7 Hand Saviours For Dry Skin
We can often neglect our hands at the best of times. And in winter, with the extra dryness in the air and temperature changes between indoors and the elements outside, our skin needs a little extra love. Dry hands and irritated cuticles are nobody's friend! The solution: keep a natural hand-cream in your bag, car or desk at work and apply liberally as both a prevention and cure throughout the day.
But where do you start and how do you choose? We'll admit, there's so many wonderful natural hand-creams on the market it can be tough!
That's why we've put together our top-selling, hardworking Natural Winter Hand Saviours, from lotions to salves, so you can enjoy soft, hydrated skin all season long:
Enriched with Calendula, Rosehip, Sandalwood and Benzoin, this award winning moisturiser helps to soothe and repair dry, chapped skin and condition the cuticles. Hand Rescue contains Rosehip Oil, a recognised aid in the treatment of burns, premature ageing, dry, itchy skin conditions and sun-damaged skins. It also includes Calendula Oil, rich in beta-carotene which has anti-inflammatory properties and Benzoin used for centuries in the treatment of skin irritations and wounds.
Luxuriously soothing and gentle with 100% plant-derived ingredients including Australian Lilly Pilly extract known for its high levels of anti-oxidants, this hand cream will nourish and protect and leave skin smooth, soft and lightly fragrant in the Bondi Wash scent Tasmanian Pepper & Lavender.
Perfect Paws Hand and Foot Cream is bursting with skin nourishing superfoods and is made without any nut oils. Among other delicious nutrients, this skin quencher is loaded with anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids, Omega 3 and 6.
