How to combat dry hands

Keeping your hands clean and germ free is vitally important in reducing the spread of the Coronavirus, but the constant hand washing and sanitising strips the natural oils from your skin leaving them feeling dry, chapped and sore.

Our skin is the first defence against bacteria, viruses and other germs so protecting them is essential. 

How to protect your hands

  • After washing your hands, make sure you dry them thoroughly. Leaving your hands even a little bit damp can cause them to dry out and become chapped.

  • Moisturise after every wash. You need to replenish the moisture lost by frequent washing. Also, moisturising prevents cracking, which allows viruses and germs to get into your skin.
  • Massage an oil into your hands at night to support the skin's barrier function and protect your hands while you sleep. Use a fast absorbing light weight oil so your hands don't feel super oily.
