✔ The hands are constantly exposed to the sun which is the main external contributor that causes ageing
✔ The hands are an easy area to neglect – despite the fact that we use them every day, we often don’t look after them as we should!
✔ There are a variety of treatments that are available to treat ageing hands and the best treatment for you will be determined by your concern
We use our hands on a daily basis to communicate, express ourselves and for general day to day tasks. Let’s be honest here, do you always remember to put SPF on the back of your hands, do you always remember to put your washing up gloves on before cleaning and do you always give your hands the same care and attention that you give to your face?
(I already know the answers to those questions, because I’m no angel either!!)
So, it’s no wonder that our hands are susceptible to early signs on ageing. They are constantly exposed and can be affected by fine lines, wrinkles, thinning of the skin, volume loss and hyperpigmentation. It’s easy to conceal imperfections and wear makeup on our face but it’s not quite so easy to mask the areas of concern on the hands.
But rest assured, there are many treatments that can effectively treat ageing hands and leave the appearance of your hands looking youthful and refreshed again!
What Causes The Hands To Age?
The hands are exposed constantly to UV which, as we know, is the biggest external factor that causes ageing. In fact, it’s estimated that around 80% of skin ageing is due to UV rays. Genetics also have a big part to play in when and how the hands will age.
The loss of oestrogen during the menopause can also accelerate both the loss of collagen and therefore the appearance of ageing in the hands. Most women begin to notice the effects of ageing on their hands around their 40s, but in some cases, signs of ageing can occur much earlier.

Treatment For Ageing Hands
