They say hands are one of the first areas to show age. And no wonder, they are always exposed to the environments, be it cold winds during winter or the harsh sun during summer. So today I'll talk about some of my favourite anti-ageing hand creams. 

First up there's the Clarins Age Control Hand Lotion SPF15 is a gorgeous lightweight cream that absorbs into the hands instantly, without any need to massage it in. It leaves the hands feeling lovely and soft and with a powdery satin feel, and without feeling greasy or sticky as it is also non-oily. It contains a variety of plant extracts, and promises to help prevent age spits from forming, while brightening existing age spots and promote a more even and younger looking tone, as well as condition the nails. Generally I feel that this cream has made my hands look lightly more even-toned, and my nails, including cuticles are no longer feeling as dry, having clearly benefited from the daily use of this lotion.

The cream also has an amazing subtle floral scent, which also lingers on the hands for long after the cream has absorbed into the hands, and I also love that it has added SPF to protect from further sun damage.

Then there's the Medik8 Hydr8™ B5 Hand Cream SPF15, which is a is a thicker and richer hand cream, which also absorbs without any greasiness, although it does take a few moments longer than the Clarins. But the wait is worth it, as it leaves the hands feeling super moisturised, with an invisible film on the surface of the skin to neutralise pollutants and prevent them from being absorbed into the epidermis, while also shielding the skin against other irritants such as carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide from industrial fumes and car emissions, along with particles from i.e. cigarette smoke, and thereby deminishing pollution-caused ageing effects such as redness, irritation and dull, devitalised skin.

The cream also contains ingredients to add intense moisture to he skin to nourish, help with moisture retention and help heal and plump the skin. It has quickly helped save my dry hands, leaving them so soft and smooth. I also love that this one also comes with SPF15, and that it has the most divine citrus scent.

Next there's the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Hand Cream, which is loaded with rich oils and waxes to offer the skin intensive nourishment and protection, while stimulating the skin's moisture activating ability, supporting the skin's strength and elasticity as well as natural resilience, and regenerating ageing skin. The rich ingredients does meant hat this intense cream takes a few moments to absorb, but it leaves even the driest of hands feeling silky soft and smooth for hours.

I love that it comes in an easy to use pump bottle, and that it is made using natural and organic ingredients, certified to NATRUE standards, as well as free from all the nasty chemical ingredients including synthetic fragrances, dyes, preservatives, mineral oils, parabens, silicones, phthalates, PEGs etc. It has a lovely, slightly spicy scent, from the natural ingredients including red clover.

Then there there's the Dr. Lewinn's Essentials Hand & Nail Cream is another incredible anti-ageing hand cream. It contains among others aloe, and multi vitamins including A, B and E, and it helps add intense moisture and nourishment to the hands, and leave them with protected from damage by creating an invisible protection layer on the skin. The cream is very rich, yet absorbs quickly and easily into the hands and leaves them so much softer and smoother. And after just a short time, it leaves the hands not only soft, smooth and thoroughly hydrated, and hence healthier and younger too. And all while caring and improving your nails and cuticles at the same time.

Finally, there's the Organic Island Body Nourishing Hand Cream, which is a certified organic Australian brand. And of course it is also free from all the chemicals including sulphates, silicones, synthetic colours and fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, preservatives, mineral oils etc. Rather, this anti-ageing hand cream is made with advanced active natural ingredients including lychii berry, olive leave, rosehip, avocado, shea butter, vitamin E and macadamia. The cream promises to help heal , nourish, hydrate and protect the hands from environmental stress, while improving the texture of the skin, and transforming tired and dry skin into renewed, soft and subtle hands with a more youthful appearance. The cream is lightweight, and absorbs into the skin after a few moments, immediately leaving the hands feeling so incredibly silky soft and with a lovely sheen. It has a lovely natural floral scent, which you can only love. It doesn't get much better than certified organic anti-ageing!!
