4 Antiaging Tips for Hands

facial exercisesAs an antiaging expert, my focus is not just on facial exercises – it’s on helping clients improve their entire package. One of the biggest signs of age is dry, cracked, wrinkled hands. Despite this fact, men and women typically neglect their hands, even though they are constantly exposed to the sun. With all of the washing, housework, gardening and other activities we do, it’s no wonder our hands show our age.

The skin on our hands is extremely thin and delicate to begin with, which means they need serious TLC. As damage from UV rays accumulates over time, it causes unsightly sun spots and a breakdown in collagen. The result is hyper-pigmented, crepey, wrinkly-looking skin.

The good news is, you can undo some of the damage and prevent more from occurring in the future by following a few simple tips.

1. Use gentle hand washes.

Most of us wash our hands many times throughout the day, which is extremely drying. Be sure to use the gentlest products possible. Opt for a hand wash infused with vitamin E or another moisturizing ingredient. There are also exfoliating hand washes on the market that offer gentle cleansing while sloughing away dead skin cells. Avoid hand sanitizers completely as they contain alcohol and other dehydrating chemicals.

2. Apply sunscreen daily.

Just like you do with your face, always apply sunscreen to your hands, rain or shine. Your hands are often exposed to the sun even more than your face is. Even when you’re driving, your hands may be getting damage from UV rays through the car window.

3. Wear gloves when you can.

If you’re going outdoors for prolonged periods of time to garden or do other work, wear gloves to protect your hands. If you wash dishes, be sure to wear gloves and use dishwashing soap that is extra gentle.

4. Adopt a full skin care routine for your hands.

Use the same or comparable anti-aging products on your hands that you do your face. I advise my clients to use Retinol on their hands at night to rebuild collagen and serums and moisturizers during the day for hydration. You can also use my High Density Vitamin C Serum for a brightening effect.

5 Tips for Reducing Dark Circles 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Reducing Dark Circles

facial exercisesOne of the most annoying signs of aging are those dark circles under the eyes that never seem to go away. The skin under our eyes is extremely thin and delicate, which is why we need to give that area a little extra care. Here are five tips for reducing the appearance of dark circles and preventing them from getting worse in the future.

1. Sleep on your back.

One of the best things you can do to prevent puffiness and dark circles is to sleep on your back. When you sleep on your side or your stomach, fluid tends to collect under your eyes. Sleeping on your back will also help prevent wrinkles on your face, neck and décolletage.

2. Do the Eye Opener.

One of our favorite facial exercises is the Eye Opener. This Facercise boosts circulation in the area to help address puffiness and dark circles. Do your entire Facercise set twice daily for best results.

3. Eat and drink right.

Reduce the salt in your diet as much as possible, as it causes water retention in the worst places. Excessive sodium intake also hinders circulation, which makes the blood vessels underneath the skin appear darker. Drink lots of plain, cucumber or lemon water. Avoid drinking too much alcohol and eat plenty of antioxidant-rich produce to help combat unsightly dark circles.

4. Quit bad habits.

Don’t smoke, rub your eyes and try to avoid crying. If you have hay fever or allergies, get medication to treat these conditions.

5. Use natural solutions.

Make sure this vulnerable area is properly hydrated with moisturizer and then enhance these efforts with natural solutions. Go old school and place cucumber slices or steeped, cooled down tea bags under your eyes for 10 minutes while you relax. Another great trick is to put spoons in the refrigerator for one hour and then hold them gently over the area until the spoons are warm.
