Rescue Your Hands: 5 Simple Tips

Rescue your Hands

Is it time to rescue your hands?

With all the extra hand washing and use of hand sanitisers I’m sure your hands are feeling dry and maybe even sore so here are 5 simple tips to rescue your hands and get them back into good condition.

“My poor hands”

Before I closed my therapy clinic I could see the effects of extra hand washing really taking it’s toll on my hands but with a simple routine using the tips below I’m pleased to report that they are a looking and feeling much better now.

Remember dry skin is more susceptible to bacteria and infection. I’m not referring to COVID-19 because this is contracted through mucus membranes (nasal passage and airways) –  but it’s good practice to keep all parts of your body moisturised for healthy skin.

1). Make sure you wear gloves when doing any cleaning that involves immersing your hands in water, washing up or gardening.  These tasks take a toll on your hands and right now they really don’t need the extra work.

2). Moisturise your hands throughout the day.  If you are applying hand sanitiser makes sure that you allow time for your hand cream to fully absorb before you apply the sanitiser to ensure the sanitiser is effective.

3). Apply plenty of hand cream just before you go to sleep so it can really soak in (whilst you are not washing your hands!)

4). Wear cotton gloves at night after you have applied your hand cream to help it absorb in.

5). Use a good quality hand cream that contains high levels of hydrating and nourishing natural ingredients including a humectant. This is a water loving ingredient that actually draws moisture to the skin.  You can be rest assured that Just Be Natural hand creams tick all these boxes and the humectant we use is also naturally antiseptic.


Have you had a bad reaction to hand sanitiser and not sure how to soothe your hands?

A client of mine recently asked me this question after her daughter had a reaction to a sanitiser that her workplace had provided.  I recommended using some organic Jojoba oil and to apply some at night and use cotton gloves as well.  Jojoba is a lovely gentle moisturising oil. I am pleased to report that this solution worked very well for her daughter.

I hope you have found this blog useful.  Feel free to leave a comment or question below.

    Very useful, thank you. Our hands are very sore at the moment with all the sanitiser and washing. Cracks everywhere on our fingers. We moisturise continuously but will try the gloves this eveing. They used to work when my eczema was bad and I had forgotten about them!
