There are numerous natural products that work well to protect and nourish our hands. We take a look at a selection of the top ingredients in hand creams below.
What is sea buckthorn? Sea buckthorn is a hardy shrub known for growing in cold coastal regions. Its fruit and seeds are a source of a nutrient-rich oil which has proven benefits for the skin. Sea buckthorn oil promotes skin hydration, elasticity and cell regeneration. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the swelling and redness associated with many skin conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
How does aloe vera help skin? It is commonly known that aloe vera can sooth skin feeling sore after too much sun. It also contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C and it is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help treat more serious burns, acne and, in the case of our hands, dry, wrinkled and flaky skin.
Is sea kelp good for your skin? The answer is yes, thanks to its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, essential fatty acids and richness in vitamins and minerals. As well as protecting your hands daily from harmful external factors, kelp retains moisture, adds elasticity and replenishes minerals. It’s great for protecting your hands from the elements.
Tea Tree Oil
What is tea tree oil? Also known as melaleuca oil, tea tree oil is an essential oil that comes from steaming Australian tea tree leaves. It has been proven to help soothe dry, chapped skin by reducing itching and irritation. With natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties too, tea tree oil can play a key role in cleansing and repairing minor hand cuts, burns and bruises.
What are the benefits of almond oil? Almond oil has been used for centuries to soothe the skin and treat minor wounds and cuts. It is a highly effective emollient encouraging the absorption of moisture and reducing water loss and helps keep hands healthy with antifungal and antibacterial properties too. Full of Vitamin A and Vitamin E, it helps hands by repairing damage and reducing the signs of everyday wear and tear.
