You know, we never use to believe that our hands would betray our age but recently we’re thinking we might have judged that adage a little too quickly. So trust us when we say, we’re rubbing in Weleda’s Unscented Hand Cream like it’s our job to make up for lost time.
Rich in jojoba, borage seed and coconut oils, this fragrance-, ethyl- and alcohol-free formula feels as good as it makes our hands look. The jojoba oil helps to smooth our skin and regulate its moisture balance. The borage seed oil soothes itchy redness into oblivion courtesy of its high concentration of gamma-linolenic acid and helps lock moisture into our skin, while the coconut oil gives our hands a silky-soft touch. Add in trehalose, an ingredient renowned for trapping moisture into the skin, and our age-gauge is gaining so many years we’re regressing back to our early twenties.
It’s easy to do too. We just keep a tube of the vegan-friendly cream in our bag and cart it along with us wherever we go. The packaging is durable yet lightweight and one hundred per cent recyclable, so we have no problems picking up a second tube to keep by our bedside on the nightstand. And it’s restorative powers work on even the most sensitive of skin, so our routine is now autopilot and worry free. Our only wish is that it worked on crow’s our feet…
