I am 55 and have brown spots on my left hand (driving side!), along with hang nails, bad cuticles and nails that don’t grow on both hands, so if anyone needs an anti-aging hand cream, it’s me!
Short of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light therapy), I have given up trying to find anything that will alleviate or make all these problems disappear, so when I see a hand cream designated as “anti-aging” – as was the DermaE Anti-Aging Hand Crème
($9.50), I jump on the bandwagon.
I have used and am familiar with Derma-e products, and I like them. I have mainly used their face creams with success, so the hand cream is a first in their line for me. I love the smell – it smells like green tea, and the scent is pleasant and light, not in the least cloying. I love that it is not greasy and soaks right into my skin. I take the elasticity test with all hand creams – I pinched the back of my hands after applying the lotion, and the skin bounced right back. So it maintains the skin’s elasticity, which is a huge plus with a hand cream. To me that means it’s working!
I have read all the ingredients and they’re the big guns-especially the MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane
) that is on the list. I have used the cream now for close to the month required and while I still have brown spots, which I knew would not be less noticeable (I didn’t see any type of hydroquinone in the ingredients list), I have noticed nicer nails – they seem to look a bit healthier around the cuticle area, which is a real treat because I am always struggling to keep them hydrated. The hang nails have not completely disappeared yet, but I feel that with continued use that this cream will make a huge difference in the appearance of my hands. I fully intend to continue using this product long after I’ve finished this tube. Overall, this cream gets a 9 out of 10! The only thing that would’ve made this perfect is if it had worked to lighten brown spots.
