A complete skincare regimen’, is a phrase that has been widely used to advocate the importance of a healthy facial care routine, yet somehow still remains incomplete! How you may ask. Well, maybe because you forgot one of the most vital parts of the body- the hands! Ironically, carrying second-hand importance, the care for hands has been limited to only sanitizers & soaps. Well, a life without regular sanitization & regular handwash is unfathomable, one practice still remains forsaken- which is the use of hand cream. Regular usage of handwash & sanitizers can make your skin extremely dry and can lead to flakiness and irritation. Thus, using a hand cream is extremely important when you’re dreaming of having soft & supple skin.
Our hands are at work day & night. From typing out this article to you scrolling down the screen- our hands do so much for us and still remain neglected. Daily activities do take a toll on your hands, but it’s never too late. Have a look at these 7 major reasons why you need hand cream at your disposal.
1. Makes Hands Soft & Supple:
The skin type differs from one part to another of our body. The thick skin of the palm makes it difficult for moisture to penetrate, while the thinner skin of the back has fewer oil glands, hence making both sides prone to drying skin. Mamaearth’s CoCo Hand Cream is the perfect solution to combat dryness, retain moisture and keep the skin nourished for long hours.
1. Fight Off Premature Aging
Ladies, believe it or not, your hands are one of the first body parts that show the first signs of aging. The elasticity lessens with age which results in an enhanced process of wrinkling & dehydration. Thus, choose a hand cream that is rich in shea butter & vitamin C to restore the moisture and tighten the skin. Our suggestion? Use Mamaearth’s Vitamin C Hand Cream and fall in love with your skin.
2. Combat Harmful Sun Rays
The back of the hands is the most sun-exposed, and hence, more prone to the damage caused by UV rays. Problems like sunburn occur when UV rays penetrate the deep layers of skin and destroy skin cells, resulting in more production of melanin a.k.a., tanning. To create a protective barrier, Mamaearth’s Ubtan hand cream is the ultimate savior. Turmeric is known for its skin brightening properties, and thus will help you not just detan but safeguard the skin too!
