Our hands work hard every single day. But so often they're overlooked when it comes to rewarding them with some TLC. I'm certainly guilty of neglecting mine in the past. Of a morning and night, I'd layer my face in serums, oils and moisturisers and my poor hands would be left to drink up any residue that my complexion didn't.
But recently I learnt that because of what we expose our hands to every day (sun, harsh soaps, hot water) the skin on them ages faster than the skin on our face. Knowing this, it seemed absurd that I would take such care of my face and not my hands! So recently I began using Dermalume No.1 Velvet Roses Hand Therapy, much to the delight of my mitts. Dermalume's Hand Therapy is nourishing and Australian made (tick and tick!) - but here's what I love most about it:
- Enriched by rosehip oil
I use rosehip oil on my face every day, so I was pleased to see it as a hero ingredient in Dermalume No.1 Velvet Roses Hand Therapy. Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants which help to repair and protect the skin, plus restore hydration - goodbye, dry hands! Also, in the mix is papaya extract which has a high concentration of vitamins A and C, which are both great for encouraging cell renewal and promoting brighter more youthful looking skin.
- Gorgeous natural scent
Dermalume enlisted a master perfumer to design scents that were authentic representations of their natural forms. As a result, the Velvet Rose Hand Therapy smells like real garden roses. The fragrance is soft and feminine and I like it because doesn't overpower my perfume.
- Absorbs fast, like really fast!
When it comes to applying a hand cream, for me fast absorption is a non-negotiable. And despite all the richly nourishing ingredients in the formula, the hand cream sinks into the skin in a snap and leaves nothing behind, nothing! I love that I can apply Hand Therapy and go about my day without feeling greasy or sticky.
Thanks to Dermalume's No.1 Velvet Roses Hand Therapy I'm now a hand cream convert, and I apply it twice a day. I didn't realise how rough and dry the skin on my hands had gotten until I saw the damage reversed. My hands are not only softer and more hydrated (and nicer to hold!), but the skin appears plumper and I've noticed fewer lines.
