We tend to never think about the skin on our hands until one day when we look down to find that they’ve surpassed our face in the aging process. Further down the line, we notice age spots, loose skin and large veins. While this of course is the natural progression of aging, we can’t help but wish that our highly active facial products somehow had made it onto our hands over the years, or by accident even. Or, that we had the foresight to apply the same amount of SPF to our hands that we did so diligently to our precious face.

When it comes to aging skin, it’s all about prevention. To keep the skin on your hands supple and youthful looking, there are some preventive measures you can take.

Apply Sunscreen
New York dermatologist Adebola Dele-Michael, MD, says that daily application of sunscreen to your hands when you are outside or even in your car will help to greatly reduce the signs of aging. She says to also “incorporate lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet, as this may prevent damage that leads to premature aging on hands and skin.”

Use Topical Antioxidants
If you want to take extra steps, apply topical antioxidants to your hands to protect them from environmental damage.

In-Office Treatments
Finally, If you want to correct damage that’s already been done, Dr. Dele-Michael says that there are various treatments, depending on the condition, that can help.
