Anti-Aging prep should begin in your 20’s!

Dr. Leonard Tachmes (Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who recently opened his own practice: Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center & MedSpa) believes that anti-aging tips should be started in your 20’s for preventative measures and to create an anti-aging regimen. “When clients approach their 30’s, they really start to notice early signs of aging from small wrinkles to brown spots on their hands – one of the true age-tellers found on the body. It is never too soon to take measure to protect the skin and to preserve a youthful appearance.”

“With over 17 years of experience, I find that most of my clients are unaware of how sensitive the skin is on their hands – – the most exposed part of their body!”

Dr. Tachmes’ non-treatment anti-aging tips include:

1. Wear driving gloves – throughout the year, as early as your 20s…today’s suntan leads to tomorrow’s fine lines, wrinkles and age spots as cracked skin and small wrinkles are a result of exposure to cold weather elements

2. Wear cleaning gloves – penetrating your hands in extremely hot water containing bleaches, degreasers, soaps and anti-bacterial agents have chemicals that dry out the skin – try applying a nice balm to the hands before you clean in case water seeps inside and…the heat from the water can also be beneficial to penetration of product

3. Exfoliate your hands every week with an enriched, oil-based scrub once a week to allow even penetration of moisturizers

4. Apply SPF 30 (or higher) onto your hands just as you would to your face – everyday

5. Apply tint to car windows – even in the winter months, the sun’s rays still have UV rays that are equally damaging

6. Eliminate the practice of chewing cuticles (can cause loose, torn skin that will eventually crack) and cracking knuckles (can cause enlarged knuckles and increased wrinkles) when under pressure – find a non-aging solution that will not affect your skin’s appearance

Do you worry about your hands? I’m 33, and only thing I do regularly is moisturize. Maybe I need to step it up a bit!

I’m agree with Dr. Leonard that skin on your hand is really sensitive and requires extra care. I always apply sunscreen on my hand whenever I’m going out. Thanks for the article Jocelyn!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve
either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it
is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped
off? I’d really appreciate it.
