What Skin Issues Are Most Common in Hands?
It’s a topic not many folks bring up, but the human hand is one part of the body that regularly undergoes significant stress in terms of the dermis being pulled, retracted, and pushed around. This constant movement and shifting of pressure, particularly on the palms, fingers, and knuckles, can cause an array of cosmetic imperfections. They include wrinkles, reduced volume, fine lines, and sun damage. If you do a lot of rigorous work such as handling manufacturing equipment or operating in construction, scarring and roughness may also occur.
