I never really thought about hands “having a glow”; we don’t necessarily think about how “old” or “tired” our hands look. We just do with them what needs to be done and our hands will sometimes show fatigue and age, just like our faces. But we don’t always think about giving our hands a well-deserved treatment – a “picker-upper”, so-to-speak. I recently discovered the Peter Lamas “Spa Sensuals” collection, which includes a divine 2-part hand treatment that consists of a hand scrub and a hand cream. These two products are both made from quality, natural and non-toxic ingredients, that are extremely beneficial to our skin, through their anti-aging, protective, and moisturizing properties. The formulas also smell amazing – a really nice, refreshing, orange-citrus scent!
I was very pleased with the literal glow my hands exerted after giving myself this at-home spa treatment. The scrub is rather heavy-duty! The sea salt crystals that compromise the main “scrub” ingredient definitely exfoliate very well, but without scratching the skin, due to the high level of natural oils also present in the formula. The exfoliation removed dead skin cells, revealing fresh, smooth cells underneath, therefore allowing the hands to exude a youthful glow. The oils present in the scrub also penetrate the skin of the hands directly into the newly exposed fresh skin cells. Once scrubbing is complete and washed off, the wonderfully absorbent and hydrating hand cream is applied to seal in the benefits of the scrub treatment. Both hands and nails look fantastic, fresh and rejuvenated after this amazing treatment.
Gentle scrubbing and massaging is known to increase circulation, which is an aid to anti-aging, so even without being a dermatologist, I’m quite confident that this treatment, if applied somewhat regularly, would in fact be beneficial for long-term age prevention for the hands (which Peter Lamas claims in promoting the product). In either case, even with one use, your hands will feel like you just returned from an expensive manicure at a spa. This is definitely a hand treat worth splurging on!
