PCA Skin, C&E Hand Renewal, £56 (29.5ml), PCA Skin
Like our face, our hands are under constant external attack from aggressors like ultraviolet radiation, ozone, and urban pollution.
Antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E can mitigate the long-term damage caused by these factors, resulting in healthier skin as we age. Described by the brand as an “invisible glove for the hand,” PCA Skin’s C&E Hand Renewal cream relies on vitamin C to promote collagen production, which has the potential to thicken the dermis, diminish fine lines, and is essential for firm, youthful skin. On top of that, vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure.
Furthermore, it also inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance. Finally, vitamin C helps to repair damage from sun exposure and collagen loss by encouraging healthy cell turnover and regeneration. Additional anti-ageing ingredients help to increase cellular turnover and reduce inflammation and emollients moisturise and hydrate hands.
