How do I treat brown spots on my hands ?

Brown spots are caused by the sun’s UV rays. To avoid their appearance or accentuation, limit exposure to sun, moisturize your hands regularly to strengthen the skin and use a high index anti-UV spray to block UV rays.

The white tea antioxidant in our VolupTHE hand cream will help to slow skin aging. Nutrition can also help, with a diet rich in antioxidants (red fruits and green vegetables), and natural  anti-inflammatories from the so-called fatty fish and avocado. If you have any questions, ask your dermatologist.

Which cream should I use to moisturize my hands?

First of all, it is important to moisturize your body properly. Did you know that drinking the right amount of water every day (minimum 2 litres) will help to prevent dry feet and hands?

The oil-free, very light and moisturizing formula of VolupThé contains White Tea extract, offering antioxidant properties and amino acids to synthesize the collagen of the epidermis.

Used daily, it helps prevent hands feeling dry and maintains suppleness and beauty.

White Tea extract is very rich in active molecules, with more powerful antioxidant properties than vitamins E and C. It protects the skin from free radicals in UV rays.

Amino acid synthesizes the skin’s collagen and thus its mechanical structure; it helps reduce the development of wrinkles by protecting the fibres of the skin (collagen and elastin). Babassu butter comes from an Amazonian palm tree. The oil which is extracted from its nuts contains unsaturated fatty acids with highly nutritious and protective properties.

Cotton oil, rich in “linoleic” acids, softens, regenerates and soothes the epidermis. Allantoïn is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
