Do You Know that Acrylic Nails Can Cause Age Spots?
Are you addicted to Gel and Acrylic nails? Well, I would like to give you a little tip that can save you from age spots and potential skin cancer on the top of your hands. Before you head out to your manicurist, please make it a habit to apply SPF to your hands!
Apply a water proof 30+ SPF or higher to your hands before your visit. The UV lights that help cure the gel and acrylics can damage the skin on the top your hands. The UV lights are just as damaging as the lights used in tanning booths. Plus who wants hands that look old before their time?
Make it a habit to keep a tube of SPF in your car. Apply it to the top your hands before or while driving. And don’t forget to protect the skin on your face and neck while driving! The sun coming through the glass can damage your skin even during cold winter days.
Take my advice… the few seconds that it takes to apply an SPF on your hands, will over the years leave you with youthful looking hands.
As you may or may not realize, people often guess our age by our neck and hands:)
If you happen to have age spots on your hands, you can apply Retin A with Obagi Blender three times per week. Results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks. Looking for a quicker fix, ask us about IPL Photofacial Treatments.
