10 Essential Steps for Younger Looking Hands-MainPhoto


3. Exfoliate
Christina Ambers, aka the Heidi Klum of hand and foot models, and I have exactly one thing in common: we both exfoliate our hands twice a week at night before bed. “In order to properly absorb moisturizer,” she says, “you have to exfoliate your hands and cuticles. Afterward, I immediately apply cream to fend off ragged cuticles and hangnails.”

These scrubs and tools do the job gently but thoroughly:
Bliss Super Slough Scrub ($36)
Kiehl’s Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub in Grapefruit ($28)
Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Body Wash ($26)
Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($119; what’s good for the face is good for the hands)
Tweezerman Dual Nail Brush ($5)
