Over the past few months, the constant loop of ‘wash, rinse and repeat’ has had our hands feeling tired. Keeping your hands’ hygiene in good form has left its toll – skin is feeling tight, dry, and in some cases, cracked. Here are three brands pioneering the way to make your hands feel their happiest and healthiest.
Over the past few months, the constant loop of ‘wash, rinse and repeat’ has had our hands feeling tired. Keeping your hands’ hygiene in good form has left its toll – skin is feeling tight, dry, and in some cases, cracked. Getting that balance between cleansing and moisturising has to be just right. Well, whether you need to cleanse on the go; you’re singing ‘Happy Birthday’ in the loo more than you’d ever dreamed of; or looking for a cream that is quick to repair, here are three brands pioneering the way to make your hands feel happy and healthy.
Sanitise

Now more than ever, keeping your hands clean is so important. You need something that is fast absorbing, sanitises on-the-go, and moisturises. Haan is here to help with their range of uniquely scented (Sunset Fleur and Wood Night, anyone?) hand sanitisers. Each spray kills 99.99% of the most common germs and bacteria. In handy 30ml bottles, taking them with you when you leave the house is perfect. Each container has enough product for over 100 cleanings, so don’t worry if you feel like being generous with the amount you want to use.

Cleanse

Murmurs of the ‘Happy Birthday’ song coming from the loo have, seemingly, become normal since the start of lockdown. When sung twice, it’s the perfect length of 20 seconds for washing your hands properly – wet, lather, scrub, rinse and dry. (If only a slice of cake we given for each time the song was sung.)

Since you have been washing your hands more frequently, there’s no better time to buy soap than now. Molton Brown has a library of lovely scents it’s been creating since 1973. They use the finest natural extract and essential oils from across the globe for very indulgent scents. Why not buy one for every colour of the rainbow? If you want one scent to start with, look to Rhubarb & Rose – it’s a nice light mix of sweet, citrus and floral.

Moisturise

Washing and sanitising wreaking havoc on your hands? It’s important to keep the skin on your hands moisturised, as constant cleansing strips your natural oils, and in some cases, can cause severe dry, cracked skin. We love Benamôr for its all-natural ingredients and adorable Art Deco tubes. Our favourite? Alantoíne, with its lemon scent, is an incredible cream to gel texture blending allantoin extract with glycerin, for a total hand turnaround: instantly smoother, rebalanced and protected.
