Many of us apply a moisturizer after washing our faces, but we don’t necessarily do the same for our hands. We should, darlings! The skin on the back of your hands is thinner than other skin and it has less sebaceous glands, which means it can become dry very quickly. Suddenly it makes so much sense why it is so often said that a woman’s hands show her age quickly. So what are is the best regimen for older women and what are the best hand creams after 50?
I suggest you use hand cream daily, and consider one that offers SPF. For the day, you can use a cream that absorbs quickly, and for the night, you can opt for a richer hand cream and apply it just before bedtime.
