We use our hands every day and experts say that they show the first signs of aging.
Why is it so? Because the skin on the hands is very thin and sensitive. Fortunately, with a little effort, you can restore your youthful hands.
The back of the hand has very little fat and, therefore, when the fibers of collagen and elastin begin to break, the effect becomes more noticeable. Constantly washing and exposure to various chemicals can have a great impact on them, so it is not surprising that they require extra care.
Experts say that this powerful food helps to restore elasticity. It’s very simple – take the egg whites and mix them with one tablespoon of honey. Then grease the hands with this mixture and let them dry. Wash with soap and water.
Potatoes can make your hands smooth again. Boil a few medium-sized potatoes and mash them using fork. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, honey and milk and put this mixture in the fridge. Apply the mixture 2-3 times a week and let it stay on your hands for about 15 minutes. Wash with soap and water.
Rosehip oil will help you return the elasticity and strength of your hands, and this oil is also very nutritious. Massage your hands every day with this oil and relax them.
Lemon and sugar

Soak the hands in almond oil and then in cold water for about 5 minutes and then apply greasy cream. Put on cotton gloves on your hands and leave them overnight. In the morning your hands will be fully hydrated.
You should apply some Vaseline on your hands, put on cotton gloves and leave them overnight.
Stop biting your nails
This affects the skin on your palms, and also slows down the nail growth which makes your hands look even older.
Avoid using very hot water
Avoid exposing your hands to very hot water since this can dehydrate them. Instead, use lukewarm or cold water.
Protect your hands from the cold weather
Always wear gloves when it’s cold outside, because they are the most vulnerable then.
