Use serum before moisturiser for hand care regime too

Most skincare fanatics would know that a serum before a moisturiser is necessary for a complete facial beauty routine. Serums are made to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, while moisturisers seal in the hydration on the skin's surface.

Why not extend that attention to the hands?

Enter this new Aveda Hand Relief Night Renewal Serum, ($59, from Aveda stores) that was launched last month.

Made to be worn at night as you sleep, it is a cocktail of molasses and liquorice extracts to reduce the appearance of spots. A hydrating plant ingredient is added to help plump skin and smooth fine lines.

Layer a handcream over the lightweight serum for best results.
