I also want to add that gently massaging a couple drops of pure argan oil on your cuticles and knuckles each night before bed has done wonders for me!

luvingbee :  Your hands do not look 60+! Your ring is so pretty and unique. I get what your saying though, I’m 40 and feel like my hands look older too. I’ve noticed it just depends on the lighting in my pics and honestly my pics look better than how they look when I post on here. They always turn out blurry after I post them and that makes my hands look weird also. But no worries you do not have old looking hands they are nice and your ring compliments you nicely too!

Tell me I’m not the only one who immediately pulled up recent ring pics to see how old my hands look.  Anybody?  No?  Just me?  Ok then….

If ever have leftover from the things for my face, I rub my hands. So if I use a peel, I’ll smear any extra on my hands. When applying product, there are sometimes bits left between my fingers, which I wipe on the backs of my hands. I don’t know how much good it does, but it can’t hurt.

Oh ya!  I’m 55 so my hands look really wrinkly. I just decided I don’t care anymore. My most recent thing is to look at my ring and not my hands!  Lol!

I guessed 42! Just keep the lotion going. And lotion with SPF is important because the back of hands see the sun just as much as our face. My coworker easily looks 10 years younger than she is, she uses oil of olay on her face, neck, decolletage, and hands.

LunaC :  I’ll be 56 in 2 weeks so I feel ya.  I think it was 5 or 6 years ago that I looked at my hands and thought “oh my God!  I’m old”  I do tend to look more at my ring than the wrinkled skin.  It’s like whistling past the graveyard

I’m about to turn 39 and my hands look like they were stolen off an Egyptian mummy. They look like they belong to the crypt keeper. They are objectively the ugliest hands I have ever seen attached to any animal with hands. But, they’re strong, I have a freaking gorgeous ring, and cute nails, so whatever.

luvingbee :  unfourtanately yes. Just don’t worry about it, there is nothing you can do, don’t get a complex over it. Ther is no way a 42 yo man is sitting around caring about how old his hands look. Maybe we could take a lesson in happiness there.

ariesscientist :   The only thing that works for me is to drink a ton of water every day.  Like probably a gallon over the whole day.  If I miss a day or two I can tell in my skin right away, and my face looks older too.  (I’m 52)

Can’t decide which is worse, hands or face., both look pretty old snce I’m 58 lol. Plus I have arthritis that makes my knuckles swell. But I don’t judge age by hands or as they can be misleading. I judge by neck, which as you can see by my photo qdoesnt hide age very well.

Do you hand wash dishes often? If you do, always wear dish gloves. My mom was adamant about that all her life and drilled that into me and my sister. She recently stopped wearing gloves religiously while doing dishes and her hands aged seemingly overnight!
