15 Easy Ways To Get Rid Of And Prevent Hand Wrinkles
When it comes to your face, your winkle-reversing routine is second nature—the beauty and skin care market is filled with tons of products, like SiO Beauty’s FaceLift medical-grade silicone patches, hydrating sunscreens, plumping serums, and so on.
But when it comes to hand wrinkles (and knuckle and finger wrinkles), it’s a totally different story! And if you don't have a protection plan for the delicate, overworked skin on your hands, it’s much more likely to show unwanted signs of aging.
As promised, the experts at SiO Beauty are here to teach you the secrets for maintaining soft, smooth, and radiant skin on your hands, fingers, and knuckles.
What Causes Hand Wrinkles?
For better or worse, growing older is a natural part of life. But some of the processes we go through tend to leave our bodies looking and feeling older than they should.
Since life pretty much requires using your hands constantly, the delicate skin there tends to crease and lose elasticity, thus resulting in wrinkles. Let’s talk about some specific things that can cause wrinkles on your hands.
Excessive Washing And Dehydration
You likely wash your hands more than any other part of your body. And while keeping your body clean is super important, too much washing can break down your skin’s elasticity, creating looser, more dehydrated skin and leading to hand wrinkles.
Excessive UV exposure causes collagen and elastin fibers in your skin to break down. When these fibers are lost, your skin has little support and becomes more likely to wrinkle.
A Long-Term Smoking Habit
Smoke exposure causes accelerated aging in your skin—especially around your mouth, neck, and hands—by reducing blood flow.
No matter what causes your wrinkles, the best thing you can do to fight them is to provide plenty of moisture for your skin. Luckily, products like the SiO NeckLift patch hydrate, tighten, and tone the skin around your neck, as do the SiO Eye & Smile patches for your mouth.
But what about your hands—how do you replenish the lost hydration there? The experts at SiO Beauty want you to know that there are simple ways to keep your hands looking young and gorgeous.
Easy Ways To Prevent And Reduce Hand Wrinkles
Bye-bye, hand wrinkles! Start implementing these easy treatments for wrinkle-free hands.
1. Lemon Juice And Sugar Scrub
A combination of lemon juice and sugar works brilliantly as a deep exfoliator. The lemon works to remove dark patches, age spots, and dirt that’s visible on your hands. The coarse sugar exfoliates and scrubs away dead skin cells, leaving your hands smoother and softer.
2. Milk Moisture
After using an exfoliator like the sugar scrub, you’re going to want to return essential moisture to your hands. Believe it or not, milk is great for conditioning!
Rich in moisture and full of antioxidants as well as fatty acids, milk helps rid your hands of wrinkles. Soak your hands for 15-20 minutes after using a natural scrub like the lemon/sugar combo.
3. Banana Pulp
Bananas are rich in many vitamins and minerals, making them perfect for fighting hand wrinkles. Apply a crushed banana to your hands and wait until the pulp dries, then rinse it off with warm water. Use banana pulp as a hand mask twice per week for the best results.
4. Pineapple Pulp, Too!
Pineapple pulp is booming with vitamin C. Just like with the bananas, apply and keep the pineapple pulp on your hands for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.
Applying pineapple pulp onto your hands once every other day should result in smoother skin.
5. Olive Oil
Olive oil isn’t just for cooking! Before heading to bed at night, massage olive oil onto your hands. Put cotton gloves on over your oiled hands, and leave the gloves and oil on overnight. Rinse in the morning with warm water.
This treatment should leave your hands softer and more supple.
6. Tomato Juice
Tomato juice is amazing for both the inside and the outside of your body. Soaking your hands in tomato juice is super beneficial because tomatoes are rich in lycopene (an antioxidant that protects your skin).
Likewise, drinking tomato juice delivers a dose of antioxidants and lycopene to your whole body.
7. Rice Paste
Treat hand wrinkles with a rice mask. Prepare the mask by grinding rice powder and combining it with rose water and milk.
Apply the paste to your hands, leaving it until it dries. Once it’s dry, wash the paste off with lukewarm water. Your hands should instantly feel smooth and rejuvenated!
8. Aloe Vera
The aloe vera plant contains malic acid, an elasticity agent that can drastically reduce signs of wrinkles and aging.
Cut a leaf off of the plant and extract the gel by squeezing the leaf. Apply the extracted gel onto your hands and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat the area dry afterward.
9. Watermelon Rind
Enjoy a refreshing watermelon snack, and then use the skin and rind as a wrinkle-fighting wonder! Watermelon is packed with vitamins and minerals that contain natural collagen-enhancing properties.
Create a watermelon wash by squeezing the juice from the watermelon flesh and grating some of the rind. Apply the rind mix to your hands for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
10. Cucumber Slices
Slice up a cucumber and dip each slice in a small amount of honey. Rub the honey-coated cucumber slices over your hands, focusing on the deepest and worst wrinkles. Massage for at least five minutes (the longer, the better!).
11. Carrot Paste
Carrots are high in vitamin A, which is great for preventing and treating wrinkles by speeding up collagen production. Here’s how you can make a carrot paste at home:
- Boil 1-2 peeled carrots in water until soft
- Place into a blender and blend until a paste is formed
- Add a small amount of honey to the paste
- Apply the carrot and honey paste to your hands
- Leave on for about 30 minutes
- Rinse with warm water
12. Coconut Oil
You probably already know that coconut oil is a one-stop-shop miracle for skin and hair with countless benefits. This includes your hands! Warm coconut oil up and apply it to your hands in circular motions for around 10 minutes.
First and foremost, the massage should increase blood flow to your hands, promoting healthy skin and discouraging wrinkles. Additionally, the oil itself will deliver a huge dose of moisture to your hands.
Keeping your body hydrated provides each cell and tissue with what it needs to stay refreshed. Dehydration can cause brittle, weak, and thin skin which, in turn, creates wrinkles.
Aim to drink around 8 glasses of water per day—something we often forget.
14. Sun Protection
It should go without saying, but we can all use a friendly reminder. Apply sunscreen to your hands to avoid sunburn and wrinkles.
15. Rest & Relaxation
Here’s another freebie. By getting enough sleep each and every night, you can provide your body the time it needs to replenish itself and aid in your skin’s natural recovery process.
