Putting on sunscreen with the back of your hands

Putting sunscreen on your face should be a daily habit to prevent potential UV damage to your skin. But we often forget the back of the hands, which can often lead to an incongruity between the apparent age of the hands and the face. So here’s an idea… next time you put sunscreen on your face, instead of just spreading it over your face with just your fingers, use the back of your hands to wipe it over your cheeks and forehead. This leads to less sunscreen wasted, as well as a reminder to protect the back of your hands.

For those with concerns about pigmentation on the back of the hands, this can be treated effectively with lasers such as the Gemini laser. For more information on hand rejuvenation, click here.
