Protect your hands

When we go out in the sun we are exposed to the sun’s harmful UV radiation. This radiation is known to cause skin cancer. Furthermore the heat tends to dehydrate your skin.

As mentioned earlier this leads to the formation of wrinkles and spots on the hand. So you need to protect your hands from the sun.

You can use a sunscreen on your hands when you go out in the sun. The skin on the hands is thinner than the skin on the face, so it needs to be protected more than the rest of the body to avoid sun damage. 

Ask your pharmacist or shop online for a good sunscreen. Many are available in the market.

You can also wear a pair of cotton gloves to protect your hands from the harmful UV rays of the sun. These can also be very useful when driving as the hands behind the wheel are often exposed to direct sunlight.
