You can have soft hands
that defy age. Did you know that by the time we turn 30, our skin-cell production has decreased by 10 percent? And from there it’s a downhill progression, but you can change the hands of time. Our skin becomes less able to repair itself so that when damage is done to it, it shows longer. The skin on the tops of your hands is some of the thinnest of your whole body – and some of the first to show age. Taking care of your hands has to be an important part of your war on aging. Here are some ways to take care of your hands:
Exposure to harsh household cleaning products is bad for your hands – and you should consider all household cleaning products harsh. Use gloves every time you are using a cleaner of any type – washing dishes, cleaning surfaces, anything.
Use Chemical-Free Products for Soft Hands
Clean, soft hands
are the first line of defense against illness and disease, so it’s important to make sure you cleanse your hands several times a day. Unfortunately, with aging, the skin of your hands gets drier over time whether you are cleansing them or not. Washing your hands with soap dries them out, and hot water is a definite “no-no” because it dries the skin even more. Use a chemical-free hand sanitizer like Eminence Tea Tree & Mint Hand Cleanser
. Clean your hands as often as you like without causing dryness or damage to the delicate skin of your hands.
As collagen and elastin production decrease, wrinkles appear because skin loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles to start to appear. Use a collagen-boosting product that helps to restore elasticity and the healthy, young-looking skin you had.
Exposure to the sun and the environment can lead to rough skin. Once a week, use a chemical-free organic scrub to remove the dead skin cells and follow up with a deep hydration product.
Soft Hands Make You Feel Great and Revitalized
Always use a hand cream with an SPF of at least 25 for soft hands
. Reapply several times a day. (Eminence organic skin care
offers many such products, all chemical-free and full of antioxidants and Eminence’s very own Biocomplex). Eminence Tea Tree & Mint Hand Cleanser
is a great way to clean your hands as often as you like. It’s a hand sanitizer but definitely not like other products that dry your skin. It contains tea tree oil and peppermint, both natural antiseptics, to protect your skin from germs and bacteria. It also has chamomile and vanilla to soothe and calm your skin and improve circulation. Soft hands
feel great and are the very best way to revitalize and protect you and your health.
