The way to beautiful hands

Hydrate and protect your hands

Looking for a brightening, hydrating hand cream? Look no longer. Émulsion Mains PIGM 400 has now launched in the UK!

Affecting 90% of people over the age of 50, pigmented spots also known as age spots start to appear on the backs of hands. Also, very exposed to UV rays, hands are more prone to pigmented spots gradually appearing. On another hand, hydration is essential for hand health to resist aggression that can accelerate skin ageing, as the skin there is naturally dry. It is therefore essential to prevent and reduce the appearance of existing spots while hydrating the skin on the hands to preserve their beauty.

To meet the specific problems of pigmented, dehydrated and lipid-deficient Skin Instants®, Biologique Recherche has developed Émulsion Mains PIGM 400, a multipolar cream that is rich in active ingredients, preventing and limiting the appearance of pigmented spots while creating a protective barrier on the skin against external aggressions.

It reduces the pigmentation of brown spots in a targeted way, prevents photo-induced ageing and evens out skin colour. Along with considerably reducing Insensible Water Loss, it participates in driving the skin’s natural lipid-replenishment system.

Émulsion Mains PIGM 400 is thus a complete treatment that will leave the epidermis of your hands lightened, even and protected.

If you are not concerned by pigmentary spots on your hands, our Émulsion Rénovatrice Mains for dehydrated hands is still available. You could also pair the hand cream of your choice with our Masque Gommage Mains for improved results. This intensive hand exfoliator will leave your skin smooth and unified, soften your cuticles, strengthen your nails and reduce skin imperfections.


Give your nails the attention they need

Nails are a big part of your hands’ beauty. What’s good about a manicure is that not only they will reshape and polish your nails (and so make them look much healthier) but also will add a pop of colour! Here is our guide of the best manicures in London.


  1. Cowshed

Located at different key spots in London, including Holland Park and off Carnaby Street, Cowshed is extremely convenient. You will be able to pick your varnish colour from sister brand Cheeky. The Ultimate Cowshed Manicure is a complete hand treatment. Nails are filed, cuticles are nourished. Your hands are exfoliated before they are massaged and then wrapped in a hydrating mask. While the mask works its magic, you will be granted a stress-relieving scalp and shoulder massage. Polish is applied to finish.

Ultimate Cowshed Manicure, £55 for 60 minutes

  1. Aveda Institute

In its large salon and spa in the heart of London, Aveda delivers a number of quality treatments. The serene atmosphere and natural decoration will put you into relaxation mode straight away. Depending on your time and budget, Aveda will create a bespoke manicure for you. The nail work includes buffing, shaping and applying OPI varnishes. Plus, it opens at 8am during the week so you can even pop in before work!
