It's so important to look after your hands. Like our face, our hands are exposed all the time to the environmental stressor; sun, water, pollution etc.

.

These factors cause pigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and thinning skin.

Just like after washing your face you would not forget to put on your moisturiser so you should be doing the same to your hands. As the skin on top of our hands has less sebaceous glands, they will dry out faster.

One of my top tips is to apply SPF to the back of your hands every day even winter months, or mix it in with your hand cream.

Even when driving your hands are exposed to the sun. Aside from sun, the cold can also affect the skin. This can also result in dry air that can draw moisture away from the skin. Harsh winter weather and dry indoor heat can lead to cracked skin. Eczema and psoriasis may also flare up during these cold dry months. The best advice is to apply a good hand cream every day especially every time you wash your hands.

Applying hand cream isn't just hydrating, it can also be very comforting. It can increase the circulation and elasticity, and it puts a glow in your skin. It can help with arthritis by easing sore joints from the improved circulation. Even if you're in a waiting queue for a coffee you can be doing it. Hand creams are usually small, so can fit in your hand bag quite easily.

In the salon a paraffin hand treatment/manicure is a fantastic way to improve skin's texture and elasticity and your hands will feel amazing. If you have any questions call Jill on 064 6632966.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
