Top tips to combat hand dryness after washing
As Covid-19 continually spreads globally, health care officials have emphasised washing one’s hands as often as you can. From continually washing your hands your skin can become dry, irritated and sore. Here are some of our tips on attempting to combat dry skin on your hands.
#1 Wash with a nutrient-enriched hand wash and soap.
We recommend to try combat dryness in the first place to wash with a moisturising hand wash. Green Angel seaweed hand wash and hand soap contain a bundle of vitamins and minerals from ingredients like seaweed, neroli and mandarin.
The four types of nutrient-rich organic seaweeds used contain vital trace elements, vitamins and minerals. These along with organic Lavender, Mandarin, precious Neroli essential oil and Omega 3 Plant Oils make it a phenomenally rich soap which is very calming and soothing. All combined these indulgent ingredients help to hydrate, rejuvenate and restore damaged skin cells.
Furthermore, the presence of seaweed in our bar of soap help to naturally and gently exfoliate the skin, helping to give a deep clean.
#2 After washing, apply hand cream.
After washing your hands for more than 20 seconds with warm water and soap, pat dry with a clean towel. With a small amount of moisture left from the water, apply your hand cream of choice. This allows extra moisturise to stay in the skin. Repeat this step as often as required.
There are a few products we would recommend for this step, each ranges from how dry your skin is.
If your skin just needs some attention in the initial phrase of combatting your dryness, use Green Angel seaweed Hand Lotion. This hand lotion not only matches the fragrances of the hand wash so your hands smell divine but contains multivitamins and minerals from the sea combined with added organic Lavender, Mandarin and Neroli essential oils and the added protection of vitamin E . Vitamin E is particularly important as it helps to create a barrier on your skin from further damage.
If you feel like your skin is past just combatting dryness and want to try treat your skin, use Green Angel hand cream. This luxurious skin healing hand cream absorbs all the vitamins and minerals beautifully into the skin to help hydrate and nourish the hands. It is especially good for dry or chapped hands helping to leave them nourished, healthy and soft.
