Along with the skin on your face, the skin on the backs of your hands, and on your décolletage area, can also reveal significant signs of aging. (Bummer…I know.) But unlike our faces, where we slather sunscreen, and all manner of anti-aging treatments, we leave our hands almost entirely out in the cold. Poor things.
The skin on our hands is so thin that is tends to become easily dehydrated, making veins more prominent and tendons more noticeable. But luckily, you don’t need an expensive surgical solution to remedy this common skin-aging problem! A simple, all-natural mixture you can make at home in minutes will have your skin feeling fuller and more youthful in no time.
This treatment contains raw honey, which is an excellent humectant that helps retain moisture in your skin. It also contains yogurt, which has lactic acid that helps exfoliate and brighten your skin. And finally, the star of this treatment is kelp powder, which is loaded with skin-nourishing Omega-3 fatty acids!
Age-Defying Hand Treatment
- 1 Tbsp raw honey
- 1 Tbsp plain yogurt
- 1 tsp kelp powder*
*You can find kelp powder online on Amazon.com, but you can probably also find it at your local health food store. I found a bottle of kelp powder capsules at my nearest Whole Foods, so I just emptied about 5 of the kelp capsules into a small bowl to get 1 tsp of the powder.
Mix the honey, yogurt, and kelp powder together in a small bowl.
Apply the mixture to the back of your hands or your décolletage area, and let it sit for 10 minutes or so.
After the 10 minutes is up, wipe the kelp mixture off gently using a warm washcloth. Repeat one or two times per week to help keep your skin moisturized and to ward off fine lines!
