Julia Petkevich-Sochnova, author of the BeButterfly blog and columnist at BeautyHack, talks about hand creams that will come in handy during the cold season.
With the onset of cold weather, the topic of skin care becomes more relevant than ever: today I want to tell you about wonderful hand care products that will help you survive all the hardships of the weather!
Undoubtedly the best nourishing hand cream is the legendary Shea Loccitane Shea Butter Hand Cream! I think almost everyone knows about it and most have tried it - it is difficult to find a cream that would be so loved by everyone. He won such popularity for a reason. It has a very dense and rich texture, so it is ideal for night use - instantly softens, moisturizes, nourishes and regenerates the skin. Hands are getting better every day!
In hand care, as well as other parts of the body, cleansing is very important. If you opt for a soap with a mild detergent base, you can avoid excessive drying out during washing, which will subsequently have a beneficial effect on the condition of your hands. Almost all Lush soaps are just gentle to the skin, for example, "Fruits and Leaves" not only delicately cleanses, but also smells relaxing, and also gently scrubs due to fig seeds. It has a creamy foam, a very soft texture, so this familiar action turns into a real spa ritual.
Hand scrubs are interesting and useful, which, although not so common, are still there. At one time, the June Jacobs Peppermint Hand and Foot Polish peeling for hands and feet with a refreshing mint aroma was very fond and remembered. It contains a very large amount of small abrasive particles, which turn the skin into silk in a few minutes, and the use is especially enjoyable. But, unfortunately, the brand is no longer sold in Russia, so it will be problematic to get it if you are not going to travel soon.
But L'Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub for hands "Minutka" is sold in every store of the brand, of which we have a lot in our country! This scrub is also part of the shea butter line, so it will be an excellent pair with the aforementioned cream. It contains 15% shea butter, and exfoliation occurs due to the sugar base. It intensively cleanses and exfoliates - after it you want to touch and touch your hands!
After active cleansing, it's great to use rich and oily products that will be even more effective in such moments! For example, “Lemon Sensation” from Lush, which is loved by almost all nail bloggers - directly those who pay much more attention to hands and nails than other beauty lovers, is perfect for these purposes. The product has a very thick consistency and a rich lemon scent - it copes well with the care of cuticles and dry skin of the hands. And if you use it exclusively as a cuticle cream, then the jar will last for ages.
Hand masks, like scrubs, are not frequent guests of the assortment of brands, but they exist and are very convenient. For example, the Sephora Avocado Hand Mask is aimed at nourishing and regenerating - it will ideally fit into the beauty ritual of body care fans. Inside a disposable sachet there are gloves soaked in the product, which must be put on hands and left for 15–20 minutes, and then massage the rest of the product into the skin of the hands. It is ideal to carry out such a procedure before going to bed, when you don’t need to touch anything afterwards: then the mask will have time to fully absorb - in the morning your hands will say “thank you!”. There are three types of hand masks in the Sephora line. But it was with the avocado that I liked the most.
