Reduce ageing to hands

Many people say that you can truly tell how old someone is by looking at their hands, rather than their face. Our hands are used all the time and are subject to a lot of hard treatment; they are exposed all the time and often forgotten about in terms of sun protection or moisturising, compared to the face. The skin on the hands becomes thinner over time, often with spots of pigmentation due to sun damage and the underlying veins and bone structure becomes more prominent through the skin. Rejuvenation of the hands is now commonly sought after and includes restoring the quality of the skin, reducing pigmentation, as well as adding back volume to the hand to reduce the skeletal appearance.
