“OUR FAVORITES” – Hand Creams
Now girls. We all know that our hands are one of the first three places that show signs of aging. (The other two being the under-eye area and the neck.) So it’s very important to treat our hands with care and to protect them from the sun. If you are especially dry, then a cream formula may work best for you. Otherwise, a light but moisturizing lotion should do the trick. Throw one in your purse so you’ll have it handy throughout the day and for extra moisturizing, keep a bottle or tube by your nightstand and apply generously right before nodding off to sleep.
