Did you know that your hands can reveal your age?
So while you’ve been making anti-ageing efforts for your face, your hands could be telling a different story.
Many of us neglect taking care of our hands and use harsh drugstore hand wash that dry out the skin. Hands are left feeling dry, scaly and rough — and over time, start to look haggard.
What’s more, the abrasive formulas in dishwashing liquid make it worse and further irritate sensitive skin.
Start practising anti-ageing for your hands today. Wear gloves when washing dishes and apply a daily SPF on your hands. Use hand wash that doesn’t strip the skin and always use a moisturising hand cream at night.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best liquid soaps that will keep your hands youthful and soft.
Scent: an uplifting citrusy fragrance.
Known for “clean skincare” that’s free from harsh chemicals, Ren’s hand wash is a prime choice for a gentle cleanse that leaves the skin feeling soft.
For extra TLC: Pair it with the Ren Citrus Limonum Prebiotic Hand Cream to protect hands and nails from bacteria, while keeping it soft and hydrated.
Scent: ‘Rum’ has an intoxicating fragrance of bergamot and plum while ‘Lime’ features a light and zingy scent.
This set of hand washes comes in two different scents and doubles as a gentle body wash. Keep one handy at the kitchen sink for a gentle rinse after using harsh dishwashing liquids.
For extra TLC: Apply a rich hand cream like the Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer to provide relief to calloused, dry hands.
Scent: A gorgeous, uplifting scent of cold pressed sweet orange oil.
