During the cold months of winter when homes and businesses are heated and the humidity is low, painfully dry skin can be a problem for many. Regular hand washing, and the failure to dry hands completely can cause red, irritated skin. Hand lotion used on a regular basis can help prevent dry, cracked skin on the hands, but not all hand lotions are the same. Some burn upon application, and others don’t work as well as they claim.
I received a sample of St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion with Hydratein™. I figured this lotion would be similar to every other lotion I’ve tried, but I was very pleasantly surprised. St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion did an excellent job of moisturizing my hands.
My husband also tried St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion, and he was also very happy with the results. He’s a truck driver, and his hands become excessively dry, and the tips of his fingers become painfully cracked. Dry, cracked skin is a problem for my husband year round, and his fingers actually bleed at times. He said that St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion did an outstanding job, and it healed his skin faster and more effectively than any other lotion he’s tried.
We purchased a full-size tube of this lotion, and have been using it to keep our hands soft and moisturized. It’s by far the best lotion we’ve ever used. The special ingredient Hydratein™ must be what sets this lotion apart from all the others. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering with dry skin on their hands or any other areas of the skin that require moisture. This product does exactly what it claims.
Tips on Caring for Your Skin
Lack of humidity in the air is a major cause of dry skin during winter months. Consider investing in a humidifier to properly moisten the air in your home or office. Your skin will be much softer, and you’ll feel much more comfortable.
After bathing, showering, and washing your hands, be sure to dry your skin thoroughly. The skin requires moisture in order to stay soft and supple, but water allowed to evaporate from the skin will actually make it drier. Always have a roll of paper towels accessible for drying hands, and change bath towels often so a clean dry towel is always available after bathing or showering.
Apply lotion after drying your skin as well as before going to bed. Along with the aforementioned tips on caring for your skin, applying lotion on a regular basis will greatly help your skin remain healthy and soft. Consistency is the key to keeping your skin from becoming dry and cracked, especially during the cold months of winter.
Try St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion if your skin is dry and uncomfortable. Even if your skin isn’t dry or damaged, don’t wait for problems to start. Protect your skin and keep it healthy by applying St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Therapy Lotion on a regular basis. Chances are you’ll be very happy with the results you achieve.
