While we are religiously following a CTM routine to keep our skin healthy and get regular hair treatments to retain its shine, we often forget other parts of our body – such as hands. They can reveal our age as much as our face and neck. Therefore, taking care of your hands is equally important, especially when they get so much work done. Here are 4 easy ways to get younger looking hands.

Apply sunscreen
 

Apply sunscreen

Slathering sunscreen only on your face and neck because those are the only two things you care about? Think again. Your hands are constantly exposed to the harsh UV rays that can cause age spots and wrinkles. Protect them with a protective layer of sunscreen and reapply every 2 to 3 hours for it to work effectively.

Keep them hydrated
 

Keep them hydrated

Your hands are exposed to chemicals, alkaline water and other factors from the environment that can make them dry, dehydrated and rough. Moisturise hands and body after your bath every morning and keep a moisturiser handy at your work desk in office to nourish your hands each time you wash them.

Wear gloves
 

Wear gloves

Washing dishes and gardening can be tough on your hands and nails. The abrasive dish soaps and mud can strip away the natural oils from your hands making them look parched and rough. Keep these problems at bay by simply wearing gloves before doing these chores and retain the natural moisture.

Use the right nail polish shade
 

Use the right nail polish shade

One of the easiest ways to make your hands look younger is by applying two coats of nail polish. However, instead of following the fad and opting for nudes and glitters opt for fun and peppy colours such as oranges, pinks and reds. They look sophisticated, pretty and fun.
