I Wanna Hold Your Hand!
I used to know this man…actually I knew him very well (a five year long relationship to be exact!) but he would always kind of hurt my feelings about how my hands looked much older than my face and body did. I’m not even sure if he knew how hurtful it was because he hated his own hands and he commented on everyone else’s hands as well. It was actually kind of odd. If it would have been feet, I could almost understand because unkempt feet can look atrocious, though not necessarily old. Although, on the other hand a foot fetish is kind of odd to me as well. But this was the first hand fetish I think I had ever witnessed. I seriously think he would have cheated on me if he had ever met a professional hand model!
I definitely tried to keep good care of my hands because I’ve always been into skin care both personally and professionally. However, recently I learned that great hand creams alone might not be the end all solution. In order to have younger looking, softer and peaches and cream skin on your hands they need to be a little more aggressively exfoliated for this to be achieved. That’s what I learned by using my Personal Microderm Tool on the backs of my hands a few weeks back. And oh what a difference a tool makes! My hands look so good I’ve got a good mind to buy a plane ticket to go back up North and have him pick me up from the airport sporting the most gorgeous set of hands he had ever seen! Well at least I’m assuming he never found the hands of his dreams…lol.
And to seal the deal (so to speak) after the Personal Microderm treatment I treated myself to a professional manicure and I faithfully started using Thalgo Youthful Hand Cream. It’s magnificent and has transformed them into soft hold-able hands! It’s one of those hand creams that actually forms an invisible pair of velvety feeling (silicone) gloves which seals away dehydration and prevents further damage resulting in extremely soft, youthful hands. And conversely, it seals in the wonderful hydration and nutrients that it infuses deeply into the skin and does so the instant you apply it. Oh, and the bonus (as if it needed another one!) is that it has the most refreshing lemon-lime scent that is just as lovely as can be!
