Don't let your mitts look older than your mug

It's long been said if you can't tell a woman's age by her face, look at her hands -- they're a dead giveaway.

And it shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, you're probably willing to apply 10 different serums and visit the dermatologist on the regular to keep your face looking as young as possible, but what about your hands? They're lucky if they get a little lotion once and a while.

Even though no one wants wrinkly, crepe-y, speckled hands, most people don't take many preventative steps to avoid hand aging. "Hands are our fastest aging body part," says Elle Sirot, a top hand model and creator of Sirot Skincare. "They are constantly exposed to the elements in all seasons, and the hands are our full time tools fulfilling every action that we do throughout the day. All of that is hard enough, but when you add in the biggest culprit of aging hands -- the constant wear and tear from washing our hands dozens of times each day -- you can see why many women have 'hand horror.'"

To avoid (or start to reverse) "hand horror," Sirot highly recommends wearing gloves when you do household cleaning -- especially washing dishes -- and avoiding drying hand sanitizers. Aside from that, it's all about treating your hands like your face. Spend a minute or two on a basic skin care routine, and apply SPF during the day.

Fortunately, there are plenty of new hand treatment products to help you do just that.

Two-in-One Hand Treatment
Just like your face, your hands deserve both an anti-aging serum and a cream. Hand MD Restorative Duo, $34.99, contains both in one bottle. Apply a pump of the antioxidant serum to brighten skin and fight aging free-radicals, and follow it up with a pump of the cream to lock in moisture all day.

Day and Night Duo
With the Sirot Daytime and Nighttime Hand Cream Duo, $44, you get an SPF for day and a restorative treatment for night. The formulas are rich and luxurious yet sink in fast and leave hands feeling refreshed and hydrated.

Your Hands Need Probiotics, Too
Tula Hand and Nail Therapy, $22, is a silky hand cream packed with 18-percent shea butter to moisturize hands and cuticles. It also contains licorice extract to brighten dark spots and vitamin C to fight free radicals. Plus, it has Tula's signature probiotic complex, which helps balance the natural bacteria to keep your skin looking its best.

A Mask for Your Hands
Masking isn't just a trend in face care -- case in point the Karuna Age-Defying Hand Mask, $32. These plastic gloves are filled with a supermoisturizing, anti-aging serum that makes your hands look and feel like baby skin in a matter of 20 minutes.
