You only have to look at Madonna and Sarah Jessica Parker, and the beauty ‘proverb’ – that it is your hands that show your age – is proved true. Don’t make their mistake and treat yourself to some hand cream. Try Kenzoki Sensual Hand Balm ($48), which contains the moisturising white lupin – one of the world’s earliest flowers cultivated by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians – and also, okoumyrrhine, a plant extract, that helps to strengthen nails and soothe sensitive skin.
