6 Tips for Smoothening Hand Wrinkles - Beauty Tips

How To Remove Wrinkles On Fingers, Knuckles, Hands

As women approach 40, the effects of the sun, a diminishing supply of estrogen, diet, and nutrition cause skin to dry and wrinkle. Crow's feet, smile lines, and forehead furrows slowly begin to appear on their faces. Unfortunately, the wrinkling doesn't stop at the face. Their hands begin to dry and wrinkle too. While chemical peels, Dermabrasion, Botox or plastic surgery may be the answer to turning back the clock on facial lines, how do mature women smoothen the wrinkles on their hands? Here are 6 tips for smoother, younger hands.

How To Remove Wrinkles On Fingers, Knuckles, Hands

1. Moisturize and replenish your hands after washing 

The typical woman washes her hands several times a day. When we are not washing our hands, we may use hand sanitizers. Both soap and sanitizers can have drying effects on the hands that can lead to wrinkles. Next time you clean your hands, think of it as a two-step process: wash, then moisturize.

2. Keep pocket-size hand lotions in your purse 

Pocket-size hand lotions and cremes come in handy when you are away from home and need dry hand relief. You can purchase trial or travel-size lotions at the drugstore or collect them from your hotel room during your next vacation.

3. Use facial scrubs 

Next time you break out your favorite facial scrub use it on your hands, rather than your face. Facial scrubs used to exfoliate dead skin cells from your face, are also excellent remedies for smoothening hands. They can be purchased inexpensively at the drugstore or made at home using kitchen ingredients like baking soda, rolled oats, or sugar.

4. Eat some carrots 

Foods rich in beta-carotene, like carrots, are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the skin from the harmful drying effects of the sun and help minimize wrinkles.

5. Drink water 

Water is a magical beauty elixir! It is nature's moisturizer and truly the fountain of youth. Staying hydrated improves the overall condition of the skin all over your body.

6. Wear gloves

 Before you wash your next sink of dishes, scrub your bathroom, or tend to your gardening duties, put on a pair of gloves. Chemicals used in dishwashing liquids and household cleaners can damage the skin on your hands. Similarly, exposing your hands to the elements of sun, wind, and water while performing outdoor activities like gardening, can result in dry skin. Wearing gloves while performing these activities not only protects the hands, it can help them lock in their natural moisture.
