You've got to hand it to them
A recent Ask us question got me thinking – this member, who shall remain nameless in case his/her hands are modest, wondered if there’s anything that can be done to turn back the hands of time?
Now my mum has always said: “nothing gives away a woman’s age like her hands or her neck”. It’s true; hands can age you so much don’t you think? And while part of me is hoping that genetics rule in my favour (my nanny Dee has the prettiest palms ever), I know that I better whip out these beauties sooner rather than later...
Grown Hand Cream – the scent of this non-greasy formula alone is enough to tempt me to moisturise every second but the gorgeous combo of grape seed, wheatgerm and rose hip oil that work together against free radical damage make this hard to put down.
La Mer The Hand Treatment – okay, okay, I know, it’s a touch on the pricey side but think how often your hands are shielded from the sun, pollution and cold: never. So you owe them. Big time. And what better way to repay than with a silky-smooth crème that contains smart seaweeds to intuitively attract moisture, prevent dehydration and cushion the skin?
Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Kit – everything you could possibly need to restore your mitts to tip-top condition: Citrus & Ginger Root Hand Wash, Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Crème (scrummy) and Lemon Butter Cuticle Crème (di-vine).
APIVITA Hand Scrub and Mask with Olive – this exfoliating, smoothing and softening scrub uses grains from olive stones mixed with organic olive oil to deeply moisturise, leaving hands smooth, soft and supple.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream – the Glosscars ’08 winner delivers long lasting effective relief of up to 17 hours for dry chapped hands, even under the harshest conditions.
So there we have it – happy hands and high fives all round,
Care to share your hand havens?
