A Tried-and-True Anti-Aging Regimen for Your Hands
Anti-aging regimens aren’t only for your face. Just like we apply retinoids to fight wrinkles, and SPF to combat hyperpigmentation, we should also be thinking about our hands and nails when it comes to preventative care.
Like our faces, our hands spend a lot of time in the sun causing unwanted damage (hello, steering wheel tanning beds), and soap and water can strip hands of moisture leaving skin and cuticles looking and feeling rough. So whether you want to prevent the signs of aging or reverse them, follow this guide to get your hands in tip-top shape. P.S. you can apply any of these tips to your feet too!
Exfoliate: It’s not just for your face! In the shower or over a sink, exfoliate hands to slough off rough, dry skin. We love our Micro-exfoliating Hand Polish for its vitamin C that brightens skin, and its nourishing cupuacu butter (pronounced: koo-poo-wah-suue), a Brazilian superfruit with 9 essential fatty acids that offers major moisture.
Softening Gloves: Consider this a sheet mask for your hands. Our Advanced Softening Gloves (and socks) are filled with macadamia and coconut oils, as well as vitamin E and shea butter to soften even the driest skin. Slip these on after you exfoliate and enjoy a little R&R.
Hand Serum: We love collagen for its skin plumping qualities, which is why our Protective Hand Serum is one of our faves. It’s chock full of antioxidants and collagen boosting peptides that plumps skin leaving it soft, smooth, and supple. We like to apply this to our hands after a shower, then lock it into our skin with moisturizer.
Moisturize: Speaking of moisturizer, our Protective Hand Nail & Cuticle Cream is our go-to. It’s a protein-rich formula that uses cupuacu and shea butter to provide long-lasting moisture, and peptides give hands that youthful look we all love.
Oil: Cuticle oil! Cuticle oil! Cuticle oil! If we were stranded on an island and we could only bring one thing, it would be this. Add a drop of our Nail & Cuticle Oil to your nails daily to protect, replenish, and strengthen your nails.
And there you have it! Add these steps into your beauty regimen and you’ll be on your way to younger, more supple looking hands in no time.
