My friends get so tired of hearing me say – ‘the best giveaway of a woman’s age is to look at her hands – make sure to moisturise those hands girls!’
Armed with the knowledge that dry hands can accelerate the visible signs of ageing – in my late twenties – I made applying a hand cream before bed, as critical a step in my nightly beauty routine as cleansing, toning and moisturising.
There have been numerous hand creams adorning my nightstand (covering a whole spectrum of price ranges) over the years, but for a long time now, I have been in a reasonably loyal and grateful relationship with No 7 Protect & Perfect Advanced – Nourishing Hand & Nail Treatment. Quite simply, it’s the best.
At first No 7 sold a separate day and night version (of which I owned both) but now they offer a ‘one product does all’.
The cream itself feels rich and luxurious and absorbs exceptionally fast; providing a long-lasting hydrated feel to my hands.
I love the fact that I can intensively moisturise my hands and nails overnight, without the need for cotton gloves (nobody wants to go to bed looking like Mickey Mouse)
Additionally, as this is No7, you can often pick up this product with £3 off the RRP or take advantage of their regular 3 for 2 offers – insert exceptionally young looking jazz hands emoji here.
RRP £11 available from Boots
