Summer is hard on your hands and feet. Even if you forgot to protect your hands while cruising around this summer soaking up the sun's rays, you can still get the baby soft hands you’ve longed for with Pevonia hand care products. And, as you don open-toed sandals and flip-flops more often than not, summer foot care is likely at the forefront of your beauty routine. But not all hand and foot care products have the health of your skin and body in mind. For sexy hands and feet this time of year and onwards, dip your toes (and hands!) in here.
What Your Hands and Feet Are Saying
Our hands and feet say quite a lot. We use our hands to express ourselves with mannerisms to get a point across or to show we care with a gentle touch. Or maybe you opt for high-heeled strappy sandals over closed-toe flats to look more enticing. Did you know that physical touch is one of our five love languages?
According to Gary Chapman, Ph.D. and author of “The 5 Love Languages'', touch is one way we convey love to our partners. Even if touch isn’t your primary love language, holding hands or exchanging foot massages are non-verbal forms of giving and receiving love that reinforce your affection for your partner. It’s also about self-care. The state of our hands and feet can convey to others how much we care for ourselves. We may unknowingly communicate with our hands and feet when we neglect caring for them. Or maybe you repeatedly slather on skincare for feet and hands, yet your hands and feet say otherwise, which is an all too common struggle.
As we age, keeping hands and feet moisturized is challenging as our skin’s natural moisturizing capabilities diminish. Adopting a healthy approach to aging hands and feet is a powerful way to show yourself some love and put your best foot (and hand) forward.
Skincare for Hands and Feet
Repeated hand washing, pools, long hot showers, exposure to damaging free radicals, UV rays, and pollutants can leave skin with visible signs of aging, including dark spots, skin thinning, lines, and wrinkles. With our feet under wraps during boot weather, they become relegated to the “out of sight, out of mind” zone. But with our hands in immediate view, they are much harder to ignore. When summer comes, the sun acts like a highlighter on our imperfections, making dryness and signs of aging hard to miss. With most hand and foot care products leaving you with dryness and dissatisfaction, it may make you want to keep your hands and tootsies covered up.
But as we tend to bare our skin much more often during the hotter months of the year, that isn’t practical. Even after sandal weather, you’ll still need skincare for feet for yoga class, cuddles with your honey (we hope!), or visits to people's homes where "no shoes" policies are in place. So, no matter what, you need to make skincare for hands and feet part of your year-round beauty routine.
Anti Aging Treatments for Feet and Hands
In your quest to age gracefully, you can slow the aging process healthfully. Turn things around quickly and enjoyably with Pevonia Treatments that you can do at home to get the soft and sexy hands and feet you and your partner desire.
Cleanse: Wipe the slate clean with a sulfate-free natural skin cleanser. (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate break down proteins in the skin and strip away healthy oils, triggering premature signs of aging.) Pro-Tip: Treat your hands like you would your face. For youthful-looking hands, consider keeping our best natural face cleanser for aging skin on your vanity for daily hand washing. To ensure you are not using harsh, drying formulas when away from home, carry our Deluxe Trial Size Anti-Stress Bath & Shower Gel with you wherever you go.
Exfoliate: Next, exfoliate with the Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream. The enzymes will gently slough away dulling dead skin cells to make way for your serum, mask, skin care cream, and sunscreen. It can be used once or twice weekly wherever rough, dry patches appear. For an intensive treatment, combine the Pevonia peeling cream with the Silky Skin Body Scrub for double the exfoliation.
Treat: For smooth, ageless hands and feet, apply one of the following serums followed by the Pevonia Ageless Skin Collagen Mask to bolster natural protein production and optimal rejuvenation:
- For fine lines, wrinkles, and skin thinning, the Stem Cells Phyto-Elite Intensive Serum or Timeless Repair Serum during the day and the Micro-Retinol Essential Serum for night are excellent choices.
- Target dark spots and hyperpigmentation with the Lumablanc Cream to help hands regain luminosity.
Moisturize: Avoid body moisturizers with mineral oil, as even though they create an illusion of hydration, they can actually cause skin thinning, a chief symptom of aging.
Instead, use an anti-aging hand cream daily to revitalize and strengthen the skin's protective barrier for touchably soft hands. Callous-smoothing Glycolic Acid, Vitamin A, and Beta-Carotene blend with moisturizing Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E, Almond Extract, and soothing natural skin care ingredients in the Multi-Active Hand Cream. The antioxidant Vitamins A and E repair and fight free radicals while preventing water loss, which is a must since surface dehydration is a prime cause of aging.
Apply a natural foot cream that addresses cracked heels, foot odor
Protect: Preserve your efforts and prevent subsequent UV damage and dark spots with conscientiously and carefully formulated daily sun protection. The YouthRenew Tinted Cream SPF 30 protects against UVA and UVB rays, plus has a sheer self-adjusting mineral tint to conceal redness and dark spots on your hands.
But, if you are in front of a computer or cell phone all day, we recommend our Hydrating Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 for the added blue light protection against light emitted from electronic devices. Both formulas are made with naturally-sourced ocean and reef-safe sunscreens that leave no white cast.
In addition to natural skin care products, try to wash and shower quickly with lukewarm water to avoid over-drying hands and feet. Consider wearing gloves when gardening or cleaning and light socks when you sleep for the softest, sexiest hands and feet possible! Want to maximize results for your healthiest skin ever?
