Here’s why your hands need some TLC
We’re writing, typing, cooking, exercising, cleaning, and doing just about everything else with our hands. Considering how our hands are our everyday tools, it is surprising how so many of us tend to neglect our ever-working hands. Moreover, with a pandemic underway, we wash and sanitize our hands more than ever. Experts recommend washing our hands for at least 20 seconds or using sanitizers with over 70% alcohol content.
When we wash and sanitize our hands frequently, we are stripping the skin of oil and moisture. This results in dry, chapped hands, and in severe cases, flakes and cracks. You may not realize it, but the cracks can increase the risk of infection and also lead to other skin conditions such as eczema. This is why it’s important to remember that it’s not just your face that ages and needs moisturization; your hands need some working hands lotion and regular TLC too.
Make it a habit to lather on some luxury hand cream or working hands lotion every time you wash your hands to lock in the moisture. Made from a blend of coconut oil, almond oil, and shea butter, our Vetiver and Lavender Upayas Hand Lotion is the best hand cream for dry hands. Our natural hand cream deeply moisturizes your hand, leaving them soft, supple, and hydrated. Enriched with lavender vetiver root oil, its light aroma will calm your senses while its antioxidant properties heal your damaged skin. The presence of coconut oil also soothes any existing skin conditions, making it the best hand cream out there.
Regular moisturizing can not only protect your working hands but also prevent premature aging and sun damage. So, when you’re buying a natural hand cream, choose a product that has nourishing ingredients like vitamin E, shea butter, glycerine, along with some SPF. However, for usage during the day, pick something that is light and easily absorbed by your skin. You don’t want your hands to be greasy when you are out and about, do you?
Meanwhile, at night you can afford to go for a hand and body lotion that is heavier and moisturizes the skin from deep within. Don’t forget to pay attention to your nails and cuticles. You can massage your nails with hand and nail cream to keep them healthy and moisturized.
Keeping a bottle or tube of hand and body lotion on your bedside table can work as a reminder for you to moisturize every night before you hit the bed. And when you’re out, you can carry a travel-friendly natural hand cream tube in your bag. With regular use, you can delay your hands from aging prematurely, leaving them nourished and moisturized.
