When we talk about caring for our skin, we’re usually referring to the skin on our face—but your hands shouldn’t be neglected.
The delicate skin on our hands is often left uncared for and unprotected, though it is as exposed to our environment as often as our face is. This cumulative exposure to the sun, combined with the natural loss of collagen and elastin over time, leads to changes in our hands that begin to reveal our age.
As a result of repeated exposure to environmental factors, the skin on our hands becomes thin, dehydrated, damaged, and wrinkled.
We begin to notice more prominent blood vessels, and a loss of volume which accentuates bones and tendons. It’s important to protect your hands from further damage by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen. In the meantime, existing damage and volume loss can be effectively treated at Skin Science Dermatology following a thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, Dermatologist, to determine the treatment best suited to your unique goals.
