SPF Hand Creams Are My Newest I’m-Almost-30 Obsession
May 25, 2009
With each passing day, I’m just a little closer to 30. And while I’m not dreading the big birthday, I’m noticing the small ways that I’m turning into my mother. The latest are my hands— they’re looking more like hers every day, with wrinkles and freckles and veins. In a vain attempt to slow time’s passing, all my hand lotion has to have SPF, like these:
HissyFit’s Handy Work ($22) is a luxurious SPF 30 hand cream that has soothing aloe and vitamin e, and smells of orangey mint. Between fighting age spots and smelling amazingly good, this is one of my new favorites.
Sephora’s BODY Nourishing Hand Cream ($15) has anti-UVA and UVB filters giving it an SPF 10 protection as well as moisturizing shea butter and sweet almond oil. In other words, the formula soothes, protects and moisturizes all at once.
Rich Girl Hand Cream SPF 25 ($24) doesn’t come with a big price tag, but it does have a long list of UVA/UVB filters and moisturizing oils that work to firm skin and fight the signs of aging. The mild floral scent is fresh too.
