As we grow older, our skin starts to lose collagen and elastin. This creates a saggy and frail appearance to some of parts of our body, especially our hands. Our hands also tend to come into contact with water and cleaning agents quite often, be it during house cleaning or dish washing. This content can strip lipids from the skin and damage the skin’s function as a barrier.
Loose skin, wrinkles, pigmentation and skeletal looking tendons all make the hands look older. Especially so for ladies, a young and soft-looking pair of hands is associated with gentleness and elegance.
