Yes it is
It is inappropriate and rude to ask someone their age, unless you have a clear purpose such as:
1. When you are a child
2. When you want to drive a vehicle and apply for licenses
3. When you want to get into an R-rated or X-rated film or movie house
4. When you are old enough to go to war
5. When you are old enough to drink
6. When you get access to your inheritance and trust funds
7. When you qualify for senior citizens discounts and become concerned about things like retirement age, and some social security benefits
8. When you reach your centennial age and receive a commendation award from the government.
9. When you are dealing with your medical records.
Yes it is rude to ask someone else’s age especially if your purpose is beyond idle curiosity or speculation about the effects of smoking or dental care, cosmetics surgeries or good genes. Whether you think they are older than they are, or younger than they are – either way can be insulting, condescending – you never know. Better not to go there; if it’s volunteered, great!
But do you know that you can at least identify someone’s age by looking at their hands?
Of all the parts of our body, we sometimes care less with our hands. Admit it.
We give focus more on our face and buying (sometimes hauling) makeup to make us look more presentable, and yes pretty for our selfie. We are also busy searching for those so-called Holy Grail-in-a-bottles hoping that it will help us to slow-down the early signs of aging. Including how we can improve our body and aiming to achieve that well-toned skin and firmed buttocks.
Yes sometimes we do the occasionally hand spa and massage. And the weekly manicure from your favorite nail technician. And even lathering it with your favorite hand creams from your favorite beauty label. And to tell you frankly, sometimes these ways are not enough.
Our hands not only are susceptible to the first signs of aging, but very often age even faster than the face.
Yeah I know and it’s crazy!
It is because the skins on the back of our hands are much thinner than on our face.
Just imagine if you are doing those hard labor (me doing my on laundry and wash my dishes) our hands become more tired and it deserves pampering, a major one!
And when we neglect it, our hand becomes wrinkly, crinkly crepe-like skin texture and noticeable appearance of bulging veins, which also grow larger over time.
Those moisturizer creams might works but if you want something quickly, safe and trusted, I have something to recommend you.
Restylane might be next option for you.
So about last month, I’ve visited Dr. Jennie at Skin 101 Clinic for my scheduled (May 13th) skin booster treatment for my hands. Yeah like a month prior from that, I just had my Restylane Skinbooster treatment on my cheeks. (You may check my previous post here.)
If I feel and look great having a Skinbooster treatment for my face, why not I try it with my hands?
And it is really good taking care of our self. And our hands deserve some TLC.
With Restylane Skinbooster – it improves the skin quality by boosting hydration levels deep inside the subcutaneous tissues, increasing skin smoothness, elasticity and firmness. Is gives full hydration inside our skin that restores and revitalizes it with proven long-lasting and visible results.
This is my hands before the treatment and I’m not going to lie about these. Yeah they are kind-of dry, wrinkly – the aftermath of frequent dishwashing, laundry detergents and laziness.
YES – Laziness makes you ugly. And this is serious.
I got lazy applying some moisturizers and cream for my hands.
Dr. Jennie used one (1) vial of Restylane Skinbooster for both my hands. She said that my hands need minor touched-up so 1 vial is enough. In some patients, they consumed 1-2 vials depends on their needs.
At first, I thought it will irk me because I will see those needles inserting in my skin, but surprisingly I didn’t. After cleansing my hands, Dr. Jennie slowly and patiently injected it. I didn’t feel any pain because it has Lidocaine – a local anesthetic agent.
This procedure doesn’t remove your veins, okay. It gives you that hydration and plumpness thus hiding our veins. Restylane Skinbooster is not injected in my veins, just under my skin as you can see in those photos above.
Aside from the usual tiny bruises caused by injection, nothing serious bump or more bruises or redness at all – nothing!
These are my hands two (2) days after my treatment. I haven’t felt any numbness, and start to look really good!
These are my lovely hands 18-days after my Restylane Skinbooster treatment.
23-days after my treatment.
OMG I’m kinda obsessing with my hands now. They look so healthy and smooth, no wrinkles unlike before, plus I’m feeling confident showing off my hands!
For a non-model like me, my hands look model-like enough for my blog! I’m so happy :D
Restylane Skinbooster costs Php14,000 (approx.) per vial. Each treatment last up to 6 months or more depends on how we take care our hands.
It is also a great help that I use Restylane skincare for my hands (and yes, I will share my review very soon!) I also constantly apply sunscreen lotion to prevent from sun damages.
So now you know another secret how to hide your real age!
