How To Get Rid Of Hand Wrinkles

The sky and the universe are in constant transition, and so is life. As the time wraps with the past, present and future, age merges in to a haze of lines that either flaunt your age, or offer dazzling simplicity. Some call it lines of wisdom and experience while for others they are wrinkles. Wrinkles are ugly fine lines that appear on the skin, and are an evidence of aging or just plain neglect. Wrinkles are an integral part of ageing, and no one can escape them forever. As we grow old, the skin also ages; the collagen and elastin fibers present within the skin begin to diminish. These tissues provide strength, structure, and elasticity to the skin. Apart from this, as you grow, the natural process of regeneration of tissues and cells slows down. As a result, the cells in the skin take a longer time to repair, and renew themselves. Most of the wrinkles in the hands are caused by the nature of the skin, and the bone structure of the hands, and the rest due to ageing. There are also various external factors responsible for wrinkling, like poor nutrition, lack of adequate intake of water, ultraviolet rays, and lack of exercises. However, there is no need to press the panic button about your hand wrinkles. By changing your lifestyle, right diet, and proper skin care, you can also have a youthful wrinkle free hand. Read the article for few tips on how to get rid of hand wrinkles.

Tips To Get Rid Of Hand Wrinkles 
  • Applying hand cream is an effective method to lighten the pale and faint wrinkles, as they moisturize the skin. To check the sensitivity of the cream, first apply a small amount at the back of the hand, and wait for few hours to see how it reacts with the skin. Rubbing the right hand cream will certainly soften wrinkles, and steadily remove it.
  • Hand peels are an efficient way of removing wrinkles from your hand. When you apply chemical peel on your hands, you will find that your skin dries, and then sheds off. This results in the growth of new skin that is young and supple. If you are still not satisfied then consult a dermatologist to address the problem.
  • During hot weather, apply sun block creams and lotions before venturing out. The ultraviolet rays can cause harm to your skin by speeding up the ageing process. To protect your skin from exposure to sunlight, always apply sunscreen creams and lotions.
  • Water is an essential element of the body, which keeps your health in good condition, and gives a soft skin. Drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated. A well-hydrated skin looks supple, and removes wrinkle problems.   
  • Eat a balanced diet to keep the skin glowing and your health in excellent condition. Healthy and nutritious food helps to protect the natural beauty and delays the ageing process. Drinking lots of water, and maintaining a healthy diet helps in reducing wrinkles. Provide the skin with the nourishment it requires, such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K. This is the best way to allow the skin to maintain itself naturally.
  • For deep wrinkles, you can opt for cosmetic surgery. This surgery is used to change the skin tone, and protect it from ageing. Consult your dermatologist for proper medical assistance. The procedure includes using a sand blaster to minimize the wrinkled skin. The surface of the skin is then polished to give it a young look.
  • Wear gloves when doing chores like washing and cleaning. The chemicals present in detergents and soaps can cause dryness to your skin, which can lead to wrinkles on your hands. Wearing gloves can protect your hands from wetness and harmful effects of chemicals. 
  • Doing exercises regularly helps to tighten your skin, and tone your muscles. You can consider applying moisturizer to your face, neck, and hands before you start your exercise. Keep sipping water in between, to hydrate your skin, and replenish the water lost due to perspiration.
