Hands: they do it all, except take care of themselves.
2020 has got us washing our hands way more often than usual. And although those 20 seconds are essential to guarantee adequate hand sanitation, lathering with soap so frequently and vigorously can be pretty harsh for the delicate skin on your hands. Beyond using a daily lotion (which is a great start), our hands are often the last part of our body to get love. Frequent exposure to the elements and constant handwashing can leave them dry, cracked and uncomfortable. You need a simple routine that'll keep them feeling great.
Start with moisture
Using a hydrating hand cream is a great way to add moisture to tough, overworked skin. Helping Hands works as hard as your magnificent mits to provide soothing comfort with protective shea and cocoa butters that help keep moisture locked in. Keep a pot handy (see what I did there?) so you can easily lather it on after you wash your hands or any time you need a bit of hydration. If soft, soothed hands aren't reason enough, the delicate scent of lavender and marigold won't overpower your senses and will have you coming back for more.
Need something a little thicker? Try Handy Gurugu on for size: it’s lovingly made with cashew, almond and pumpkin seed butters, along with soothing essential oils to moisturize dry, sore hands. It’s our richest hand cream, containing over 25 percent shea butter. The best part? This fabulous cream absorbs easily into skin and leaves your with soft, herbal-scented hands.
Smooth it down
When skin is overworked, protective calluses can develop, creating rough, thick patches on your palms and fingers. The answer? A good scrub. Salted Coconut was made for hands with a blend of exfoliating sea salt to remove excess skin, and a healthy dose of coconut oil so your hands won't dry out. For extra polishing power, apply this one hands when they're dry and then rinse clean with warm water. Don't forget to moisturize after for the ultimate soft hands.
If you're still feeling a little rough around the edges (hangnails, I'm lookin' at you), sometimes the solution is to get heavy. Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is a dream for hands that need all the love they can get. For those tough-to-soften spots, protective beeswax and nourishing avocado oil tackle and soothe broken or dry skin, while an enzyme-rich lemon infusion breaks down the tough areas. It's the only hand tool you need when your job is really hands-on.
