The sun is to blame for almost 80% of the aging of our skin. Therefore, do not forget to always carry a hand cream with a sun protection factor on it , and apply it at least 3-4 times a day.
Wash them with a mild soap
Your hands are in contact with many things throughout the day, so keeping them clean is also essential . To do this, use a special hand soap (the dishwasher is for dishes!) And then apply a hand lotion to them.

When exfoliating your face during your weekly facial routine, also apply a little exfoliant to your hands . This will promote cell recovery and help the cream penetrate more deeply.
Hydrate them before going to sleep
