It is said that you should never bite the hand that feeds you, and if you need a helping hand, you'll find two at the ends of your arms; one is for you, the second is to help others. But hands are more than just functional. Beautiful hands require care and maintenance. We all use our hands more than we probably realize: for work, play, expressing ourselves and hugging those we love. They're on display every day, whether we like it or not, and they deserve our attention. We can protect them from the elements by applying sunscreen and wearing gloves in cold weather and when handling cleaning products or other chemical substances. Don't forget, however, that our hands need to be kept hydrated, and nothing hydrates like a well-made hand cream. A wide selection of hand creams are available that are designed to protect, nourish, rejuvenate, hydrate and repair dry, cracked skin. Hand creams can also soothe rough cuticles, reduce pigmentation marks and age spots, regulate perspiration, eliminate bacteria and slow the process of wrinkling and aging. Give yourself a helping hand by keeping them soft, smooth and younger-looking.
