So many skin trends, from #shelfie shots on Instagram to “slugging” routines on TikTok, are focused on the face, and it’s easy to forget your hands while you chase that dewy, hydrated look. But just like our faces, our hands sometimes take a beating from the sun, environmental stressors, and dryness. They also lack the oil glands to replenish and hydrate on their own. We’d never tell you to skip on washing your hands, but repeated hand washing can cause your hands to dry out and can even irritate skin. Whether you’re typing out your latest presentation, weeding your garden, or clinking glasses of champagne with a loved one or a hot date, your hands are constantly working for you and they deserve some attention. Healthy-looking, hydrated hands feel so much better! Here’s how to incorporate your hands into your skincare routine with some good-for-your-skin products from Aloette, featuring our special Farm-to-Jar collection.
- Long story short, your hand routine is going to be similar to skin care for your face. That means that exfoliating your hands once or twice a week is a must for sloughing off dry skin. Aloette’s Hand Polish Exfoliating Hand Scrub is incredibly soothing and ideal for all skin types. This luxe, exfoliating scrub is made with sugar to gently buff away dead skin, and a conditioning blend of our signature Aloe Vera and Shea Butter to soften, condition, and smooth dull, dry skin.
- Double-Dip Those Serums. If you’re using a serum on your face in the morning, at night, or both, take the excess product and use it on the backs of your hands! A serum with retinol, like our Renewal-A Age-Defying Night Serum, can plump the look of skin and visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The hands are the first place where signs of aging can begin to show, so the intense hydration of Renewal-A Serum is perfect for a hand-care routine. If you’re more focused on brightening the appearance of your skin, our C the Light Vitamin C Serum is infused with orange peel, lemon peel, citrus essential oils, mandarin orange and citric acid.
- Hand Cream. Slathering on hand cream at every opportunity is the real key to soft, supple hands. Find one with soothing Aloe Vera, like our bestselling Hand Couture Anti-Aging Hand Crème. Formulated with an anti-wrinkle peptide, fan favorite Hand Couture also includes brightening actives that work to help reduce the look of age spots and discoloration. Plus, is there anything more Old-Hollywood-elegant than taking a leisurely moment to apply hand crème just before leaving the house or turning in for the night? We don’t think so!
- Keep the Sun at Bay! Whether it’s your face, your shoulders, or your hands, protecting your skin from the sun is the most important factor in protecting both the look of skin and its health. If you use a product with SPF for your face, you can hit the backs of your hands with some of it before you head out. Aloette’s Correction Code is SPF 25, and because it’s formulated with an anti-wrinkle peptide, this daytime moisturizer can work as a multitasker to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for your face AND your hands. Can you handle it?
