They Are The ONEs WE SHOULD BE TAKING MORE CARE OF.

The routine of looking after our hands is one that is often neglected. Guilty, I raise my hand here. Our hands, a vital support system in everyday life, are frequently forgotten about.

They play a significant role. We express ourselves with them and show affection with them. But, we also put them through some tough doings; the stress of daily actives and chores.

We should be taking more care of them. (WHY is it I neglect to do what I know I should") With this in mind and making more of a conscious effort to consider Number 1, hand cream must become a vital part of the beauty routine.

Here is what I’m thinking.

Tips for Taking Care of Number 1
* Use a gentle soap when washing them.

* Exfoliate at least once a week to keep them feeling revitalised.

* Like our face, our hands are exposed to the sun’s rays. Protect them when walking and when driving.

* Moisturising is crucial; washing regularly to prevent germs dries out the skin. We need to replenish hydration.

* Massage, using a nourishing cream, up and down fingers and palms in a circular motion, help release stress and pain.
* Avoid extremely hot water.

* Pat gently after washing rather than rubbing; it is less likely to irritate and dry out the skin.

* Seal in moisture by applying hand cream whilst hands are still damp.

My latest crush on hand cream comes from Byredo. My friend, Fiona introduced me  – every time we meet she would open her handbag during the course of our time together and dab a little on her hands. I was curious and she told me she has a baby tube not only in all her handbags but also for her travels.  These are available in 30ml tubes, making them so easy to move about with.  She loves Blanche  – so do I and recently I tried Bal’d’Afrique – heavenly. These little tubes are a bit of an addiction but my hands are reaping the benefits.

I like them for their light consistency and nourishing texture but there is something else. It is rare to stumble across a hand cream that delivers delicate fragrance, without having to compromise on hydration.

Try Blanche and tell me if you stop at one. xv
