Your hands can give your age away! With handwashing taking centre-stage during the Covid-19 crisis, it has never been more important to take care of them.
Chapped, dry hands can be a consequence of frequent washing – unfortunately, an essential chore during these difficult times. But there are plenty of excellent products on the market to ensure your hands stay supple and moisturised throughout the crisis.
We’ve put together some real treats. They won’t just take care of that raw skin, they will give you a lift too.
Hand Care Gift Sets and More
We have to start our recommendations with this stunning duo. The Baylis & Harding Royale Garden Verbena And Chamomile Giftset
promises a touch of luxury at your fingertips. Offering a cleanser and a moisturiser, it is suitable for vegans and is not tested on animals. What’s more, it boasts the beautiful fragrance of Verbena and Chamomile.
A cracking mini hand salve is included in Burt’s Bees Burt’s Essential Edit
. We love this kit. It contains five travel-size products that promise to moisture you from head to toes – and for under £12, we think it’s a bargain.
Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Cream
is a heavy duty, yet fragrance-free option for those who have to avoid irritants on their skin. This is important for those who are sensitive to fragrances or who may have had a mastectomy and need to keep their hands and arms clean and moisturised.
How To Protect Your Hands
You can limit the damage to hands by ensuring you always wear gloves when washing up and gardening. Don’t overlook this often neglected part of the body when you venture out in cold weather – wear mittens.
