One of the easiest telltale signs of aging is in the hands. Often overlooked when it comes to home maintenance, they can make you look older than you really are –with lines, wrinkles, dark spots and thin, fragile skin.
Finally, someone put on their thinking cap and came up with a solution that will actually help to reverse the signs of aging skin on the hands. As a therapeutical approach, it consists of two medical grade treatment products accompanied by proper sun protection.
For a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your hands, start with ZO’s Oraser Microderm Hand Renewal. Gently scrub away rough, dull skin and keep your hands feeling ultra-rich. With retinol, shea butter and sugar crystals this one not only works to exfoliate, but visibly knocks years off the look of your hands.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
– Sugar Crystals: immediately remove dead surface cells to allow for better penetration and enhanced cellular turnover.
– Retinol: a pure derivative of Vitamin A and the most vital component of any anti-aging skincare program. It is clinically proven to be the most effective anti-aging ingredient to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even skin tone.
– Salicylic Acid: deeply penetrates pores, sloughs dead skin cells, and removes excess dirt
– Shea Butter, Mango Butter, and Safflower Oil: moisturizing agents
HOW TO USE:
Dr. Obagi recommends gently rubbing a generous amount between dry hands for a few seconds so the shea butter can melt. Smooth and massage in circular motion for 30 seconds. Allow product to sit for a minute so hydrators and oils can be absorbed. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water and blot dry. Use once to twice a week as part of the Oraser® Hand Care Program including Oraser® Daily Hand Repair SPF 20 for day and Oraser® Overnight Hand Recovery for night.
Oraser® Overnight Hand Recovery
CONCERNS: Lines, wrinkles, dark spots, loss of firmness and elasticity
You can use it all year around, but it’s especially important during the winter, when the air is cold and dry. This luxurious anti-aging treatment with retinol, powerful anti-oxidants and rich emollients helps reduce pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and improves your hands’ overall texture, tone and colour. What’s fine about fine lines? Nothing.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
– Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles as they bind large quantities of water in the epidermis
– Shea Butter and Meadowfoam Seed Oil: improve skin’s moisturization
– Retinol: a pure derivative of Vitamin A and the most vital component of any anti-aging skincare program. It is clinically proven to be the most effective anti-aging ingredient to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and increase epidermal thickness.
– Vitamin C: anti-oxidant and brightening agent
– Vitamin E: the antioxidant most frequently recommended by dermatologists to fight free radicals and repair damaged skin cells
– Coenzyme Q10: essential for healthy skin. Natural Co-Q10 levels decrease with age, thus these powerful anti-oxidant coenzymes must be supplemented to fight free radicals and reduce aging symptoms.
– Bisabolol: anti-inflammatory agent
HOW TO USE:
Dr. Obagi recommends smoothing into hands, wrists and cuticles before bedtime. Use as part of the Oraser® Anti-Aging Hand Care Program including Oraser® Microderm Hand Renewal for weekly use and Oraser® Daily Hand Repair for day.
