6 steps of hand care routine
1. Soap or hand wash ingredients
Before you use any soap or hand wash it’s important that you read its ingredients list. Make sure that they does not contain any harsh ingredients or chemicals that could damage your skin. Look at the soaps or hand washers that have mild pH levels. The higher the pH level will be the more damaging it will be for your skin. That’s the reason we always recommend to use soaps that have low or mild pH levels because they are 100% safe to use. When you are reading the ingredient list, Opt for products that contain glycerin, lanolin, shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil. They will keep your hands moisturised , soft and hydrated for a very long time.
After choosing the soap or hand wash it’s time to wash your hands. Always remember one thing: don’t use hot water when washing your hands because hot water makes your skin more dry. While washing the hands focus on the palm side because that's where most of the germs and bacteria are found. Those bacteria can also make the other side of your hand dry. Once you wash your hands make sure that no soap or hand wash is left on your skin. Check between your fingers because that’s where the soap is mostly found.
3. Dry your hands
People use hand dryers to dry their hands but they make your hands even drier. Instead, use a soft towel and gently pat your hands.
4. Use alcohol-free sanitizers
After covid-19 sanitizers are necessary to apply whenever you go out. But one thing that you might have noticed is that alcohol-based sanitizers can also dry out your upper skin layer causing it to peel. No matter how much moisturiser you apply, alcohol-based sanitizer repels the moisturiser. Therefore, it is advised to apply hand sanitizer cream or you can either use alcohol-free sanitizers that will protect your hands from all types of germs and prevent them from getting dry.
No matter which season it is, moisturising your hands is mandatory. During the summer people will prefer to use mostly lightweight and non-greasy moisturisers and in winter’s heavy moisturisers like shea butter. Now, according to surveys people mostly use hand lotions and hand creams. Everyone’s hands have different levels of dryness, so when it comes to between hand lotions and hand cream It can be quite difficult.

Our hand lotion is non-greasy. It will protect your skin and reduce all hand skin problems.

After applying your moisturiser it is recommended to apply sunscreen on your face and your body. People mostly apply sunscreen on the face and neglect the other parts of the body which is absolutely wrong. Every part of your body needs equal protection, even your hands.
Sunscreen protects your skin from sunburn and premature ageing. Apply sunscreen to clean, dry skin 20 minutes before going out in the sun! It takes the skin this amount of time to absorb the sunscreen in order to protect you. Apply it after every 2 hours. Not only your hands need protection but your lips also need protection from sunburn.
