Take care of your hands!



We often spend a lot of time (and money) trying to make our faces look their best, but our hands need attention too. Your hands will clearly reflect the care that you have given them. Notice that the back of your hands tend to be softer, thinner and more prone to early wrinkling, whereas your palms are thicker and rougher, especially if you expose them constantly to environmental elements, detergents or harsh agents.

Also, the palms do not have oil glands to provide natural lubrication. By using a hand cream or lotion repeatedly everyday, your hands will feel smoother and the appearance of small dry lines can be minimized. Formulations containing vitamins B5, B3, or E provide an added level of nourishment, and those rich in emollients will soothe, soften and help to seal in moisture. If possible, keep them covered with gloves when dealing with any kind of harsh chemical, doing dishes or working in the garden.
