It’s never too late to start an anti-ageing routine for your hands. The first step is to protect it from external damage, so regularly apply an SPF product to your hands.
Repeated contact with water and certain products is also a skin stressor. Our hands are frequently plunged into water, which strips lipids from the skin and damages our skin’s barrier function. Harsh soaps will further disrupt the skin’s pH. All of this leads to dry, rough hands and often triggers a flare-up in inflammatory skin conditions, so make sure you don rubber gloves or use skin-friendly products whenever possible.
If you’ve already noticed ageing changes, however, certain treatments are safe to use on the thin, delicate skin on the hands.
