Senior Woman Feels Insecure Having "Ugly" Hands But A Nurse Reassures Her Immediately: "Your Hands Tell The Story Of Your Life"

Wrinkly hands are an inevitable part of aging. Some people may feel strongly unconfident with seeing young skin transforming into old, but it's a natural process of our lifespan.

Yet, there is something special when we, as young people, touch our grandparents' wrinkly hands — it gives an exceptional sense and meaning to be around them as they grow older. That's why we want to feel special, too, when we start aging rapidly.

Woman's wrinkled hands

A senior woman feels insecure because of her 'ugly' hands, mostly because of aging spots, which are a typical sign of old and wrinkly skin. One young lady, supposedly a nurse, was painting a new resident's nails, and a beautiful woman came and asked for a clear color. "That's no fun," responded the girl.

When the woman was asked why she didn't want to paint her nails, her response was somewhat heartbreaking:

My hands are ugly, I don't want to draw attention to them.

Then, the young female replied:

Your hands tell the story of your life. They tell the story of love, of care, and adventure. These hands have touched and held things that most people can only wish to one day.

What to do?

Aging naturally is always admiring and important. But if you have wrinkled hands not relating to age, then here are some tips for you to make them less dry and more 'alive':

  • Wear gloves in cold and windy weather, as well as while washing dishes.
  • Wear sunscreen as sun damage can lead to dryness, wrinkles, and age spots.
  • Moisturize and treat the skin.
  • Spa treatment and more.
