Admittedly, for all of the time and energy I devote to my skincare routine, I am not always the best with remembering to apply hand cream. Sometimes, after a long day, I will look down at my hands and be just a bit distraught over how… old they look. They say your hands and your neck are the areas we neglect most, right? Oof. I started using a neck cream last year, but somehow now at 36 years old I’m just getting into hand cream.
Anyway, I think the reason I forget about hand cream is that I don’t keep it in the right places. I always keep one in my purse but I forget about it in there! Since starting to keep a hand cream in my night stand and on my coffee table, I’ve gotten much better at remembering to apply it. And my favorite is this one from Susanne Kaufmann. It smells incredible (a bit like lilacs but not overtly floral), and is ultra hydrating – without being greasy. I am a bit obsessed and nothing is better than sitting down on my couch after a long day, pouring a glass of wine, and applying this. My hands already look so much better.
Do you use a hand cream? Which one is your favorite?
