Our hands are permanently on show. We use them to perform just about every daily task. It’s therefore surprising, how many women spend huge amounts of money on skincare products for their face and treatments for their hair, yet don’t give a second thought to caring for their hands.
Our hands are one of the first areas on our bodies to show the ravages of time. This is because the skin on our hands is much thinner than that on our face; therefore, it’s even more susceptible to the signs of ageing. There is also very little fat on the back of the hands, so when collagen and elastin fibres begin breaking down, it has a noticeable effect.
Coupled with the damaging effects of frequent washing and the constant exposure to the elements, one starts to understand why our hands require such special care.
Luckily, with very little effort, you can care for your hands and reverse any damage that has already been done.
The skin on your hands is more prone to dryness, so it’s essential to apply a good hand cream after every wash. Keep a hand cream in your bag, beside your bed and in your drawer at work to instantly eliminate dry skin. Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail Cream is a non-greasy, conditioning moisturiser that is quickly absorbed by the skin and nails. It nourishes the hands, resulting in softer palms, fingertips and knuckles. It is also specifically developed to make nails 30 percent stronger while, at the same time, deeply hydrating the cuticles.
