You can invest fortunes into facelifts, botox, tweakments and other anti-ageing treatments, but men and ladies your hands never lie. Your face can look ten years younger, but one little glance at your hands will give your age away instantly.
Also as a very necessary safety precaution during this pandemic, we need to wash our hands far more thoroughly and of course more often in a day than usual. The negative effect of this is that whilst you're diligently killing the germs, you are also removing all the good stuff that protects your hands and dehydrating them. This, in turn, can lead to dry and irritated skin as well as other nasties as it breaks down the barrier that we are trying so hard to protect.
Washing our hands less is NOT an option, so make sure you moisturise your hands at least twice a day. AND you could you use a natural alternative to your normal soaps or hand washes that is just as effective at killing germs and also keeps your hands' skin protected and hydrated. Ta-Da and enter stage left, Lana's Hand Wash from my Happy Hands skincare product range.
This product is named after a truly special friend of mine, whose kindness and generosity goes beyond the norm and whom without it, I honestly don't know if I would have made it this far in life. This handwash, much like Lana, is super smart and a fighter, but will also protect and be kind to your hands. Lana, I am truly grateful for all that you do to help me, for your firm yet kind advice, our daily giggles and admire you wholeheartedly for being the most incredible person I know. Love you to bits my dearest friend.
Now, let's delve a little deeper to why this hand wash is so superb!
