You’ve Gotta Hand it To Me

My hands and my face just don’t match. People are always surprised to learn my age—I thank healthy living and rosehip oil for my who-needs-Botox youthful glow—but I have a feeling that if we lived in a society where there was a lot of hand-kissing or at least hand-shaking upon meeting, they would not be as surprised. Years of living in Florida, and putting SPF everywhere but my hands (oops), are to blame. I was pretty grateful to catch a recent episode of my favorite health talk TV show discussing premature aging of the hands—and this super-easy all-natural recipe that can help zap away those unsightly age spots!

Young Hands DIY Recipe

 

Young Hands DIY Recipe

½ a squeezed lemon or ¼ cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 drops licorice root extract
2 Tbsp. olive oil

(I had everything here in my pantry except licorice root extract, which is good to drop into your tea if your stomach is feeling a little off, or to swish around your mouth for fresher breath—so it was a worthy addition!)

Combine ingredients and apply to the skin on your hands twice a week to reduce the appearance of spots.

Oh, and to keep new ones from appearing, can we all agree that wearing sunscreen everywhere, especially hands, is important?
