It’s true – we spend so much time worrying about the wrinkles, lines and blotches on our face, that we forget about noticing our hands and here’s a fact: our hands often show the first signs of ageing!
Here’s why…. our hands are exposed practically 24/7 and at greater risk of damage caused by sun exposure as the skin on the back of our hands is thinner than the skin on our face. So, we really should be looking to use a good hand cream to help prevent the age spots and wrinkles that will appear quickly if our hands are lacking in moisture.
When washing your hands, we recommend using our Cleansing Soap Bar or our Hydrating Hand & Body Wash from our Australian Botanicals range, as these products are gentle and hydrating and won’t dry your skin out like many hand washes and sanitisers containing synthetic ingredients and chemicals which will strip the natural oils from your hands and dry them out.
After washing your hands, it is always a good idea to apply a hand cream to lock in that moisture. Our Australian Botanicals Intensely Moisturising Hand Cream has been highly commended in this year’s Natural Beauty Awards 2019 by Nature & Health Magazine and contains wonderfully rich, hydrating ingredients including shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil and avocado oil.
All our products are 100% natural and contain certified organic ingredients and the amazing properties that these ingredients contain get absorbed by your skin rather than just sitting on the surface of your skin as products containing petroleum, mineral oil and silicones will.
Another fact is that our Intensely Moisturising Hand Cream is also quite versatile and can be used on your face too as a rich moisturiser!!! One of our happy customers recently posted on Instagram saying it’s one of the only creams that she will use on her face due to an intolerance she has to lots of ingredients used in other products. We are so pleased that we can safely say our products are suitable for all skin types even the highly sensitive ones and that is due to the high quality natural ingredients we source.
So, one of your New Year resolutions ought to include sparing a thought for those hard-working hands and looking after them! Give them the care and attention they deserve and as we all begin to age, or if you already have mature skin, let them keep guessing at your age – hands can be a real giveaway of a person’s age you know!
