The transition from autumn to winter can be tough especially on the hands at this time of the year.
Although we’ve only stepped into the autumn season, but the combination of central heating, cold air and rain can really cause some serious havoc on the skin. Autumn is really the best time to start caring for your skin, take some quality time out for yourself and give your hands and body its much needed TLC.
I find that once the weather gets chillier and with the central heating in full swing, the battle of the two causes much distress to the skin, leaving it dry, sore and irritable.
Your poor hands go through a lot in a day, they are exposed to the extreme cold weather, the drying effects of central heating and constant washing can zap the moisture from them!
I feel we usually neglect the hands and focus more on the face in our beauty regimes. Hands suffer the worst when it comes to colder weather and today I will be giving you a helping hand (no pun intended) on how to care for your hands for when the winter strikes!
With this in mind, I’d like to talk a little about this beautifully boxed hand care set by Molton Brown.
Who hasn’t heard of Molton Brown right?
Molton Brown has built a reputation of being London’s bath, body and beauty connoisseurs. Their products contain a blend of exotic ingredients with a touch of London eccentricity for bright colours that stand out on the shelf.
I have used Molton Brown products alongside L’Occitane and Crabtree & Evelyn for the longest time now. I adore these brands as not only do they smell amazing but they are ever so nourishing and hydrating on the skin.
The set includes:

40ml Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Hand Cream
40ml Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea Hand Cream
