Some ways to improve the condition of your hand skin. Brand expert - cosmetologist Justyna Gałat

Introducing Justyna Gałat - handy lab brand EXPERTS. ✋ A cosmetologist who creates individual treatment therapies in her work and strives to educate patients on the importance of a holistic approach to care, including hand care.

She often says that "the state of our skin is a reflection of the state of the body, so it's important to take care of all the side aspects". 💆 In our joint series, Justyna will be talking about holistic hand care and how to put it into practice in a simple way. 


Hand care is an extremely important yet often overlooked part of the daily skincare routine. It is often tempting to say that most creams or active substances,
successfully applied to the face or neck area, will do just as well in hand skin care. So why are these areas still so strongly demarcated?

Below I share with you my ways to improve the skin condition of our hands:

  1. Ensure UV protection

UV radiation is one of the main sources of photo-ageing and pigmented changes in the skin. Even if the tendency to hyperpigmentation is a matter of genetics, we can still delay or minimise the risk of their formation through proper UV protection. This is especially true for those who regularly exfoliate their hands or use acids with photosensitising potential. The risk of increased skin photosensitivity even increases when drinking certain herbal teas, such as St. John's wort. It is worth bearing this in mind, especially in summer!

  • Regularly exfoliate calloused skin, including with acids

Exfoliation of the skin is a great ally in the fight to improve the condition of the skin, even out its colour or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Regular removal of dead skin cells also has a positive effect on the absorption of active ingredients from the creams or masks we use. There is no denying that there is nothing worse than well-groomed nails accompanied by dry and "ragged" cuticles.

Of the home remedies, a gentle exfoliation created from sugar with honey or olive oil will work wonderfully. Both products contain beneficial properties that help the skin visibly regain its radiance and smoothness.

  • Retinol - an anti-age treatment for our hands

Is retinol an active ingredient intended only for use on the face? You probably hear this most often, but it is a substance with a much broader spectrum of action. Indeed, retinol shows great results in anti-age treatments or in the elimination of hyperpigmentation. It also performs excellently in duo with vitamin C, contributing to a strong brightening of the skin, as well as delaying the ageing process. It is a powerful antioxidant duo that benefits the cell renewal cycle. When used regularly on the hand area, it will result not only in an improved appearance, but also in much better skin condition in the treatment areas.

  • Grease and moisturise

Hydrating and moisturising are, in spite of appearances, two different yet perfectly complementary features of the Hyaluronic Acid Mask. The hyaluronic acid present in it perfectly moisturises the skin, contributing to an improvement in skin condition, while the macadamia oil closes the whole, thus creating an occlusion. Macadamia oil also exhibits beneficial properties such as skin irritation reduction, anti-ageing and antioxidant effects.

  •   Occlusion, occlusion!

I mention it when writing about macadamia oil, but what exactly is it? Occlusion prevents the evaporation of active ingredients from the skin's surface. It promotes better absorption of products into our skin and enhances the final effect of skincare treatments. There is nothing better than a 20-minute relaxation with candlelight, music or meditation, combined with an express and highly effective treatment from Handy Lab.
