You’ve heard it all before — use skincare products with SPF. But once you’ve put on the facial moisturizer, BB cream, and foundation, you’re not finished. Your face is an important place to focus on when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun, but what about your hands and neck? If you’re not taking the steps to protect your hands and neck now, your skin will make you look aged after years of sun exposure.
Protect your skin for the future with these helpful tips:
- Avoid too much sun: A little bit of direct sunlight is necessary to help your body produce vitamin D, but too much sun will damage your skin. Cover up, use and reapply sunscreen, and hydrate constantly to keep your skin healthy.
- Address skin texture and contrast irregularities: Photorejuvenation with intense pulsed light (IPL) technology and laser resurfacing, using either ablative or non-ablative lasers, can be used to help reduce sun spots. In addition, your aesthetician may recommend chemical peels to remove the skin’s top layer or microdermabrasion to exfoliate the skin while stimulating collagen growth.
- Add on a filler for your hands: Dermal fillers are an effective procedure for softening the appearance of hands, followed by a chemical peel to give a more youthful appearance.
- Apply topical vitamin A and vitamin C creams: Using topical creams with vitamins A and C can help rejuvenate your skin by fighting the signs of wrinkles on your hands and neck. There are a number of products to choose from, so seek advice from an expert aesthetician who can create a customized treatment plan for your skin.
