Frequent hand washing and sanitizing can dry skin
With the Coronavirus epidemic doctors recommend frequent hand washing and sanitizing to prevent the disease, but doing it in excess can dry skin. Researchers in dermatology have published a study that ensures that washing your hands too much increases the risk of developing skin rashes.
Soap removes natural oils from the skin, if people wash their hands excessively, they will be removing more oil than the skin can produce and thus lose protection against infections.
Because you caused so much irritation, your hands get dry, cracked and raw. Cracks that form on skin can increase your risk of contracting infections through the fissures and also lead to conditions such as eczema.
Always keep your hands clean and moisturized
There's one step we usually forget after washing our hands or applying hand sanitizer – that critical layer of hand cream. Did you know that by over-washing our skin, we can develop dry cracks in the skin, giving bacteria an entry point into our bodies. Once your hands are dry, apply a moisturizer immediately. We highly recommend our body butter which is great for all over body, hands, neck, nails and feet.
So, once your hands are dry, immediately use a hand cream or butter to seal in the moisture.
We highly recommend using our body butters formulated with soothing and healing properties of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and many natural oils to keep skin hydrated and nourished all day.
Our butter formula does not contain any irritants, alcohol, allergens, parabens, synthetics, it is ideal to use as a hand cream and all over body.
