How To Make Hands Look Slimmer
Make them stronger: Depending on your body weight, you may want to try shedding excess pounds - if you are overweight/obese and lose weight some of it will come off of your hands.

Sometimes the fluid in the ganglion reabsorbs and sometimes it is drained by a doctor. Without a picture I cannot be sure this is what you have. Not usually harmful. If concerned see your MD. ...Read more

In fact, as my father used to say, if you're not getting older, somebody is shoveling dirt on your face. ...Read more
