Despite the fact that they are the parts of your body that are the most exposed to wear, tear and the elements, your hands and feet are also the bits you are most likely to neglect. When life is busy and you have little time to spare but need to look your best, you probably prioritise the areas that are most on display i.e. your face!
With the summer holiday season now upon us, you are most likely dusting off your sandals and flip-flops in readiness for those balmy temperatures; but are your feet ready to be put on display? Ill-fitting shoes and high heels can leave your feet looking less than their best, so make sure you are including them when you wash, scrub and moisturise your body…
Hands too, need a little TLC from time to time or the fragile skin can quickly become dehydrated and acquire a rather ‘crêpey’ appearance. They are also particularly prone to hyper pigmented patches or ‘age’ spots as they are often exposed to sunlight without any protection. Make sure that when you apply an SPF to your face, you also remember to use one on your hands too. Add Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF 50 to your usual hand cream to ensure sun damage is kept to a minimum, and treat them every evening to a dose of the Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment.
It can be easy to forget about our extremities: feet are often kept under wraps and hands are overlooked, yet a little time and care can keep them happy and looking great.
