Hand and foot care products encompass a wide range of items designed to maintain the health, hygiene, and appearance of these often-neglected body parts. These products cater to various needs, from moisturizing and protecting to addressing specific issues like dryness, calluses, and nail concerns.
Here are the main categories of hand and foot care products:

11. Sunscreen and UV Protection: Hand creams and lotions with added sunscreen help protect the skin on the hands from the harmful effects of UV radiation, which can lead to premature aging and sun damage.
