Do you have a hand cream that you love?

Typically, our hands show signs of aging even more than our faces. Scary, right? You may want to invest some time into caring for them on a regular basis. Start with these simple tips:

1. Get rid of harsh, drying hand soaps: Choose moisturizing bars or liquid soaps that contain hydrating oils like olive oil or argan oil would be best.

2. Exfoliate frequently: Sit a small jar of brown sugar scrub on your sink so that it is easily accessible. Two or 3 times a week, after washing your hands, use a small amount of scrub to dissolve dead skin cells. This will help your moisturizing hand creams to penetrate much better. See our DIY Brown Sugar Scrub tutorial to learn how to make your own.

3. Moisturize: Always have a tube of hand cream handy in your purse, at your desk, in your bathroom. As soon as you wash your hands, apply cream. Totalbueaty.com recommends a few good ones. Here’s what they say are some of the best performing hand creams.
