About Me

Flattering wrap dresses

I love wearing wrap dresses. I think they are really flattering and they can be customised to perfectly fit and drape around your body. I also think they can be worn in a range of situations such as at the office or to a cocktail party depending on how they are accessorised and the type of fabric used on the dress. I can't buy all of the wrap dresses in the world, but I love to search for new options so I have started this blog to talk about all the dress options, like wraps, that you might enjoy. I hope you love what I find and share.

Are Your Hands Giving Away Your Age? Try These Skin Care Tips

Skin care is an all-rounded routine that should involve taking care of the hands and nails as well as the entire body. While most people invest in quality skin care products for their face and body, the hands and nails are often neglected. For this reason, you will find someone with beautiful, young skin but with wrinkled hands and dry nails, especially during the cold season. Incorporate these tips in your skin care regiment to eliminate the signs of aging and get smooth, young, and beautiful hands.

Moisturize the hands

The hands and nails are among the parts of the body that have fewer oil glands and are often exposed to harsh weather. The cold weather is particularly hard on hands, and if proper care is not observed, the hands eventually dry and begin to wrinkle. You can avoid this by ensuring that the hands are always moisturized before stepping out of the house and every time you wash your hands. Investing in a moisturizing lotion with sun protection factor can further protect your hands from the harmful UV rays during the day.

Use retinol hand cream

As one ages, the skin around the hands begins to thin, and since there is very little muscle and fat on the hands, bones and veins become exposed. If you have any wrinkles on your hands, they begin to get pronounced as you age due to skin thinning. Using retinol hand cream can help thicken the skin on the hands and prevent wrinkles and signs of aging. Retinol contains Vitamin A which boosts the growth of cells, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and prevents hyperpigmentation on the skin.

Avoid harsh chemicals

Some ingredients in soaps, washing solutions, nail polish removers, hand sanitizers, and other products that come into contact with the hands can cause drying and accelerate aging. Such include acetone, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrances. When purchasing cosmetic products, beware of such ingredients which are not only harmful to your hands, but also to your face as well. Prolonged use can cause dryness, flaking, or even hyperpigmentation of the skin. Always go for products with natural fragrances, natural oils, and mild ingredients.

Establish a hand care routine

Developing and following a strict hand care routine before going to bed can help your hands and nails to recover from the effects of aging. A simple routine can involve washing your hands, applying thick cream or night-time moisturizer, cuticle treatment, and wearing a pair of gloves. You can skip the gloves if it gets too hot and uncomfortable to you. This routine helps in moisturizing and restoring your skin during the night.

The hands often give away someone's age more than any other part of the body. Observing these simple tips can help in restoring youthful skin on the hands and preventing premature aging due to harsh weather and chemicals. Consult a cosmetics and hygiene expert for more information about anti-ageing treatments.
