While some of us care for our face with an almost religious zeal, our hands are often ignored and neglected, left to chap, crack, suffer and accumulate brown spots. However, the hands are telltale markers of age, and are as vulnerable as the skin on our face.
While lasers, chemical peels and microdermabrasion are the most aggressive way of tackling these issues, at SkinCareLab.com, we offer a selection of creams with key ingredients especially formulated to protect and rejuvenate your hands.
French marine based skin care line, has just launched Perfecting Hand Care
Cream. This fast acting hydrating treatment helps erase age spots with its
formulation of seaweed extracts, as well as pineapple and grapefruits acids
that provide gentle and effective exfoliation to smooth and soften.
From Ole Henriksen there is Hands Forward Renewing Hand Crème, formulated with kojic dipalmitate to lighten brown spots and an SPF 15 for daily sun protection. It is also made with shea butter and sugar extracts to moisturize.
Lastly, for maximum hydration, there is MD Forte’s Hand and Body Cream, which contains a 20% Glycolic acid compound to soften your hands and feet while helping to restore brittle nails.
With the weather getting cold, caring for the hands involves much of the same principles as caring for the face. Our hands need to be exfoliated, treated, moisturized, and protected from the elements. Pamper them!
Valmont Hand Cream: Enriched with DNA, RNA, glycerin and squalene to provide maximum protection from the elements and nourish the skin, leaving the hands soft and supple. $72
