Pop quiz: How many times have you washed your hands this year? (Doesn’t it feel like the answer is probably close to a million?) At first, all that frequent washing meant a lot of dry, scaly skin and ragged cuticles. But these past few months, L’Occitane hand care products have been a lifesaver.
L’Occitane (pronounced LOX-EE-TAHN) was born in the markets of Provence, where a twenty-three-year-old plant enthusiast named Olivier distilled and sold his own rosemary oil from a small truck. Eventually, he expanded his offerings to include soaps and creams, always drawing inspiration from the scents, ingredients, and natural beauty of the South of France.
Every one of their products is carefully considered, from the texture to the scent, to be both enjoyable and beneficial. Their hand soaps are super gentle on skin, while still effective at killing germs. My hands actually feel softer after I wash them.
With all the frequent washing, I’ve also made hand care a part of my nighttime ritual. I start with Shea Nourishing Nail and Cuticle Oil, which you just brush on and massage for a few seconds. I top it off with Shea Butter Hand Cream, which I swear by. It’s made with 20% organic shea butter, honey, almond extracts, and coconut oil, which is just as rich and creamy as it sounds. Their products smell amazing, and I love waking up to hands that feel soft and moisturized.
