Glowing Skin in Your 20s, 30s and 40s

    Women in their 20s have dramatically different skin than women in their 40s. Needs and issues vary by generation, which is why it is so important to have a skincare routine that promotes the healthiest results.


      Ask Ellen: Hand Creams

      Friday, June 22nd, 2007

      Q: So, I was just wondering if you had any recommendations for good quality lotions and/or hand cremes. I wash my hands quite a bit and have had trouble finding a product that can stand up to numerous hand scrubbings. Any experience in this area?

      A: Well T.G. I am like you and fanatic about keeping my hands clean. It is important to keep your hands hydrated so I would recommend applying lotion after every washing. Keep a lotion by your sink, in your bag, in your desk drawer and I always apply lotion at bedtime so that the cream can really get into my skin whilst I am sleeping.

      There are a huge amount of creams and lotions on the market and it can be a little confusing. I actually have a couple of favourites that I can recommend:

      Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Hand & Nail Revitalizing Hand Lotion
      This is a really fast absorbing cream that makes your hands hydrated and your nails stronger.
      Contains keratin and vitamin E. Small size is perfect for your purse or bedside table.
      $3.79 USD $4.99 CAD

      Principessa Cattiva Diva
      I absolutely love anything made by Principessa. Their silky hand cream is lovely and smells to die for. If you are looking for a perfumed hand cream then this is the perfect one for you.
      $16 USD $18 CAD

      Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream
      This rich cream really softens and smooths your hands and cuticles. On the higher price range I enjoy this cream. It has a citrus fragrance that is quite fresh.
      $18 USD $23 CAD

      L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream
      A little pricey but pure luxury. I absolutely love the smell of lavender and if you do too then this is a great hand cream. Blends the nourishing benefits of Shea Butter with soothing A.O.C. lavender essential oil and rosemary extract. Also contains vitamin E.
