Our hands are the first to suffer environmental damage and reveal our true age.
Hands: - Our Most Important Tool.
Our hands withstand enormous signs of aging, and can appear as early as the teen years. Hands suffer from moisture loss which encourages bacterial activity and formation of free radicals and weakens skin tonus. Skin appears transparent, rough and coarse.
All you need to prevent damaged, aging hands is an awareness of the problem and 5 minutes for daily hand care.
A good hand cream:
- Is easily absorbed.
- Provides a protective barrier from environmental damage.
- Soothes and repairs damaged, cracked skin.
- Keeps nails healthy.
The pH of the healthy epidermis is mildly acidic (between 5-6) creating a first line of defense against environmental damage, helping to protect skin from irritation and irregularities.
Products which contain hydratants - enhance cell regeneration and maintain skin elasticity. They will help neutralize bacterial activity and maintain the active protective layer.
Daily Hand Care: Penetrates and maintains moisture.
- Before washing dishes and housework - Apply cream and wear gloves.
- After housework - Rinse hands and apply hand cream until fully absorbed.
- To prevent stains/unpleasant odors (onion, fish etc.) - Massage hands with salt. Wash hands with soap and water, rinse and apply a therapeutic hand cream.
- Winter - before going out into the cold - Apply nourishing cream and wear gloves to avoid dryness.
- Summer - Apply a hand cream with sunscreens frequently and repeatedly.
