These days, most people are pretty conscientious about trying to prevent and treat wrinkles on their faces. However, a lot of people forget that there are other places that wrinkles can appear. There’s no reason to go through the trouble of keeping your face looking great if, for instance, you have hand or neck wrinkles.
Everyone wants to stay looking young. Unfortunately, that’s not a small task. It takes time, effort and focus on more than just your face to project an aura of youth. Luckily, there are things you can do to fight the wrinkle problem on more than just your face.
First, you need to understand a bit about skin pigment. As you age, your skin actually can produce more pigment which causes ugly skin splotches. Those can appear anywhere, but they are most annoying perhaps on your face, neck and hands since those are the parts of your body that people see most often.
As far as treating your hands is concerned, you can apply a substance called hydroquinone. Hydroquinone keeps your skin from producing melanin, which colors it. So if you do that, old, pigmented cells will soon slough off. Then new, unpigmented cells will rise to the surface.
Using sunscreen, of course, can also protect your hands from some skin damage. You can also exfoliate your skin with retinols and AHA peels. Hydrating your skin and your body in general will also make your skin healthier. All of that combined will help your hands to be revitalized.
Neck wrinkles however, are another story. Necks don’t really wrinkle so much as they deflate. It’s sort of like letting the air out of a balloon. If you want to keep that balloon inflated, you need to take some different steps.
Neck skin can be sensitive, so it’s important to treat it with care. You can start by treating it with retinoids weekly. Then, slowly, increase the treatments over time. That way, your skin will build up a tolerance for the treatment.
Finding a good anti aging cream to use on the neck such as the one offered by Dermagist is also important. Luckily, there are many of them available. Be sure to find one that is good at moisturizing and is meant for sensitive skin, like the skin on your neck. Ask your doctor to help you find just the right cream for you. That way, you’ll be well on your way to making your neck and hands match the youthful look of your face.
