Girls, do you ever look at your hands and wonder when they turned into your mother’s hands? If you do, chances are you’ve been neglecting their care. (Unless, of course, your mom took really great care of her hands. If so, then kudos to her and you!)
Most women go to great lengths to keep our faces looking young and fresh. They put on the latest, greatest, natural moisturizers and wrinkle reducers. Yet, the only moisturizer that touches their hands goes on the tips of their fingers to massage into their faces. I can’t tell you how many women I know who don’t use hand cream. Come on girlfriends, it’s time to give your hands a little love.
Your hands will always be a dead give away of your real age if you don’t take care of them. I love using natural and organic hand cream on my hands and fingers to keep them soft, smooth, and hiding my real age.
If you’re nodding along as you’re reading this and thinking, “Yeah, I do need to start taking better care of my hands,” I’ve got two recommendations for you.
- L’Occitane’s Olive Tree Organic hand cream is one of my long-time faves. It smells sooo lovely – absolutely intoxicating with the scent of olive and made with shea butter, organic aloe vera, and calendula extract.
- Natures Paradise is another organic hand cream that I’ve tried and really liked. Their hand creams come in various scents such as citrus or vanilla sugar (they also have an unscented cream).
So look down at your hands if you dare. If you don’t like what you see, get started on a daily moisturizing regimen now. You’ll love the difference it makes!
