Old Hands

It doesn’t have to be. I have a red light therapy device that stimulates collagen production and helps skin rejuvenate. It really does plump up the cells, making the skin and feel younger. You can get rid of wrinkles you thought had set in for good. It also helps heal wounds and stimulates repairs to ligaments and cartilage deep under the skin. (No I’m not part of a pyramid scheme and I don’t promote a particular brand. Brand doesn’t matter). I first went for a full body treatment three times a week for my back that has old injuries and deteriorating discs. The treatment was very helpful and reduced my back pain a lot so I ordered a hand held device to see if it would work for skin rejuvenation as touted in articles I’d read. It’s awesome! I use it on my face, neck, upper chest and hands. I’ve been slacking and I haven’t used it in months, but there ARE things you can do to turn back the clock so to speak. Anything you would do for your face, do for your hands. That includes daily sunscreen, reapplied when you wash your hands, and nourishing or wrinkle preventive treatments such as night creams with vitamin e and hyaluronic acid. Apply it to the backs of your hands (and forearms) and wipe it off your palms if you’re concerned about wiping it into your eyes if it’s a concentrated treatment. A lot of people use retinol products for anti-aging treatments. I get a lot of redness from those products and I don’t like it, but maybe you would respond well. Try it! Don’t throw in the towel yet! You’re too young for that! I’m 45 by the way.

Adding, my knuckles look red and scaly above. Not a pic of perfection 😂 but I’d been out in snow and it was sub freezing the day I took that pic. My skin was so dry I couldn’t keep up. We worry about sun damage, but dang, how about WINTER damage!

I have absolutely NO idea if this even does anything, but sometimes I use wrinkle cream on my hands. No one notices your hands like you do, so don’t let it keep you down!

Some of this is unavoidable; skin is going to wrinkle. As far as it’s all downhill from here goes, well, consider the alternative. I use Renova on my face and hands, followed by  59 yo hands, you’re not alone!

I’m 38 and have never noticed how wrinkly my hands were until I got engaged and tried to take a decent ring pic!  That’s when I noticed my hands photograph like a 70 yr old!!  Lol.  Maybe I’ll have to look into that red light therapy mentioned above….

I just want to say that rings on old hands and wrinkly hands in my opinion, are beautiful. To me the lines on the hands have stories to tell. I know that when they sell jewelry, it’s advertised on youthful, smooth hands. It’s something that we are brainwashed to believe is the prime example of beauty, but there are so many other forms that we are not appreciating.

I have had “man hands” all of my life. Now that I’m older, I have wrinkly man hands. 😂 I don’t really care because a beautiful ring takes center stage no matter what your hands look like. 💜

The thing that I do not like is that once you reach your 50s, you have to choose between your face and your ass because weight wise, when one looks good the other doesn’t. 🤨

I feel like wrinkled hands is just another thing for women to worry about. Our bodies aren’t meant to look like they are 25 forever. We aren’t meant to be stagnant. Embrace your wrinkles and don’t let society tell you you’re ugly. We are always beautiful. I’m finally not going to dye the grey out of my hair because capitalist marketing says it’s ugly.

My hands are red, dry, chapped, and wrinkled! I am close to 50 and a nurse so my hands are a mess. I still love to wear rings. I think it’s because it is sparkle that you can see on yourself!! (Unless it is winter and they are covered in gloves!)

Yeah, and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better, too!  Oh well!  I just try to enjoy the body I have, and focus on all the absolutely amazing things it does.  Everyone wrinkles and that’s a fact!

North of 50 that’s all I’ll say. I find if you elevate your hands the veins are less noticible. I also use sun screen when going for a mani and they use the UV dryers. Otherwise hand cream a couple of times a day and cuticle oil.  I should sun screen every day like I do with my face but I’m too lazy.

@kkgrove:  Man! I feel you on this one! I was taking pics of my new band with my e-ring and really thought my hand looked old haha. I am a nurse and I am constantly washing my hands, so that’s not helping.

As someone who has the veiniest hands in history (thanks, genetics!), you have real options: filler or sclerotherapy. I’ve had filler before, and it lasts up to two years. I’m now just going to get them removed.
