Sunday Tip #9

Every Sunday I shall share here a beauty tip that I’ve read or heard about, and leave my comments or thoughts on it. Please feel free to leave your views, too! :)

The state of your hands, that is.

Not to boast but long before I heard about this “tip” (If it may be called so) I already had a hunch about it many many years ago- I think it was Victoria Beckham‘s and Madonna‘s hands? I was commenting to Mum about how they spent thousands of dollars (Or more) on maintaining their “young” faces but neglected their hands mainly so you can still tell their age by looking at their hands and not their faces. Not too sure about the state of their hands right now though, but there you have it :P

You can maintain the youthfulness of your hands the way you take care of your face, except in less steps- by just moisturising! With a hand cream, or if you have some unsuitable moisturisers lying around you can use them on your hands. My personal favourite hand cream is O.P.I Avoplex High Intensity Hand And Nail Cream. I find that it smells nice, absorbs fast, keeps my hands soft and is not greasy or slimy or make you feel like you have sweaty hands, all of which are important criteria to me as I use my hands a lot.

Some recommend using a heavy moisturiser/cream at night while they sleep, and/or slip on gloves, but I find it rather cumbersome and restrictive and I usually wake up in the middle of the night to remove them. Or that my hands become greasy and feel uncomfortable. But they do give really soft hands!

  1. I’m tardy when it come to applying hand creams as I do wash my hands quite a lot (blame my OCD for that!). My favourite hand cream is L’occitane’s Shea Butter hand cream as it leaves my hands nicely moisturised without that greasy feeling! Reading you post has reminded me on how important our hands are… To mask our true age so hand creams, here I come! :D

    • I wash my hands a lot as well! :P Yay for OCD? I’ve only started using hand creams diligently last year… so you’ve got a head start on me! Go go! :D
