Okay, so it's a #firstworldproblem, but COVID-19 was not kind to our hands this year.
In fact, due to government recommendations that we "wash our hands with soap or alcohol-based sanitiser frequently, after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing," it'll probably surprise exactly zero percent of you that our hands may be seriously dry and cracked right now.
But we're not here to remind you of these "unprecedented times". At Dermalume, we're offering a solution to your pandemic problems in the form of our Hand Therapy range, which are, in our humble opinion, pretty much the best hand creams in the world.
While all five products are rich in oils to soften even the roughest skin, here's exactly what makes each one of them so special.
- No.1 Velvet Roses Hand Therapy 30ml/80ml
Unless you were a contestant on "The Bachelor", we completely understand you may not have had time to "stop and smell the roses" this year. But there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't apply them to your skin. Our No.1 Velvet Rose Hand Therapy is enriched with the purest and most organic local ingredients, including Carica Papaya Extract (with high content of vitamins A and C to promotes healthy skin) kairpan compounds (which suppresses the penetration of microorganisms and other toxins to clear up your skin and provide protection against skin problems) and rose-hip seed oil - obviously! This superstar ingredient contains Vitamin A and Vitamin C, antioxidants, a diuretic (which reduces puffiness) and anti-aging properties. Together, all these ingredients combine to moisturise and restore the skin, leave your hands feeling regenerated and velvety smooth, and, we think, deserve the honour of being crowned the best hand cream in the world. (Instyle Magazine agrees too!)
- No.2 Peach Blossom & Honey Hand Therapy 30ml/80ml
"Peaches and cream" may make for a smooth RnB Song, but for smooth hands (and we know that's what you're here for) the magic combo is peaches and honey - specifically, our No. 2 Peach Blossom and Honey Hand Therapy. Among the list of sweet ingredients in this tube are oat extract (which contains natural antioxidants including avenanthramides which assist skin health), honey extract (and its plethora of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and naturally-occurring antioxidants) and peaches (stating the obvious, but have a sniff and you'll understand why we included these). Combined together, these products will provide your hands with intense hydration leaving them feeling soft and supple.
- No.3 Grapefruit & Sea Salt Hand Therapy 30ml/80ml
The Grapefruit Diet is NOT a good idea! Including this citrus superfruit in your hand cream, on the other hand, definitely is! That's why we made it the main ingredient in our No.3 Grapefruit and Sea Salt Hand Therapy. Pure grapefruit essential oil is tissue toning and invigorates tired skin, helping optimise a healthy immune system. It is also uplifting, refreshing and reviving to the mind and body. But that's not all! Its detoxifying and purifying properties make it a useful option for cellulite. Working together with Lime Extract (which provides the most refreshing citrus scent) this hand cream deeply hydrates and creates a natural barrier to protect skin from toxins.
- No.4 Coconut & Lime Hand Therapy 30ml/80ml
Coconut oil? Is there anything it can not do? From hair creams to face masks (and don't even get us started on using it in raw slices!) this super ingredient and its blend of fatty acids (44 percent lauric acid and 16.8 percent myristic acid), deeply hydrate your hands and removes dead skin cells. Combine it with aloe extract (which contains antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and beta carotene, which fight free radicals in the body, and ward off the aging process) and a hint of lime, and you have a hand cream that doubles as inspiration for the tropical holiday you'll definitely want to escape too.
No.5 Moonlight Pomegranate Hand Therapy 30ml/80ml
Any skincare that features pomegranate is a little bit posh. And our No.5 Moonlight Pomegranate Hand Therapy will definitely appeal to the luxury-hand cream-lover in you. Enriched with the purest and most organic local ingredients, it features shea butter (which acts as a skin-conditioning agent, helping retain moisture, decrease the loss of water by forming a barrier on the skin's surface, and reduce the appearance of rough patches and dry flakes on the skin) and pomegranate extract - who's high levels of Vitamin C and antioxidants, can help prevent skin cell damage, repair sun-damaged and aging skin and extend the life of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen and elastin, the components that give strength and support to the skin.
