OH MY GOSH...might there be a little relief for aging hands & feet?? I was thrilled to try out iluminage - Skin Rejuvenating Gloves & Socks. Since I've been digging in the dirt from the age of one, I'm willing to try anything that could turn back the clock just a teeny weenie bit. In fact, I'm wearing the gloves and the socks as I'm writing this blog post.

I've worked with my hands my entire life, from gymnastics, cleaning the barn where I kept my horse, swimming, sunning, flight attendant, jewelry making, etc... and they are showing their history, which I'm proud of but I left out the hands, the feet oh yeah... and the NECK! Anyone with me?? After my second week of using the gloves & the socks, I must say I am seeing a bit of softness, and a fewer spots. Here's a look at the technology behind iluminage.

iluminage™ is a luxury beauty brand founded in 2011 by Unilever Ventures. It is the new intelligence in beauty solutions, architects of high-tech, innovative and you can wear them while you're working, sleeping, driving... create your own schedule for turning back the clock.  You'll have relaxation, rejuvenation, and productivity.

Carefully embedded with patented Copper technology, these gloves are clinically proven to reduce the appearance of hand wrinkles and age spots. Improve skin tone and texture, changing the look of your hands in just four weeks. It's nice to know there is another solution besides injecting the hands. I'm not ready for that, for now I'll choose to be deligent about wearing my gloves and socks.

When I was growing up until a few years ago I never thought about the skin on my feet (don't know what I was thinking) It changes right along with the hands...and the neck if you're not moisturizing along with adding sunscreen.  I think I'll try the pillowcase next, I do sleep on a silk pillowcase every night, along with traveling with one (2) in case it disappears, and I know that makes a difference, but the more I learn about copper the more I'm understanding the technology.

- Copper is a well-known essential mineral with skin enhancing properties

- Copper is naturally found in skin and known to play an important role in skin’s renewal process

- Copper has been used in makeup, face creams, and other skincare products for many years

- One of the properties of copper is its ability to promote the natural growth of proteins in the skin.  Copper is a mineral. It is found in many foods, particularly in organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereals, grain products, and cocoa products. The body stores copper mostly in the bones and muscles.

It doesn't make time disappear, but if you're younger than me you can get a head start on turning back the hands of time.
