Have you ever admired someone’s youthful appearance at first glance and then became shocked once you saw the backs of their hands? . Hands never lie. They always reveal our true age. WHY?
“Hands not only are susceptible to the first signs of aging, but very often age even faster than the face,” says Ellen Marmur, MD. That’s because the skin on the back of the hand is much thinner than that on your face.
There is also very little fat on the backs of the hands, so when even a small amount of collagen or elastin fibers begins to break down — which is part of the normal aging process and partly from sun exposure (especially while driving).
