The one thing giving away your age

Apart from our faces, the skin on our hands is the most exposed to environmental aggressors. From hand washing to UV rays to daily activities, our hands go through the wringer. The underside (or the palmar surface) is thick and durable, however the upper side (the dorsal surface) is inherently thin and fragile.

Now you don’t need to choose between treating your hands and scrolling your feed.

This helps the skincare ingredients to penetrate deeper into the epidermis giving you an intensive spa type treatment.  Browse our selection of six hand masks here.
