Have you ever heard someone say "if you have any left over serums or creams, apply them to the backs of your hands!" This is because after our face & neck, our hands tend to show our true age as well as any environmental factors which may impact them.


A lot of hand creams contain artificial fragrances which can react with UV rays and cause pigmentation and fine lines on the skin. This is one great reason to create your very own and know exactly what is in it!
