WE USE OUR HANDS EVERY DAY AND EXPERTS SAY THAT THEY SHOW THE FIRST SIGNS OF AGING.
Why is it so? Because the skin on the hands is very thin and sensitive. Fortunately, with a little effort, you can restore your youthful hands.
The back of the hand has very little fat and, therefore, when the fibers of collagen and elastin begin to break, the effect becomes more noticeable. Constantly washing and exposure to various chemicals can have a great impact on them, so it is not surprising that they require extra care.
Experts say that this powerful food helps to restore elasticity. It’s very simple – take the egg whites and mix them with one tablespoon of honey. Then grease the hands with this mixture and let them dry. Wash with soap and water.
Potatoes can make your hands smooth again. Boil a few medium-sized potatoes and mash them using fork. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, honey and milk and put this mixture in the fridge. Apply the mixture 2-3 times a week and let it stay on your hands for about 15 minutes. Wash with soap and water.
Rosehip oil will help you return the elasticity and strength of your hands, and this oil is also very nutritious. Massage your hands every day with this oil and relax them.
Lemon and sugar.
Squeeze half a lemon and mix it with 2 tablespoons of sugar and rub this mixture on your hands to improve the microcirculation. Wash with soap and cold water.
Soak the hands in almond oil and then in cold water for about 5 minutes and then apply greasy cream. Put on cotton gloves on your hands and leave them overnight. In the morning your hands will be fully hydrated.
You should apply some Vaseline on your hands, put on cotton gloves and leave them overnight.
Stop biting your nails.
This affects the skin on your palms, and also slows down the nail growth which makes your hands look even older.
Avoid using very hot water.
Avoid exposing your hands to very hot water since this can dehydrate them. Instead, use lukewarm or cold water.
Protect your hands from the cold weather
Always wear gloves when it’s cold outside, because they are the most vulnerable then.
Zimbawe’s doctor goes missing after masterminding strike
Fearless Zimbabwe’s minister of health has called on the government to address insecurity lapses that has lead to the disappearance Peter Magombeyi, the head of a doctor’s union, who disappeared on Saturday.
Fears are rising over the fate of Zimbabwe medical doctor Dr Peter Magombeyi after he sent a message to say he had been abducted in that country by unknown persons – apparently for demanding a “living wage”.
An AFP report earlier on Sunday quoted the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctor’s Association (ZHDA) as saying Magombeyi had not been heard from since he sent a WhatsApp message on Saturday night saying he had been “kidnapped by three men”.
Zimbabwe doctors, who earn a miserly equivalent of about R3 000 are on strike to press for better wages, equipment and medicines in state hospitals.
The ZHDA has reportedly accused state security forces of abducting the doctor because of his role in organising work stoppages.
This week some doctors said the death of deposed Robert Mugabe, 95, in a Singapore hospital on 6 September was an indication of how bad health services in Zimbabwe
“Dr Magombeyi’s crime is only to ask for a living wage for his profession. This is a reflection of the troubles born out of refusal to implement Political Reforms.”
The Zimbabwe government led by Emmerson Mnangagwa has not publicly commented on the doctor’s disappearance
Turkey: Group calls for immediate action against Femicide
Emine Dirican, a beautician from Istanbul, tried to be a good wife. But her husband hated that she worked, that she socialized, even that she wanted to leave the house sometimes without him.
She tried to reason with him. He lashed out.
“One time, he tied me — my hands, my legs from the back, like you do to animals,” recalls Dirican, shuddering. “He beat me with a belt and said, ‘You’re going to listen to me, you’re going to obey whatever I say to you.’ “
She left him and moved in with her parents. In January, he showed up, full of remorse and insisting he had changed. She let him in.
In her mother’s kitchen, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and pulled out a gun.
“He shot me,” she says. “Then he went back to my mom and he pulled the trigger again, but the gun was stuck. So he hit her head with the back of the gun.”
Her father, who was in another room in the house, heard the gunshots and ran over. Dirican almost bled to death after a bullet ripped through a main artery in one of her legs.
“I was telling my father, ‘Daddy, please, I don’t want to die.’ “
Femicide — killing women because of their gender — is a longstanding issue in Turkey. Nearly 300 women have been killed so far this year, according to the Istanbul-based advocacy group We Will Stop Femicide, which has been tracking gender-related deaths since Turkish authorities stopped doing so in 2009.
