How and when to apply hand cream during the day
When this water evaporates, it creates an opportunity for transepidermal water loss1, a phenomenon in which water literally evaporates from the epidermis into the air around you. Perhaps not surprisingly, your skin will feel even drier than before, especially if you wash it off with hot water, which evaporates faster.
Her ideal time is anything under two minutes. Instead of setting a stopwatch, just have the cream on hand and apply it as quickly as possible. “I always carry a hand moisturizer and apply it right after washing or sanitizing my hands during the day,” Bowe says.
I’m a fan of mindbodygreen’s post-biotic hand cream, perhaps unsurprisingly. But I wouldn’t use (or do!) if it was bad.
This formula supports the skin barrier, hydrates you and helps with the appearance of fine lines. All this thanks to an innovative mixture of antioxidants, lipids and biotic ingredients.
It contains biotechnological pre- and postbiotics that have been shown to improve skin elasticity, help prevent and reduce wrinkles, and support the regeneration of the epidermal framework. That’s not all: it contains wrinkle-reducing coenzyme Q10 for antioxidant support and a wide range of plant extracts for extra skin support.
The base is a deeply moisturizing blend of shea butter, oat oil, aloe and cold-pressed moringa seed oil. I’d be remiss not to highlight the extra texture: this whipped, thick hand cream that’s the perfect balance between thick and non-greasy.
