If you struggle with dry hands or cracked feet, we feel your pain. Dry hands are usually caused by environmental factors such as weather changes, lack of moisture and frequent handwashing with harsh chemicals. The chemicals in your hand soap can affect your skin’s natural moisture, leaving it dry, flaky and itchy.
As for cracked heels, too much pressure from standing or walking can stress the skin on your heels. When the skin on your soles is dehydrated, it loses elasticity and becomes chapped, leading to rough and cracked feet.
Treat your dry hands with a moisturising hand cream made of skin-friendly ingredients that won’t trigger allergies. Always moisturise especially after washing your hands. Other remedies include wearing gloves overnight to prevent moisture loss and drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Avoid hand soaps with strong chemicals, and opt for gentle ingredients instead.
Your cracked feet could always use a soothing treatment too. Before applying your cream for cracked heels, exfoliate your feet to remove the crusty skin, then moisturise with a gentle foot cream. Make it a habit to wear socks indoors to protect your feet from friction or temperature changes.
When choosing a suitable hand cream for dry hands, look for Shea Butter, a proven skin-saviour for dry skin. Apart from its nourishing and moisturising properties, Shea Butter is also hypoallergenic, making it a safe choice for sensitive skin. It is a go-to ingredient in lotions, creams and moisturisers because it softens, repairs and alleviates the skin.
The Hand and Nail Treatment Cream acts as an invisible glove of nourishment that protects the entire hand, including the palm and nails. Made with Shea Butter, Sesame Oil and Japanese Mulberry, this non-greasy cream is rich in emollients that fortify the skin and minimise signs of ageing. It also strengthens your nails and cuticles. Many users have noticed an improvement in their hands and nails after using this cream.
Cracked heels need plenty of care, starting with a moisturising foot cream. The Foot Beauty Treatment Cream smooths away rough skin with Virgin Cashew Nut Oil and creamy Shea Butter, while also strengthening your nail cuticles with Myrrh. This is one of the best creams for cracked heels in Singapore, as it renews and protects your skin from the ankles to the toes. The non-oily formula contains Arnica extracts to relieve swelling and fatigue after a long day.
Pregnant women often struggle with swollen and tired feet. The Energizing Emulsion works wonders to relax and refresh exhausted legs. Camomile, Sage, Basil and Cypress extracts hydrate the skin and prevent dehydration throughout the day, leaving your legs soothed and energised. This sensorial balm-like texture can also be applied over stockings.
