They’re Called Sun Spots for a Reason
Defend against sun spots with routine application of a zinc-based sunscreen. Don’t just put the SPF on once and forget about it. The best rule to follow is to apply sunscreen before sun exposure and every 2 hours while outside (even when it’s cloudy). It’s best to carry a small tube around in your purse so you’re never without protection. We recommend Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion with SPF to maintain younger looking hands.
Zap ‘Em If You Got ‘Em
If you’re already seeing those pesky spots, don’t fret, there is a laser treatment available. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) has been used for decades to eradicate dark spots, even on the hands. The treatment is quick with minimal discomfort and generally people need 1-2 treatments followed by occasional touch ups to maintain clear skin. We have great success with our IPL device.
Pump Up the Volume
Take a look at the veins in your hands. Are they more prominent now, than they used to be? Just like the face, the tissue of our hands looses volume as we age. If you can easily see your veins in your hands, there are options for you to reduce their appearance. Dermal Fillers are used to refill volume lost in the hands. This can reduce the appearance of large veins and makes the hands look more supple.
When in Doubt, Moisturize
During dry winter months, our skin needs rich moisture and hydration. Because our hands are exposed to so many harmful elements, it is very important to keep your hands moisturized year round with a nourishing hand cream. Epionce Restorative Hand Cream is great to keep handy (see what I did there). It feels great, has a pleasant scent, is botanical-based and will give your hands year-round moisture.
Younger Looking Hands? Mani Up!
As minimal as our nails and cuticles may seem, bacteria and fungus can get trapped under our nails, in our nail beds, and even in between our cuticles. It’s very important to clean under your nails, push your cuticles back, and keep the cuticles trimmed. Make it a point to treat yourself to regular manicures after you’ve gotten your hands in tip top shape!
Follow these tips and tricks to keep them guessing with young-looking skin and hands! High five!
