Secrets of hand care from the expert

The most frequently contacted, environmentally affected, earliest aging and always neglected part of our body is our hands. Our hands have an important role in our daily, social and business life as they are an exposed and visible area just like our face.

Our hands reveal our personal care and age the most. Therefore, they expect special attention, especially with the cold weather that begins in winter. In hand care, we may need to change our daily habits first. We should make a habit of using gloves when going out in cold weather in winter and sunscreen cream regularly in summer. Considering that we wash our hands on average 5-10 times all day long, you can guess how important it is to do hand cleaning correctly. When washing hands, warm water should be used regardless of the season, avoiding excessively hot and cold water. When choosing a cleanser, you can opt for an antibacterial soap that does not dry the skin. Remember that your hands lose moisture with each wash, avoid washing hands too often. Always dry your hands thoroughly after each wash. If possible, leave a moisturizer next to your sink that you can use comfortably daily. Thus, you will immediately think of applying your cream after each wash. As a moisturizer, opt for products containing olive oil, shea butter, glycerin, urea or vitamin E, oily creams if possible.

If you have to use detergents and chemicals that can irritate the skin during your professional or daily life, always use protective gloves with cotton on the inside and rubber on the outside. Besides its moisturizing content, it will be useful to use barrier creams that form a cover on the upper layer of the skin. Barrier creams will prevent harmful chemicals, such as an invisible, transparent glove, from coming into contact with the skin. Not protecting the skin in a timely manner can cause it to dry out, crack and cause quite uncomfortable skin diseases such as eczema.

The best time to erase the signs of aging that have occurred in our hands over the years is exactly this season, the winter months. The first sign of aging on the hands are brown spots. Genetic predisposition, these spots formed as a result of intense sun exposure for many years can be seen in the form of small spots such as freckles or in the form of a thick dark fluff on the surface. Various treatments such as chemical peeling, cryotherapy (freezing treatment), laser can be used to get rid of them. All these treatments should not be carried out in sunny times, as they will act by peeling on the skin. Therefore, if you are uncomfortable with these spots on your hands, you should not miss the winter season for an important and successful treatment. During the aging process, the skin is thinned on the hands and the adipose tissue under the skin decreases. As a result, the hands appear to have clear veins, thinned skin and shtendered. It is often not possible to fix such an old image with creams. In this case, a full, smooth and youthful appearance can be achieved again by using various fillers such as hyaluronic acid.
