Dry hands caused by excessive hand washing in war against Covid-19

Sore hands from washing too much?

Covid-19 lockdown has been life-changing in so many ways for everyone. We are seeing a significant spike in people seeking a solution for eczema that has been caused by excessive hand washing and the application of anti-bacterial hand gel. Red, irritated and dry skin are some of the complaints we are hearing from customers who have never before experienced eczema. The high alcohol content contained in the majority of anti-bacterial products coupled with anti-bacterial hand wash is extremely drying, depleting and aggravating for the skin resulting in a whole range of skin disorders. 

Soothe your eczema and dry skin immediately!

Of course hand washing and using an anti-bacterial product on the skin remains absolutely essential but so too is the aftercare of your hands. We recommend using a natural hand wash or plant based soap for cleansing that contains natural anti-bacterial ingredients such as tea tree, lemon myrtle or rosemary.  Next apply anti-bacterial gel or a tea tree based hand gel/cream. Finally, massage 100% natural Omega Balm into your skin after each hand wash. For extra dry and chapped hands, rub in Omega Balm and wear cotton gloves overnight. Your skin will literally drink in the 100% natural ingredients and will feel soft and beautiful in the morning.
