Aside from freshening up my hair with dry shampoo, applying BB Cream or a light foundation, adding a dab of blush and giving my lashes a much needed boost with mascara, part of my morning beauty routine is moisturizing my hands. Especially now with the colder weather and drier air.
They don’t get just dry, they CRACK and peel and itch. And not to be all high maintenance (well, maybe a bit) but not just any moisturizer will do. NOPE. I need long lasting (and non-perfumed) lotions to really provide serious relief and intense hydration through out the day — because it HURTS!
Not sure why, but suddenly I started thinking about those that make a career out of having perfect hands — like a hand model. While I was applying moisturizer I starting “hand vogueing” in the mirror.
You can’t do anything that can put your hands at risk. And I’m sure hand models wear gloves all year around and have people do things for them.
No really, let’s think about it.
Do they do yard work?
Or the dishes?
What about sports? Because they could fall and break their wrist or disfigure a finger.
You couldn’t be a mom. No. You’d always have faint smell of poop on your hands and well, with all the washing your hands would be really dry. Or just covered in paint. Oh man, that’s the end of their career right there.
Maybe there is a line of hand makeup out there. And, I’m sure in their contract it says they have to moisturize about 10 times a day. Phewwww, what a life!
A hand model’s Instagram page would be filled with shots of her on set getting her “hands ready to go” for a new commercial or photo shoot. Or have her looking off in the distance, faux thinking and showing off her beautiful hands. OR, she could be a total hand model celebrity putting her hands up to the paparazzi and saying “no pictures please…no” when walking through LAX.
Ha! Anyway, aside from that, in real life here the lotion is gentle on my hands, no stinging or itching and you can feel it working. My hands feel smooth, but not greasy and I can actually see my skin changing before my eyes. I’m telling you, winter weather is rough and my hands just can’t take it.
I’m not a hand model and I won’t ever be, but I can bet they have a serious hand beauty routine in order to keep them looking young and hydrated — and well, so do I!
Now, what should my hand model name be?
People everywhere are talking about AmLactin alpha-hydroxy skin care. And for good reason – it does what it’s supposed to do. No overpromises or puffery. Their formulas with clinically proven alpha-hydroxy acids gently exfoliate and intensely hydrate dry skin to help it return to a healthy, natural state. For long-lasting moisture and serious relief. Get serious care for softer skin.
