We’re now at a point where most of us are staying indoors if we’re able, and handwashing seems to be something we do more than anything else. Of course, constantly using soaps to wash our hands is going to leave them dry and cracked in the long run, so we’ve put together a list of products which can help to care for and nourish your hands at this difficult time:
Using a good moisturiser is the key to making sure that your hands don’t dry out, with all of the extra washing. Nailtiques Cuticle and Skin Gel is formulated to help with dry, cracked cuticles. It can also be used on other parts of the body that need extra hydration, making it perfect for use on your hands to stop them from drying out.
Another option for keeping your hands supple and hydrated is this hand and nail cream from Elemis. Its luxurious silicon-free texture, quickly absorbs to instantly rejuvenate hands and condition nails, while milk protein, avellana seed oil, rare anti-ageing omega 7, camellia, Virgin plum and macadamia forms a silky barrier that locks in moisture.
The cuticles are an area which are particularly susceptible to dryness, which is why Nailtiques developed this oil treatment. This 3-in-1 oil will rehydrate the cuticle, rapidly moisturise the nail plate when applied to the naked nail, and will also act as a quick dry when applied over Nailtiques formulas and coloured polish.
Aside from needing to moisturise regularly, it’s also important to use a gentle wash to keep your hands clean but nourished. This body was from Dermalogica can be used on the hands and cleanses while helping to maintain lipid barrier health. It contains pro-vitamin B5 and tranquil sandalwood, lavender and clary sage to smooth and condition the skin.
This hand conditioner from Nailtiques contains pure aloe, jojoba oil, glycerine and natural soluble collage to deeply nourish and moisturise your hands. This clever cream softens the skin of the hands without softening your nails, allowing your skin to be supple but your nails to stay strong.
