What Causes Your Fingers To Wrinkle In Water?
Have you ever noticed how good your hands look before you get in the tub and how old they look when you get out. If you are in your 20’s and above, this is a great way to see into the future. I sometime think “oh so this is what it will be like in my 80’s”. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!! So what causes this wrinkling?
According to scientists our hands and feet are where our epidermis is it’s thickest, the large amount of Keratin cells allow our hands and feet to suck in more water. Dawn can make your nails feel soft, but it’s probably the Keratin in your finger nails that’s doing the work. If you would like to reverse this early wrinkling, wear gloves when you dishes. Replace your latex gloves often as they can harbor bacteria. I love the old fashioned yellow gloves.
