Keep your hands healthy: Tips from Swedish Beauty Brand Oriflame

  • Use soap over hand-gel when possible

There’s no doubt that hand sanitiser gel is convenient when you’re out and about, but the alcohol in hand-gels can wreak havoc on our hands. Whenever you’re able, choose to wash your hands with a gentle soap or softening hand-wash from Oriflame, and save the sanitiser for times when you can’t get to a tap. 

  • Use gloves with cleaning products

We’re undoubtedly going to be hygiene-proofing our homes more than usual, so be kind to your skin and dig out those Marigolds when using harsh household cleaners.

  • Use a quality moisturiser

Your usual go-to might not quite cut it, so look at investing in an intense-formula product for the current climes. Oriflame’s Intense Hand Protection Concentrate contains shea butter, sweet almond oil, and arnica extract so your hands will feel hydrated even after multiple washes or hand gel applications.

  • Look for multi-use products to save time and money

Many of us are not just looking after our own health, but our family’s too.  For convenience, look for moisturisers that are suitable for both young and mature skin, and with properties that will see us through this season and beyond. Moisturisers with SPF qualities – such as Oriflame’s Intensive Age Defence Hand Cream with SPF25 – will continue to hold their own in the summer months.

  • Masks are not just for faces

Treat your dehydrated digits to an indulgent mask all of their own and take the opportunity to put your feet up too. Pop on for a quick 15 minutes of me-time or apply generously before bedtime and wake up with smooth, soft, and supple hands and cuticles.

  • Hydrate from within!

It’s important to remember to drink plenty of water to encourage skin replenishment and regeneration.  Tackle the problem from the inside and out – your hands will thank you for it!
