Happy Hands

With the cold winter weather and holiday cooking and cleaning, I notice that my hands are even drier than usual and that I have been using my hand cream more often. I was very excited to find a new bottle of my favorite lotion under the Christmas tree a few weeks ago. Every time I pump out a handful of Cucina hand cream made by the Canadian Fruits and Passion, it makes me smile. Cucina lotions contain three olive tree extracts which help regenerate skin and improve its elasticity. First-cold-pressed olive oil and olive unsaponifiables moisturize and protect cooks’ damaged hands. In addition, olive leaf extract stimulates the skin and helps to heal minor cuts and burns. The best part is this lotion smells delicious and does not interfere with the flavor of foods because they contain the same ingredients that are in your favorite food dishes. There are seven different fragrances of which I have tried Coriander and Olive Tree, Sicilian Lemon and Ginger, and Lime Zest and Cypress. Coriander and Olive Tree is my personal favorite, but all them are truly yummy!
