubber gloves to do the washing up was right..but if you didn’t listen then here’s a few tips to help turn the clock back.
Sun Exposure is one of the worst culprits and if you have forgotten to include your hands when applying sunscreen then it’s likely that you’ve got a few brown patches (hyper pigmentation). These won’t simply fade by themselves…they need help, so check out Lumecca, an intense pulsed light treatment which stimulates the regeneration of cells, plus it boosts collagen, all of which helps to even out your skin tone. A course of 3-6 treatments spaced 10 days apart will get best results. From £150 a session.
If your hands are wrinkly and the skin is thin then you can consider the Vampire Lift. It’s exactly the same as the Vampire Facelift beloved of Kim Kardashian, but it works brilliantly for the hands too. A vial of your blood is taken and put into a machine to separate the youth-boosting plasma, which is then injected into your hands, stimulating collagen and improving skin quality. Results last up to 18 months and prices start at £500.
You could also consider a Fat Transfer which is a popular way to rejuvenate the area. Fat is taken from another area of your body, treated in a machine, and then injected into the hands. Results can last up to 5 years. Cost from £2800.
If you have no fat, then dermal fillers can be used. Cost is around £550 and the results will last for about 12 months.
My top tips:
· Wear those rubber gloves!
· Always wear sun protection on your hands…even when driving
·Invest in a good hand cream…I love Nourish’s Kale Anti Ageing Hand Cream..it’s intensely hydrating and smoothing. https://nourishskinrange.com/collections/kale/products/argananti-ageing-hand-cream
