There are many choices of anti-aging hand and nail cream products on today’s shelves. When looking for a good quality hand cream with anti-aging qualities, where do you start?
Usually, you’d head down to the pharmacy or store, see what’s available, and give one a try. Right? Yet, what if there is a better one? Like many products, trial and error tends to occur.
The problem with selecting one directly from your nearby store, is that stores often carry few products and are mainly marketed and labeled to promote sales. It is best to know what ingredients are best, and choose a high quality healthy product. It’s also good to seek first hand results, and not just marketing verbiage. Of course you are aware of words like best, voted #1, our best seller, these are just words.
Research for yourself by checking reviews online, reading articles, and ask your friends and family what they like to use best. Good first hand, no pun intended, research is most important.
Why Use Anti-aging Formula?
It’s not just a moisturizer it is a thick cream that is most needed on hands and good for nails too. The anti-aging ingredients assist in repairing and preventing skin damage. These creams are not only for use once someone has noticed some aging on hands, it is most beneficial to begin an anti-aging regimen before aging occurs, and a more intense cream if skin damage has already occurred. Daily hand washing, chores, and sun exposure are some causes for the skin on hands to become dry and cracked, or even skin damage and wrinkles. It is better to prevent some of this with a healthy anti-aging formula.

Professional Collagen Producing Hand Creams
While there are many options in anti-aging hand creams, some of the top notch choices are a bit pricey. Still, they have a unique formula to help the skin produce collagen, this formula has growth factors which is produced by plants. Collagen keeps the softness and elasticity of the skin in good condition. A study in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology in 2007 was conducted that proved these ingredients to be effective in reducing wrinkles on hands.
Some products that include this special growth factor formula are Regeniskin, SyCream by Syprex, Neocutis Bio-restorative Skin Cream, and SKinMedica TNS Recovery Complex. As always, it’s best to investigate what products may be right for you.
Why combine hand and nail cream in one?
It is a common routine by nail professionals to place nourishing oil and lotion on the hands and nails for more subtle cuticles and less brittle nails. Choosing a cream that helps both parts simply makes sense. It’s also one less product you need to buy.
Whether you may be beginning a new care routine, or continuing your skin care, it is always best to know you are using a good quality product. With so many available options out there, do your homework and check the labels for important ingredients that produce good results. If you are looking for a higher strength anti-aging hand cream choose one that increases collagen, or one that has a proven track record for improvement in skin texture of the hands. Remember, asking friends and family, even co-workers, and friends at the salon about what creams they like can help when selecting a good product more easily.
