THIS POPULAR NAIL POLISH COLOUR CAN MAKE YOUR HANDS LOOK YOUNGER
WORRIED THAT YOUR HANDS WILL GIVE AWAY YOUR AGE (OR IRREGULAR USE OF SUNSCREEN)? DON’T WORRY, THERE’S A NAIL POLISH COLOUR FOR THAT

Our hands work hard for us every day. But, sadly, they are often neglected when it comes to skincare. This means that they can often give away our age, no matter how much effort we put into our facial routine. The constant washing and sanitizing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has also taken its toll on our paws over the last year. If you feel that your hands are aging, no need to worry about invasive treatment. Why? Because there is a nail polish color that has been proven to take the years off.
If your hands are looking older than you feel, it might be time to pick a new signature shade for your manicures. This is because red, specifically, has the magical ability to make your hands look younger.
There are a couple of reasons for this. While nude hues are the go-to shades for many because of their versatility, the fact that they are muted draws attention to your hands rather than your nails. This is also why a bright, eye-catching red, as opposed to a cool blue, has this effect.
With so many different shades of red on the market, how should you go about finding your age-defying match? Bright tomato reds, or ones that lean towards orange, are your best bet at making your hands look livelier. Blue- or purple-tinged reds can draw attention to your veins – not a good look!
Of course, hands will automatically look younger if they are being well looked after. Give them the occasional scrub, and apply hand cream after each wash. It’s also crucial to apply sunscreen daily to avoid fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
Keep your hands healthy and youthful by applying a nourishing hand cream regularly. We recommend the Terres d’Afrique Resuscitate Hand Balm, R630
