You are always using them so may not know that the skin on your hands is very delicate and can easily give away your age, so it is advisable to look after them and give them a little TLC every now and again.
It is vital to wash and dry them properly, keep nails neat and tidy and when washing up or spending time outside in the cold, wear gloves. Go easy on antiseptic hand gels and use a mild soap at home.
Whether you’re typing at a computer, outside gardening, washing dishes or doing the shopping, your hands rarely get a break. At Pure Beauty we have some great products that address exposure to the elements, ageing and general wear so your hands look and feel great.
The Elemis Frangipani Monoi Hand and Nail Cream is new to Pure Beauty but we love it already. It is a deeply nourishing cream that hydrates and replenishes the skin and leaves it silky smooth. Set aside five minutes each night and use this cream to give yourself a mini hand massage. Use just a little bit of the lotion and work it across your fingers, palms and wrists, focusing on your pressure points. Not only will the shea butter and Vitamins D and E, help condition your hands but this is also the perfect way to unwind after a busy day.
The Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment is a beauty ‘must-have’ and for good reason. This intense, non-greasy treatment has been created to protect and repair chapped hands as well as strengthening nails so they are less likely to split. Packed with Provitamin B5, Algae Extract and Sweet Almond Oil, dry, rough hands are softened and given protection against further damage.
If you are looking for intensive, long-lasting moisturisation, look no further than the gorgeous Elemis Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail Cream. Free from artificial colours, mineral oils and parabens, this beautifully fragranced hand cream is rich with nourishing oils and softening flower milks. Abysinnian oil replaces lost lipids and after the first application, dry, damaged skin is protected and feels softer.
The Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil is a next-generation, daily-use treatment oil that solves dryness and dehydration while also reinforcing and protection the skin. While many use it for a dewy, youthful complexion, a little oil gently rubbed into the hands can give them the extra comfort they’ve been craving.
For a classic feel when it comes to hand cream, it has to be the Elemis British Botanical Hand and Nail Butter which is brimming with fragrance from the British countryside. Essential oils of soothing Lavender and Chamomile have been mixed with uplifting Geranium and Palmarosa as well as Burdock extract and shea butter to create an intensely moisturising experience. Regular application will leave you with hands that are left soft, hydrated and delicately fragranced.
