Healthy heels and elbows

As we age, our skin gradually loses its elasticity. I've never been one to 'bother' with any kind of moisturising regime, but as I entered my forties, I noticed that I was developing 'elephant elbows'. The skin was becoming very dry, with a tendency to crack and (eughh) bleed. And my heels were heading the same way.

My good friend Emma recommended I try Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector cream. I did, and it has worked a treat.

Applying a small quantity of it to my elbows and heels after each gym session seems to replace the moisture that my aging body is no longer providing, leaving them pliable and crack-free. Hurrah!
