As you age, you may notice your hands start to have signs of obviously ageing too. To help keep your hands looking youthful, try these Hopewood tips for youthful skin.
Apply 50+ sunscreen. Applying sunscreen to your hands each day can help reduce the amount of damaging sun exposure your hands receive.
Avoid soap. Soap can dry and irritate your skin, particularly if it’s sunburnt, so try to avoid overuse. Likewise, try not to soak in soapy baths for too long.
Drink water. Your skin needs plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out, so restore it by always keeping your fluids up.
Eat vitamin-C-rich foods. Citrus fruits, mustard greens and spinach are essential for the production of collagen. Try to include vitamin C in your diet where possible.
Eat more protein. Protein is key for rebuilding cells. We recommend incorporating more eggs, tofu, beans, and nuts into your diet.
Eat more zinc. Zinc helps generate collagen for skin-tissue repair, and supports the immune system. We recommend eating soybeans, whole-grain pastas, mushrooms, and egg yolks.
Nourish your skin regularly. It’s important to use an organic hand cream before bed each night.
