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.
