Fresh For Spring: A New Formula For Healthy Hands

merlot skin care hand cream

Every day our hands touch hundreds of things – cell phones, keys, computers – all of which carry germs. To help keep these germs at bay Merlot Skin Care, the best-selling natural grape seed-based skin care brand, has released a new and improved formula for its Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer.

Unlike sanitizers that can leave hands feeling sticky or dry, Merlot Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer is a unique ultra-moisturizing lotion. The formula works to eliminate germs while softening skin, leaving hands feeling soft and healthy. While constantly washing your hands can leave skin dry and cracked, Merlot Hand Cream does double-duty – sanitizing while also providing a deep level of moisture.

Merlot’s Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer goes one step further, helping hands not only stay healthy, but look healthy too. “Our hands show our true age,” says Wayne Beckley, founder of Merlot Skin Care, “Merlot’s Hand Cream not only keeps skin soft, but it also works to fade age spots and keep hands looking younger.”

Utilizing aloe, matricaria flower, and grape seed extract Merlot Hand Cream soothes and protects skin with natural antioxidants and SPF, blocking damaging free radicals.

Merlot Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer retails for $10.00 at

The biggest secret to youthful-looking skin: Hydration

woman washing face, water, merlot skin care

At the beginning of every new year there’s a push to de-toxify and de-stress. One of the keys to de-toxifying is also one of the biggest secrets to youthful-looking skin: hydration.

Drink those eight glasses

While how much water we need depends on where we live and how active we are, the classic eight glasses a day is a good jumping off point. To make sure you get enough H20, keep a re-fillable water bottle on your desk and keep it filled throughout the day. Drink one bottle in the morning, one at lunch, and one in the afternoon.

Remix your diet

Certain foods can also help keep up our hydration levels. Spinach, watermelon, and other fruits and vegetables can be great sources of water. Easily add in a spinach salad to your lunch or dinner.

Hydrate while you sleep

Overnight, our bodies lose water through respiration (exhaling) and transpiration (sweating). To keep skin hydrated, consider adding a night cream into your daily routine. Dry, dehydrated skin can be more prone to show lines and wrinkles, while moisturized skin helps maintain your youthful look.

Raise a glass – of water!

3 Beauty Resolutions To Make In 2015

woman, new years resolutions, beauty, merlot skin care, grape seed

With just a few days before a brand new year, it’s a great time to make a few beauty resolutions for 2015.

  • Evaluate Your Daily Routine – The new year is a great time to take a look at the things you do to look and feel your best each day. We can all fall into certain habits – forgetting to wash our face before bed, neglecting to put on sunscreen, not drinking enough water – but we can take stock of these and make some changes to feel even better in the future. Take a minute to write down how you start and end each day, and one small change you could make, like drinking an extra glass of water.
  • Give Your Skin The One Thing It Needs – There’s usually one thing more than anything else that our skin is calling out for. For those of us with dry skin, it’s extra moisturizer. For those of us with thinner skin, it’s an extra dose of collagen. Does your skin feel overly dry? Are dark under-eye circles routinely a problem? Assess what your skin might be the most in need of and add in a product solution to your daily routine.
  • Say No To Sun Spots – While the sun can seem like our best friend, especially while we’re logging ski or beach time, it can really take a toll on our skin and contribute to premature aging. Make sure that your daily moisturizer has an SPF, and don’t forget to apply it to your hands as well as your face. To decrease the look of sun spots, keep an eye out for products like Merlot’s Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer, which can help fade already-established dark spots.

Just a few simple changes can have a big impact on how we feel each day. Start the new year off by looking and feeling better than ever.
