Want to Reduce the Amount of Chemicals You Use Without Sacrificing Results?
Me too! I’m a dermatologist and skin care obsessed entrepreneur in the Northern California wine country, where ‘natural’ had deep roots. My mission is to blend modern skin care science with products that are made with natural and organic ingredients.
I’m writing a series of posts to share with you how I blend these two values into skin care routines without sacrificing results. In this article, I target hand care.
The Best Natural Hand Care to Prevent and Heal Dry Skin
Busy hands are washed and used all day, every day to the point of chapping. Remember your grandmother’s hands -- how nice they felt when they rubbed your back, because they were so rough! My hard-working grandmother had cracks on her finger tips from doing dishes, hand laundry, home cooking and gardening. I do the same, but refuse to have rough or fissured hands. I blend natural products with some selective advanced scientific products to keep my hands soft and fissure free. Here’s the tricks:
using only easy rinse, gentle foaming hand cleansers made from 100% natural ingredients.
Options include my popular All Natural Foaming Liquid Hand Soap
and our new version, infused with organic Lavender: the All Natural Lavender Foaming Hand Soap
using my Natural Lotion
. Its pump bottle makes it convenient to use continuously throughout the day.
For severe dryness, fissures or splitting nails, apply my Natural Butter Cream
to your hands at night. Rub the cream into your fingernails and cover your hands with therapeutic cotton gloves.
This deep drink of hydration will heal rough hands in a matter of days. My grandmother would have loved this!
For Busy Hands
For people in health care or food services, who have to wash their hands 40+ times a day, I recommend a hand cream with advanced modern science to hydrate and protect. My Dry Skin Hand Cream
is a savior for my doctor’s hands. It hydrates with a hefty dose of glycerin. It also adds a shield of protection with dimethicone, a modern synthetic. This routine blends nature with the best skin care science to keep hands healthy. I keep this cream in the pocket of my lab coat, and at my kitchen sink; my hands depend on it.
Did you notice that my natural formula products have a green band on the label and the word 'Naturally'
