5 Ways to younger looking hands

Let's face it--no matter how youthful your face may appear your hands and neck can definitely give away your true age. It's no wonder they've come up with cosmetic fat injectors to plump up viejita-looking hands. The hand fillers help volumize and smooth skin, while encouraging the production of collagen leaving hands with a much more youthful appearance. There's even laser resurfacing treatments these days that help reduce the appearance of sunspots. But wait … what about us women who can't actually afford these fancy procedures?

Well luckily for us there are ways you can keep your hands from aging without breaking the bank. All it takes is a few tweaks to your beauty regime. Check out some of my super simple tips below!

Do a hand scrub: Your face and body aren't the only areas that need exfoliating. To help slough away dead skin cells and keep hands smoother, use a hand scrub at least once a week. Try the L'Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub ($22). It's made with sugars and a blend of nourishing oils that leave hands smooth and hydrated in just a minute!

Always moisturize: You should already know by now that moisturizing your hands is key to keeping them youthful. But make sure to ALWAYS apply lotion after washing your hands or doing the dishes. Look for a hand cream that contains sunscreen protection, like Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Hand Cream ($28) to avoid sun spots.

Try an anti-aging hand cream: The best way to keep hands looking young is by caring for them the way you would your face. Look for a hand cream formulated with nourishing ingredients and essential fatty acids that's going to keep skin smooth and even. I like Philosophy Miracle Worker Anti-Aging Hand Neck & Decollete Cream ($46).

Protect hands: Like I mentioned earlier, the more sun exposure your hands get, the quicker they're going to age. UV rays tend to go through car windows, so trying wearing gloves while driving.

Get a manicure: Nothing makes hands look more youthful than a fresh manicure. A bright, bold polish will get the job done!
