Do you ever stop and check out people’s hands? I have a bit of an obsession with it, I love seeing hands that have lived a life, especially people who work with their hands. There’s nothing more beautiful than Georgia O’Keeffe’s young unmarred hands in this famous Stieglitz photo. But I find hands that have a story to tell are even more interesting. These are the same hands 36 years later at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico.
To me they’re still beautiful and much more powerful. I used to be self-conscious about the veins on my hands when I was younger, but now they just remind me of my dad, who had similar hands. But of course as our hands become more “lived in” we still want them to be as smooth and feel as soft as possible. I came across The Organic Pharmacy’s Ultra Dry Skin Cream, a serious miracle formula that heals and restores dry skin like nobody’s business. You can use it anywhere on the body and it’s gentle enough to use on babies too. Best of all, The Organic Pharmacy is donating proceeds from the sale of every tube of Ultra Dry Skin Cream during the month of October to The Haven Breast Cancer Centers in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I’m a long time fan of this luxurious skin care line–they use the best organic ingredients free from all the toxic ingredients commonly found in mainstream cosmetics and every Organic Pharmacy product that I’ve ever tried has performed amazingly.
What are your thoughts about hands and how do you take care of yours?
