My hands have always been wrinkley (sun damage age 16, they were never the same again) but in the last few days the skin is suddenly getting really dry, paper thin, and almost baggy... it looks exactly like tissue paper.

I've been body brushing for the last month, but I thought this would help the skin get tougher? It's working elsewhere on my body...

Help?!

So you have been brushing your hands?

Have you given the skin on your hands extra food, to compensate for all the exfoliation?

Do you mean literally putting food on my hands? Im general I've got a very nutrient rich diet.

Have been brushing for just over a month...

Extra hydration, skin nutrients. Dry brushing your hands needs to be balanced with extra skin food.

there are lots of ways to feed skin after exfoliation. Certainly after dermarolling my hands they drank up a ton of avocado oil before they restabilised to usual moisture levels.

Penzim is a very good enzyme food for dry skin.

I'm very wary of using oils on my skin... had a really bad experience with OCM!

The skin on the rest of my body is okay though...?

just give niacinamide powder and n acetyl glucosamine a try. mix the powders in distilled water, spray on hands. if you need an oil, use emu oil. then let your skin heal itself. that's all i can advise.

4% niacinamide, 2% glucosamine in 4 oz distilled water. spray bottle.

emu oil afterwards.

that's it.

use gentle soaps for cleansing...like dr bronners. but try not to wash frequently.
