You should know how to rejuvenate the skin of your hands on your own in order to do without expensive cosmetic procedures. A few simple tricks will help protect the epidermis from premature wilting. In more complex cases, they resort to injections and hardware cosmetology.
A number of factors affect the condition of the human skin. In addition to age-related changes, weather conditions, hormonal disorders, genetic characteristics, daily stress, contact with household chemicals, chlorinated water, etc. have a negative impact.
Negative changes in the epidermis can occur under the influence of the environment. Bright sunlight dries out the skin, provoking the appearance of pigmentation. Low temperatures and wind cause reflex contraction of capillaries and blood vessels, which slows down blood flow. The cells of the epidermis do not receive the necessary amount of nutrients and oxygen from the blood.
Hormonal disruptions can help reduce estrogen production, which negatively affects the condition of the epidermis. Similar disorders are possible during menopause, as well as during pregnancy and lactation.
To prevent the aggressive effects on the skin of household products, you should use protective gloves. This will help keep your hands youthful for a long time.
With age, the skin of the hands can coarsen, lose elasticity, become dry, and become covered with age spots. Therefore, after 35-40 years, prevention of age-related changes should begin.
Anti-aging masks have a strong tightening and moisturizing effect. They are easy to prepare from available products at home. By the degree of impact, they are not inferior to ready-made cosmetic preparations, but in many ways surpass them. For example, in the composition of natural masks there are no dyes, preservatives, stabilizers, which are not always harmless to the body. In addition, natural masks have practically no contraindications.

The process of rejuvenation of the skin of the hands occurs under the influence of IPL devices (intense pulsed light). Using this method, age-related pigmentation, dilated capillaries, and spider veins are effectively removed. The procedure is safe.
To smooth the skin, restore volume and correct contours, injections of fillers are used - liquid fillers that can effectively rejuvenate the epidermis without surgical intervention. A viscous plastic suspension (as an injectable implant) is introduced into the correction zone.
During this procedure, the surface layers of the skin are saturated with hyaluronic acid through injections or using a non-injection technique (under the influence of ultrasound, current, laser, cold, magnetic waves). The introduction of the drug stimulates the production of collagen and the gradual renewal of the epidermis.
In order for the skin of the hands to have a healthy and well-groomed appearance for as long as possible, a number of rules should be observed:
