Quick! Think of all of the things that you can do without your hands. Pretty short list, huh?! Many women (and men) invest in various skin and hair care products, but the one area that is often times neglected is our hands. We all know that the ever important first impression often times involves a handshake -- and we only have one time to make that impression. Although many people think that getting their think that getting their weekly or bi-weekly manicure is enough, you still need to care for your hands in between appointments. The best way to do this, is to envelop your hands in the luxurious and nourishing comfort of a delicious hand cream!
The key things that set a 'luxury' hand cream apart of the rest of the pack, is that they usually have SPF, they continue to hydrate your hands after washing and they also contain properties that help even out the tone of your hands to reveal more youthful and radiant looking skin. These hand creams also nourish and protect your cuticles and nails.
