The face isn’t the only part of the body that can give away your age. In fact, some areas of the body can start to show the signs of ageing well before it appears on the face, and the hands are a common problem area.
From wrinkles to signs of hyperpigmentation, if your hands are showing their age, there are treatments to help rewind the clock.
What causes ageing hands?
Numerous factors can cause the hands to look older. Firstly, you may not treat the hands like you treat the face when it comes to protecting the skin. It is important to protect the hands with a good anti-ageing cream and SPF, just as you do the face.
Over time, the skin of the hands loses its elasticity and thins. Fat on the back of the hand also diminishes, leading to wrinkles and a translucent appearance. These factors combined leave the hands looking older and gaunter.
Why do my hands look older than my face?
There is less subcutaneous fat in your hands than there is in the face. This means any decline in the amount of fat in the hands is going to be more noticeable on the hands. They are also exposed to more chemicals, as well as to extreme hot and cold temperatures.
Ageing hands are a common issue, but there are treatments which can help produce a more youthful appearance.
