It's a known fact that the hands are the first tell for someone's true age. We constantly use our hands, and it impacts the way they look and feel. Therefore, using hand creams is vital for soft, smooth and healthy looking hands. Soap and water do take care of germs and bacteria; however they tend to cause dryness. Hence, a good moisturizing hand cream should be used daily, especially after washing your hands, to prevent any dry, patchy and irritated skin.
