People build their first impressions of us based on our face so it makes sense that we take care of it well. But there’s another part of the body that is exposed just as often, yet doesn’t the receive TLC we afford to our faces: our hands.
There’s a common saying that our hands give away our age. Signs of aging can be even more dramatic on the hands than on the face--age spots, dullness, thinning skin due to sun exposure from driving and constant exposure to hand washing and potentially harsh soaps. Think of all the time you’ve spent with your hands on the wheel in the afternoon, exposed to the sun without any protection.
That’s why, no matter what your age, we recommend wearing SPF on the hands. This will help prevent harmful UVA and UVB sun damage, which we all know plays a primary role in visible aging. It’s easy to forget about the hands, but there are now multitasking hand creams that combine super moisturizing ingredients with SPF, like our LIGHT BEAM, which includes a mushroom extract targeted to help brighten visible spots and pigmentation.
