As one of the most renowned medical skin spas in Los Angeles, our focus isn’t just on the services we provide—it’s on helping our clients be their ultimate best. This includes taking care of our client’s hands, which can be one of the biggest telltale signs of age. Our hands are constantly exposed to sun, weather, chemicals and other elements since we need them for everything from driving and sports to gardening and housework. It’s no surprise that they are one of the first areas to get wrinkled or suffer from sun spots.
Since we’re known as the best place for hand rejuvenation treatments in Santa Monica, we want to share our expertise with our clients. Read on for five ways to have younger looking hands.
1. Wash With Gentle Products
When we wash our hands several times throughout the day, our hands quickly get dry and cracked. Find high quality, gentle products to wash your hands with. For best results, use a hand wash with a rich moisturizer such as vitamin E or Shea butter. Stay away from hand sanitizers, which tend to contain many chemicals and are extremely dehydrating.
2. Follow a Full Skin Care Regimen
Treat the hands on your skin with as much care as you would your face. Adopt a full skin care regimen, similar to if not the same as your current facial routine. Use retinol products to boost collagen production, exfoliate gently and apply serums and moisturizers regularly.
3. Wear Sunscreen on Your Hands Every Day
Apply sunscreen to your hands every single day. Your hands are exposed to the sun even more than your face, so apply and re-apply throughout the day.
4. Wear Gloves
Definitely don gloves to do gardening and housework, especially for washing dishes. Even if you wear dishwashing gloves, buy a moisturizing dishwashing soap to be extra safe. If you’re going to be in cold weather, wear winter gloves by all means. If you can come up with an excuse to wear gloves in sunny weather, go for it!
5. Get Hand Rejuvenation Treatment
One of our most popular groups of services is our Hand Rejuvenation treatments. Our skilled staff employ a wide range of techniques, from chemical peels and lasers to fillers and high frequency tightening.
