Why you should be using a hand treatment

If you have been ignoring your hands for the longest time when it comes to skincare, this article is for you. Why you should start using hand skincare ASAP.

From snoozing your alarm in the morning to attending meetings all day, you probably don’t even think about the part of your body that you use the most. 

Now, take a moment and consider how many times you have treated your hands apart from washing them again and again. But did you know that when you wash your hands frequently, you lose moisture, and they become dry and dehydrated? When it comes to skincare, the focus usually shifts to the face while hands are often subjected to secondary treatment. We most often worry about showing our age on our face, but other areas of our body, like our neck and hands are just as susceptible to the damage of time and environment.

Benefits of using a hand treatment

With perpetual handwashing and constant use of sanitisers, it is crucial to take care of your hands, and a hand treatment a good place to start. Using a hand treatment is a healthy lifestyle practice that helps your hands to stay protected and well-hydrated. Here’s what to look for when choosing a hand treatment


A treatment used on a daily basis should provide your skin with extra nourishment and elasticity. The skin on the back of your hand is a lot thinner than the palm of your hand. Back skin has oil glands, making it prone to dryness. Because the skin on our palms is thicker, it is recommended to use a hand cream with effective formulations that are filled with the goodness of Vitamin C and antioxidants.


Hands are clearly the most valuable assets for gaining access to and communicating with the rest of the world. In the process, they are frequently exposed to pathogens and germs that are not apparent. Excessive use of hand wash or sanitiser might harm the delicate skin of your hands. So, choose a high-quality antibacterial hand cream that can hydrate as well as protect against germs.

Fight the signs of damage

Our hands are exposed to the weather just as much as our faces, and if we don't take care of them, we leave them vulnerable to the signs of ageing.
