When we hear the word "skincare," our minds naturally turn to our delicate facial skin. After all, nearly every cleanser, moisturizer, serum, and mask on the market has been formulated specifically for the face, neck, and décolletage. But when it comes to aging, your hands are just as prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots as your face.
In fact, your hands are one of the first body parts to show signs of age, says board-certified dermatologist Kally Papantoniou, MD, FAAD. Hormonal changes coupled with frequent handwashing and sun exposure can lead to a loss of skin elasticity and volume on the back of our hands, plus fine lines, wrinkles, and prominent veins.
In other words, your hardworking hands could use a little pampering. Enter hand masks—spa-like gloves designed to moisturize and soothe your delicate hand skin. Shop our favorite hand masks on the internet below.
