The Difference between Hand Cream & Foot Cream
January 25, 2013

Are you guilty of using the same cream or lotion all over your body? The skin is the largest organ we have and not all of it is created equal! Just like it is important to know your skin type on your face to effectively treat it, so is it important to understand the needs of the rest of your body.

The thick of it: The skin on the soles of the feet is much thicker than on the rest of the body – up to 1.4mm! It actually has an extra layer of skin to help endure the daily wear and tear of walking around in stilettos, going for jogs at the gym or just simply standing on them. This barrier is important to keep in tack (foot razors are a no-no!) – but dry, cracked feet can be a war-zone of bacteria if not properly cared for.

The Repêchage Sea Spa Foot Cream helps to keep feet soft and smooth without breaking down your feet’s natural defenses. Moisture-binding seaweed helps keep feet soft while tea tree, lemon, rosemary and mint oils provide antiseptic and anti-microbial properties to help keep feet clear of trouble-causing bacteria. Plus, we added horse chestnut to help improve circulation to help give tired feet a break.

So why not use the same cream on your hands? Hands have their own list of wants and needs, which are very often ignored. Many will spend hundreds of dollars on anti-aging products for their face, only to be exposed by the look of their hands. Hands naturally have thinner skin and less fat than say your face and neck. This can make them look gaunt, thus older, if not properly cared for. On top of that, your hands are constantly being exposed to the sun and elements making them dryer, hyper-pigmented and older-looking faster.

Repêchage Sea Spa Hand Cream is formulated specially to meet the needs of the hands. Laminaria Digitata & Ascophyllum Nodosum seaweeds help to maintain moisture while helping with cell turn-over – an essential piece to the anti-aging puzzle. Shea butter helps to soften the skin and even out discoloration. Particularly valuable for those with dry, irritated hands, chamomile acts as a skin soother. This luxuriously smooth, non-greasy, antioxidant-rich formula not only helps protects and helps heal hands, it also helps to prevent premature aging.

So ditch the one-size-fits all cream and stock-up on targeted skin care for beautiful, touchable skin from head to toe.
