Most of us are washing our hands and applying sanitizer excessively during these days to reduce the spread of virus. But the constant washing and use of drying alcohol-based formulas strip your hands of moisture and drain the skin’s natural protective barrier. This leaves you with dry, sore, and cracked hands - and makes it important to give your hands a little extra love!
Let’s guide you through our first-aid tips for dry hands! 🖤💦
Swap it! Use hand scrub instead of regular soap.
When using regular hand soap over and over again, you strip your hands of moisture. To avoid this, we recommend that you swap your normal hand soap with our 2in1 hand scrub + wash
. Our hand scrub is infused with nourishing oils, coffee powder, and glycerin that will leave your hands soft and hydrated. It even improves your skin’s ability to absorb lotion afterward.
During these times, we recommend that you use our hand scrub 2 times a week. You can use it after hand washing, as a treatment for your hands, or by swapping your regular soap with our scrub. Apply a small amount on your palms and start scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Avoid using soap afterward, since this will remove the nourishing oils from the scrub.
Drop it… and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
After drying your hands, it’s time for moisturizer. In fact, keep a hand cream near you and remember to soothe those hands throughout the day. Apply a generous layer of hand cream to keep them nourished and hydrated. We recommend that you apply your hand cream after each hand wash.
For extra hydration, add a few drops of oil or moisturizing serum to your hand cream. By applying drops of our hydra calm face serum
, you’ll elevate the skin’s hydration level, reduce moisture loss, and give your hands an extra moisture boost.
Not a fan of the greasy feeling?
We get that slippery fingers, and everyday tasks aren’t exactly the best combination. To avoid this, only apply the cream to the back of your hands.
Wrap it! Intense DIY mask for your hands.
Apply a good layer of rich cream to your hands. If you have a cure made especially for cracked hands, put some of that on. Apply a pair of cotton gloves. (If you don’t have any lying around, cotton socks work great as well...but we admit, it’s a bit more complicated, and recommend that you finish all your regular pre-bedtime routines beforehand). When your hands are wrapped up, it’s time for bed. And as you’re getting your beauty sleep, your DIY intense-hand-mask will seal the moisture, letting your cream penetrate your skin much more intensively.
