How To Protect Your Hands From Sun Damage

Your Hands will be forever in your favor

We all know that the sun is great, but all of that sun exposure comes at a cost. You may love lookin’ bronzed and beautiful, but without proper protection you will end up with wrinkles, sun spots, sagging skin, and maybe even skin cancer!

You’ve heard me say it a million times, and I’m sure you’ve read it a million times more – ALWAYS put sunscreen on your face. Check this blog post for why.

BUT… While you’re taking care of your face, neck, and décolletage… you’re forgetting about one important thing- your hands.

the backs of your hands.

Plastic Surgery gives women the ability to take tens of years off their face, but you can always really tell how old a woman is by her hands.

The skin on our hands is actually pretty thin, similar to that on our face. And when you think about it, your hands are always in the front line of battle. Whenever you’re outside, driving, walking.. those hands have seen the light of day- every day of your life.

So of course we say, oh! Just put sunscreen on them– religiously because you’re going to wash your hands and inevitably wash off the sunscreen. I’ve tried this.. and I’ll tell you right now I do not have the willpower to constantly think about/obsess over my hands. It’s just not gonna happen. I’ll either forget about it entirely, or only do it once.

But may I please have the honor of introducing you to my most ingenious discovery yet–

SPF HAND GLOVES.

These things are the BOMB. Not only do they provide adequate sun protection, but they are fingerless, have grip on the bottom, and they can never get “washed off”! Plus I kinda feel like a badass while wearing them- driving gloves? very cool.

These ones are probably designed for those who participate in outdoor activities; biking, kayaking, etc. But your girl is using them for driving. Being in Florida where it’s sunny all the time, my hands are always getting some sun on them.

But you know I’ll also use them for anytime I’m outside for an extended period of time!

I’m really excited about these, and for 25 bucks I think they are a really great investment for you to age well.

Remember, the goal is not to avoid aging. Because that’s impossible. It’s simply to have the knowledge of how to age wisely.
