At these challenging times where excessive hand washing is starting to take it's toll it's important to remember to look after our delicate skin. The skin is the largest organ in the body and sometimes the one we unintentionally neglect the most. By using the right products and avoiding those that contain harsh chemicals we can preserve and nourish the skin.
Using a natural and organic hand wash will certainly help your hands. Chemicals can dry your hands out within a few washes and hands can be left dry, cracked and sore. Natural and organic hand wash will do the same job of thoroughly cleansing your hands and removing dirt, germs and viruses without the harsh results. Washing hands with soap and water is one of the most effective ways to clean your hands!
Investing in a natural and organic hand sanitiser for extra safety when out and about or just for additional cleanliness
is a good idea at present. To help prevent illness, all major health organisations worldwide recommend washing hands with soap and water combined with using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser spray, 70% alcohol being the recommended strength. The alcohol does the job of killing the germs combined with some natural ingredients that help care for your skin. No chemicals are needed so, avoid using cheap sanitiser products that are loaded with toxic ingredients as this will not help care for you hands. We recommend Bloomtown Organic Hand Sanitiser Spray.
Washing hands excessively even with natural products may cause skin to dry out so, we recommend using a natural moisturiser such as 100% pure shea butter. Shea butter is recommended for very dry skin and is suitable for those suffering from eczema, psoriasis and even suitable for babies delicate skin :) Coconut Oil is valuable too as this has antibacterial properties that help protect against harmful microorganisms. These key ingredients in natural products really help look after your skin offering intense hydration and protection. By nourishing your hands and body with the right products then you will be sure to keep your skin looking great even in these harsh times.
