The Hands Never Lie

Posted May 20, 2005
Several years ago I read a beauty tip that changed my life: sunscreen should be applied on hands. Some of you might be thinking “duh!” but for me it was a lightbulb moment, because no matter how young you look, as the decades pass, your hands will always give you away. I have a good head start and don’t want to screw it up! There’s just one problem—it’s very hard to find a good sunscreen that comes in a non-gigantic size, thereby satisfying my compulsive need to moisturize constantly, especially during spring and summer. Malin + Goetz gets this and introduced a small-ish (2 ounce) bottle of 30 SPF recently. Besides the fact that it easily fits in my bag, it's also the perfect size for any trip.
