Do your hands give your age away?
We all concentrate on our face and body in the battle to stay looking youthful, but how many of us ensure that our hands mirror the rest of our look?
It's a little known fact that hands give away our age, so instead of letting them deceive us, let's ensure that they stay as young as possible too.
Massage with argan oil
If treated properly, hands can be one of the most beautiful parts of our body.
However, some of the beauty is taken away when our hands become dry and thirsty.
It's no surprise that they suffer when one considers that the average person washes their hands 15 times a day - each time taking out a little bit of moisture and adding a wrinkle or two.
Argan oil should be applied after washing hands, as not only is it packed full of fatty acids that are rich in moisture (healing the broken skin), but it's also full of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E.
After a lifetime of washing, the skin on our hands can be broken down and give away our age.
However, argan oil can rebuild the broken cells.
According to Sally Penford, education manager at the International Dermal Institute, it can "rebuild your barrier lipids".
"Argan oil, which is Moroccan oil that people are using for their hair, is also fantastic for your skin and is great for rebuilding the barrier of your skin overnight," she said.
Massage with sweet almond oil
Almond oil has a whole host of benefits for ageing hands.
Firstly, it can rewind the effects of sun damage, owing to its high vitamin E content.
Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin, as well as helping to decrease the signs of lines and wrinkles.
Secondly, thanks to its light texture, almond oil is easily absorbed into the skin, making it a more beneficial moisturiser than many on the high street.
Because of it is completely natural; it is even perfect for sore hands or those with eczema.
Almond oil also contains the mineral zinc, which is important for healing scars and blemishes - as well as turning back the signs of ageing.
Remember not to leave out your nails when you massage!

- Carrot Oil for Face Thank you for your message. Cold pressed carrot oil protects and preserves the nutrients of the carrots. Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face. Frying grated carrots which involves heat and oil will remove some of those nutrients. Hope this helps.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
