We’re all about skincare, especially of late, but are you one to actually take your care of your hands? I must admit, I strive to be that person but I often fall short. I consider it a good effort if I remember to apply cuticle oil and hand cream before bed, but most notice I admit, I forget.
With this in mind, I enlisted the knowledge of Enbacci founder and skincare expert, Yong-Li Zhou, to shed some light to how I can adopt a serious #handcare routine, and more importantly – where to even begin.
As Yong-Li Zhou says “Our hands are constantly exposed to environmental pollutants. They are exposed to harmful UV rays while we are walking down the street, driving the car, talking on a phone, and playing most outdoor sports.”
This means that as the skin on the hands and wrists are susceptible to photoaging much like the face (crows-feet anyone) they require the same level of care and attention as the skin on our face. Enbacci have a dedicated hand care range, designed for all skin types, ethnicities, genders and ages; and is available nationwide online and via the brand’s flagship store located in Melbourne’s city fringe.
To cleanse, Yong-Li Zhou suggests Enbaci’s Nourish Hand Wash to effectively clean and disinfect without leaving hands feeling dry, taut, or irritated. This gentle formula repairs damaged skin, restores moisture and offers antimicrobial properties to protect skin from harmful surface bacteria. Once dry, Yong-Li Zhou recommends applying the Brightening Hand & Nail Cream SPF15 to nourish and protect your hands, keeping the skin looking youthful for longer with this Vitamin A and E rich cream.
It’s worth nothing that while freckles on the hands and fingers are not always a cause for concern, they can be a precursor to certain skin conditions and cancers. “Taking the right skincare precautions and having regular check-up’s with your GP or dermatologist will ensure your hands stay youthful and healthy for as long as possible,” said Yong-Li Zhou.
