    I burn easily and always put sunblock on my hands (like every day. It’s part of my morning routine). But even so, no one looking at just my hands is going to think I’m 17. Sunblock only accomplishes so much. I suppose I could wear swim gloves to cover the one part of my body that just can’t be surgically de-aged, but I’ve chosen the path of not GAF how old randos think I am.

    • Pork Chops and Applesauce says:

      You can actually get Fraxel laser treatments on your hands. Apparently the results can be quite good.

      • bettyrose says:

        Thanks! I’ll look into that for the future. To be honest, I’m fine with how my hands look. I do try to protect them from UV rays, but I’m not KK level ridiculous with trying to hide my true age. I’m not a model or trophy wife, and being young forever doesn’t matter to me. But I do wanna be rockin’ it into my 80s, so I’m not opposed to a little tweak someday when money means less to me than time.

      As someone susceptible to skin cancer I would buy these all day long if they had spf in them, were washable and I could maintain dexterity, including in the phone. I already have fingerless ones (not skims brand)

      @bettyrose What sunscreen do you prefer for your hands? The ones I’ve tried just feel a little too icky after I’ve applied them. I’m ok with it on my face under makeup, but I want my hands to feel like there’s not a film on them.

      • bettyrose says:

        @amilu –
        I like Pacifica Sheer Face Serum SPH 55 for my face & hands. I don’t spend a lot of time in the sun, honestly, so this is for regular street wear.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I’ve been covering up & slathering on the sunblock for decades now (a bit late & only after my first skin cancer diagnosis). The concept of swim gloves is fine, I guess, if they were SPF fabric, but these are not. They’re just nylon & spandex like any swimsuit. Still, that would be helpful, I guess. These only come in the one size & length, and if you actually swim, you know you need something that’s not loose on you to start with because it will loosen up even more in the water. Plus, opera length gloves wouldn’t do it for me. I like a long-sleeve suit sometimes, so a short glove would be preferred. And FYI to anyone interested, the Skims gloves are waitlisted already.
      @amilu: I like Supergoop. It’s actually not goopy & doesn’t leave a white residue everywhere.

    I cannot even think about the inhuman deplorables in this state right now that are currently in the process of making almost all abortion illegal here after what that poor CHILD had to go through. I just look at my young daughters and cry for the rights that they won’t have that I had. And after reading about the journalists that we searched and told their clothing was inappropriate to attend an effing execution I feel we are going backwards at lightening speed and it won’t get any better in my lifetime. I hate this place so much.

      I remember a few years ago when there was a similar case involving a 12 year old in Central America that we were all up in arms about. Now look, we’re that country. The U.S. is not a democracy, not a modern society, and not a free country. That said, there was a recent NPR story about a woman in Texas (married and pregnant by choice) whose fetus had become non viable. Her doctors were unable to provide any medical care that would border on abortion, even if it meant saving her life. The fetus couldn’t be saved either way, so the issue was pretty absurd, but the state wanted her to carry a non viable fetus to term, at great risk to the physical and mental health of the woman. The story of the 10 year old rape survivor is horrifying, but still somewhat rare. The story of an adult woman being denied medical care is the one that’s going to happen all the time. And it will happen to women irrespective of their political and religious leanings. Devout women, fervently anti-abortion women, Trump loving women, all these demographics will experience health emergencies despite being married and pregnant by choice. It’s not just us sluts that have to worry. (I’m nearly 50 in a 20 year monogamous relationship, but I use the term “slut” to indicate that I’m all about sex for pleasure and not procreation).

      • Erin says:

        Exactly! It will start happening to all of those middle and upper class maga women and I honestly wonder what they are going to do. The men obviously couldn’t give two shits and not all the women want to be martyrs by dying from trying to “bring new life into the world”. I guess they’ve made their bed but in the process they’ve dragged all of us down with them and at this point it’s too late.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Even women who aren’t pregnant are suffering horrific denials of care. Six states have banned the use of methotrexate by women who take it for cancer, Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Crohn’s. I am alive because of methotrexate.

    Those look like SURGICAL/LATEX gloves from a distance! Always somethin’ about this woman!😫

  4. Juniper says:

    I have UV sleeves for when I have to walk across campus and I don’t have enough time to put on sunscreen. Mine don’t have hand covers, but you can buy them with them. They’re pretty convenient, TBH.

  5. Veronica S. says:

    Girl looks like an MIB agent about to proceed with an alien rectal exam lol.

  6. nina says:

    Diving gloves serve the same purpose and are much cheaper than SKIMS and probably stronger and better quality.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s what I was thinking, the product already exists in a better form & at a lower cost.

  7. Eurydice says:

    First of all – RIP to the legendary Nichelle Nichols. She inspired me to think big.

    Lol at the top photo of KK – like she’s dressed for a black-tie toilet cleaning gala. As for the rest, not sure why it’s better to expose your ass than your hands, but whatever.

    • Both Sides Now says:

      I was so saddened to hear of Nichelles passing. She was a superstar and used her power for good! NASA was wise to hire her to encourage more cadets to apply to NASA. She was such a beautiful woman as well!! As a boomer, I loved watching Nichelle, Leonard and George, as they were my favorites!!! I wasn’t much of a fan of Shatner as I hated his acting. But loved Nichelle and my gawd, she was hot too!!! I loved her costumes too!!

    • Stacey Dresden says:

      Nichelle Nichols, such a beauty and pioneer!!!!

  8. Asking for a Friend says:

    I’m a melanated sun lover and I would 100 wear those gloves! I’ve seen enough leather backs at the beach to be forewarned. Plus I don’t care about people think I look weird as long as my skin is healthy.

  9. dlc says:

    Jennifer Lawrence’s sack dress is too tight thru the breasts, right? I think the fit is meant to be looser and thats why it looks odd.

  10. ninjycat says:

    Swim gloves save your manicure. I have used them for years in the local pool for water classes. Of course, SKims. look better…:)

    I live in a climate my skin wasn’t evolved to handle, and you can tell by looking at it. I struggle with finding nice-feeling, nice-looking, cover-all swimsuits but it’s hard to find, so instead I do layers and reapplications of messy sunblock. I could see how my dermatologist would wear something like this but to me they look uncomfortable.
    Oh, how I wish I had the funds to invest in a company that created some good anti-UV full-cover swim wear.
