Hand Care

Hand care > Protecting and moisturizing… not just for your face

Your hands' skin has fewer sebaceous glands than the skin on your face, meaning it requires more hydration and protection.

Tips and tricks

  • Wear warm insulated gloves when going outside in winter
  • Wear rubber gloves when doing housework, since many cleaning products are hard on your hands
  • Use a moisturizing cream to lock in your skin's natural moisture
  • When applying hand cream, always massage your hands with strokes that move in towards your heart, never outwards

Your hands and the sun
By protecting your hands with specially-formulated lotion, you reduce the risk of seeing your hands covered in brown spots as your skin ages. And always wear sunscreen with a high SPF on your hands when basking in the sun: its rays are a sworn enemy of your hands' youthfulness (and of other parts as well!)

Liver spots
If liver spots are already showing up on your hands, massage them several times a day with a cream containing vitamin A, vitamin C and alpha-hydroxy acids. There are also creams available on the market with depigmentation properties (Decleor, Matis).
