Step One: Washing with the Right Products
If you have dry skin, use a product with humectants or ceramides to keep you from drying out. Sensitive and normal skin can benefit from a gentle cleanser without fragrance or harsh ingredients. Antibacterial soaps can cause dryness so avoid them if you are likely to crack or look parched.
Step Two: Exfoliate
Exfoliation will help keep your body looking young and feeling soft. Use a gentle scrub once a week to exfoliate yourself of dead skin cells. You can easily make a scrub with things you have in your pantries such as coconut oil, honey, sea salt, brown sugar or lemon. Mix the ingredients together then rub over your hands to exfoliate and smooth, then wash off with warm water to reveal baby soft hands. Alternatively, check out Scubz of London for your ready fix.
Step Three: Use a Dark Spot Corrector
If you have dark spots, you can use a dark spot corrector to help reduce their appearance. Select one with antioxidants such as Vitamin C or retinol. Over time and with consistent usage, this product will brighten your skin and make it look more youthful. Dr Shea contains natural vitamins and minerals that aid the removal of dark spots.
Step Four: Moisturize

Look out for creams and lotions with ingredients like tea tree, resveratrol, vitamin E or retinol to help brighten, smooth and protect your skin.
Step five: SPF
Sun exposure is the number one cause of skin aging so you need to protect yourself using the right products. If you’re going to be spending time in the sun use a product with at least SPF 15 to prevent dark spots and sun damage. Your hands will look young and healthy longer. Shea butter has a natural UV filter, up to, 10 (SPF10). Combine Dr Shea with your sunscreen lotion for the ultimate protection
