I’m kind of a hand cream freak. I have bottles spread all over the house and in every one of my bags. I refuse to be the victim of that whole “your hands show your age” nonsense. One way I battle time marching over my hands is how I apply my lotion. I never thought my technique was that different until I noticed people looking. It’s one of those things that doesn’t come naturally, but when you see it, you’re all, “Duh, why didn’t I think of that?”
Hand Cream Application Tip
Between the ads we see and the observations made watching our mothers and friends, our beauty techniques are learned by studying others. I’m sure we’ve all seen a commercial with a woman pouring lotion onto her palm, then rubbing it on her legs. Makes sense, right?
What the ad doesn’t tell us is that her palm absorbed some of the lotion before it even touched her skin. What a waste! If you think of how makeup artists dot foundation on the face before blending, so it doesn’t get soaked up into a brush or sponge, the same logic applies.
The next time you apply hand lotion, squeeze it onto the back of your hand and rub the back of your other hand against it. Then spread the lotion out with your palms to finish. You’ll end up delivering the bulk of the product to the part that needs it most and reducing that “greasy palm” feeling.
A lotion like the new Jergens BB Hand Perfecting Hand Cream includes SPF 20 to shield your hands from the sun’s harmful rays and moisturizers to protect the skin. Pearl Powder visibly smooths uneven texture and citrus extracts, Vitamin C and B3, and skin renewing humectants help to fade dark spots.
I told you it was simple, but definitely effective. Try my trick to get the most out of your hand cream application and help improve the look of your hands.
Jergens BB Hand Perfecting Hand Cream is available now at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. For more info, visit Jergens.com.
