Keeping your hands clean without drying them out
While we're all washing our hands more than ever, this inevitably leads to dry, chapped skin and nails.
Here are 5 tips and products for keeping your hands clean and nourished during COVID19 and beyond.
1. Use an intensive hand cream
Here are a few we love:
2. Wear gloves
Wearing gloves in the Winter shields your hands from cold, dry wind which can further damage the skin.
PRO TIP: Purchase a pair of gloves that have a 'touch screen' feature so that you can continue to use your phone while you wear them.
3. Nourish those nails!
Using a polish that strengthens your nails as a base coat is a game changer.
We love the Revitanail Intensive Strength Nail Strengthener with Calcium.
4. Apply hand cream before bed
Applying hand cream during the day is great but it doesn't have a whole lot of time to absorb when we're washing our hands frequently. Apply a generous amount just before you go to sleep so it has time to do its magic.
5. KEEP WASHING!
You may be tempted to give your hands a break if they start to dry out but this isn't the time to become complacent. Here are some of quality, anti-bacterial soaps and hand sanitisers.
