Dry, chapped hands can appear at any time of the year but especially in the winter months, the combination of cold weather and exposure to harsh detergents can contribute to moisture loss, which is why it's important to show your hands some TLC!
Creams and balms filled with natural, moisture-locking ingredients are a great protective option for hands that are calling out for help.
The new Odylique Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie is a beautiful synergy of nutrient-rich organic plant butters and oils (cocoa bean, avocado and coconut) plus smoothing sea buckthorn, calendula and aloe vera. Its scent is delicious.
Or why not try our great multi-tasker, Odylique Calendula Balm, which we make with a high therapeutic level of organic calendula. Calendula is traditionally used for healing and reducing inflammation. This can be applied once or twice a day to help nourish, protect and revitalise chapped hands and cracked fingers. It also doubles as a cuticle cream.
For a no-scent hand cream, opt for Odylique Repair Lotion, a time-honoured favourite for helping dryness and the repair of distressed skin. It is also rich in soothing calendula, as well as calming biodynamic chickweed and chamomile and may be suitable for skin prone to eczema. Wearing gloves can help with protecting your hands against dry skin, as well as the pain of chilblains caused by rapid heat changes.
