Just yesterday, Victoria Beckham, 45, took to her Instagram stories to share one of her favourite moisturisers with her fans in an effort to prolong her tan - the Waleda Skin Food.
Interestingly, what we noticed was just how much attention she paid to applying the moisturiser to her hands - it's no surprise that they are yet to have a wrinkle or age spot in sight.
As we age, our hands lose moisture in the same way the rest of our body does and they're exposed to the elements as much as our face. With this in mind, to avoid premature ageing, the old adage really does stand - moisturising is key. Whether you like your hand creams gentle and nourishing or formulas as high tech as your face regimen, these are the age reversing hand creams to partner with your manicures this autumn...
Best anti-ageing hand cream
It's no secret that retinol is one of the prized ingredients for attaining a more youthful complexion - and the skin on your hands should be no different. Consider this cream if you're really wanting to manage the effects of skin ageing and, as you would when applying retinol to your face, be sure to apply an SPF on top of this to remedy sensitivity and damage from the sun.
Best luxury hand cream
As luxurious as this cream looks, the contents are also a treat for your hands. Formulated with natural liquorice extract, botanical alfalfa concentrate (an antioxidant) and jojoba, skin is left noticeably brighter, nourished and soothed. It's Zesty scent is also a refreshing bonus and subtly perfumes the skin.
The best hand cream for damaged nails and hands
Containing ingredients such as Biosaccharide solution and Chestnut extract to retain moisture in the skin, this cream is more of a treatment for the hands that works to restore moisture and to give suppleness back to the skin on the hands and the nails. After extended use, cuticles are softened and skin is more nourished.
The best hand cream for dry skin
Fed up of constantly applying a cream but still having dry hands? You need L'Occitane's Shea Butter formula. It's super-nourishing and miraculously doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy or slippery. It's no surprise it's one of the brand's best sellers.
Best budget hand cream
Q10 (the energy enzyme naturally found in our skin) works to neutralise free radical damage and combat signs of ageing. If you're not keen on heavy textures on your hands, this is light enough, but that doesn't mean it's not hard at work - UV filters also protect your hands from damaging rays so you're less likely to develop age spots.
Best hand cream for sensitive skin
This is salvation for sensitive skin. Free from perfume and chemicals that can often triggers inflamed skin, this hand cream also contains an oat-based colloidal treatment that repairs dry skin and eases itchiness while forming a protective barrier against daily environmental elements. All that without the greasiness too.
