Do your hands reveal your true age?

Do your hands reveal your true age?

Indoor heating and drier fall and winter weather can cause dramatic changes in our skin. At the same time, we still have to be cautious of UV exposure. When considering our skin care needs, it is easy to overlook our hands. Drier skin might prompt us to use lotion, but sometimes lotion isn’t enough to fully protect hands. According to Dee Anna Glaser, M.D., FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist, professor and vice chairman in the department of dermatology at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, “Hands often can reveal a person’s true age.” Glaser cautions that as school starts, busy parents who spend a lot of time driving kids around should be aware that ultraviolet A (UVA) rays can pass through car windows and cause sun damage to hands[i]. Wearing gloves and remembering the sunscreen are important while engaging in these activities as well. Not spending time outdoors? Keep some extra hand lotion close by to fend off irritating, dry, flaky skin. I recommend this non greasy lotion specially formatted to smooth, soften, and help defend against winter dryness
