Video: We Don't Hide Our Hands: An Overview Of The Autumn-winter Novelties And Bestsellers
Hand cream is a basic thing, perhaps one of the few that most people use - even those who do not like complicated care too much. Not surprisingly, almost every beauty brand, even one that specializes in decorative cosmetics, strives to launch this product.
If in the summer you can forget about leaving for a while (and we will have nothing for it), then with the onset of cold weather the main problems of the autumn-winter season return - dryness and peeling of the skin of the hands. Creams for this season have several important features: more fatty and nutritious components, vitamins appear in the composition and, as a rule, there is an additional protection function that covers the skin with a thinnest layer and protects from low temperatures, wind or bright sun (remember about ski resorts). Moisturizing components, on the contrary, fade into the background, since moisture in the skin in the cold is harmful. Let's see what new items and basic products the brands offer us this season. Hand creamsFor several years now, the bestsellers of the season have been creams of the L'Occitane and The Body Shop brands - the former with 20% shea butter for dry skin, the latter - the famous hemp cream for very dry skin, which is more like a butter in texture. From the new - a line of creams with shea butter, with aromas of strawberry, peach and other fruit-berries that The Body Shop has in the main series.
In the mass market series, you can find products that do the job just as well. Nivea has a complex hand cream with vitamin E and sea buckthorn and a universal classic - the blue jar, which celebrated its centenary. This year, especially for Russia, it was released in a limited edition with images of a snowman and a family on skates. Neutrogena Norwegian Forumla has already become a classic - it's hard to imagine, but this modern cream is based on the formulation of ointments that Norwegian sailors used during their voyages in the middle of the last (20th) century. In the hand series there is a cream with and without scent, which is quite rare on the market. Le Petite Marseillais Shea Butter Cream is designed for very dry skin, but has a light texture that does not leave a greasy film.
In the main series Yes To there is a cream for intensive restoration of hand skin with soy proteins, and in the special line Natura Siberica - a protective cream based on wild herbs of Siberia. At Korres, look for a basic daily care cream with organic almond and calendula oil.
Cuticle Care The key care for dry cuticles is oil or wax, and the denser the better. The base products of the professional brands Orly and CND are brush oils that care for the cuticle and strengthen the nail plate. L'Occitane butter with 30% shea content in a handy package with a brush also has an undeniable advantage - a smell that drives many crazy.
Two more bestsellers that all fans of the perfect manicure are familiar with are the aromatic Burt's Bees wax, which is not so easy to buy in Russia, and the more affordable Lemon Sensation cream butter from Lush.
Additional care When hand cream and cuticle oil fully cope with their task, but want more, special care is used, namely hand and cuticle scrubs, which gently polish the skin and remove peeling. As a rule, all scrubs are "quick" - they do not need to be kept for a long time, and the effect is achieved immediately. From the popular - L'Occitane minute scrubs with the same shea butter and Bath & Body Works with sugar.
