We spend tons of time perfecting our redhead skincare routines and finding the perfect products, but most of us don’t give a second thought to the care of our hands. Hand care is a vital part of skincare, especially if you want to reduce signs of aging. Since we know redheads usually have thinner skin (also known as couperose skin), this goes for your hands too.
Your hands probably give away your age more than any other body part. That’s why it’s important to think about what you’re putting on your hands. Here’s everything you need to know about the importance of hand care for redheads:
Apply and reapply SPF
Just like the rest of our bodies, our hands can get sun damage and sunspots. It’s important to spread your SPF to your hands as well and reapply every 1-2 hours or after every wash. This will ensure hands don’t get burnt or damaged by the sun.
Spread your facial care out
A great way to keep hands looking youthful and soft is to use a little of your facial care on them. After you use your hands to apply a serum, lotion, or oil, spread it around on your hands, especially the backs of your hands.
Perform cuticle care
Healthy, maintained cuticles not only look better but they feel better. It will help prevent hangnails, ripping, and bleeding on the fingers.
Hydrate and nourish
Frequent hand washing and the use of sanitizer can leave your hands dry and itchy. Make sure you hydrate them regularly and keep them nourished so the skin stays nice and soft.
Protect your hands
Our hands are tough and can take a lot, but that doesn’t mean they should. To keep your hands looking good, wear gloves while gardening, doing dishes, or cleaning.
Rock it like a Redhead!
