As we try to acclimate to our new reality during Covid-19, there’s no denying that our typical routines are not so typical anymore. Even washing my hands has been extremely implemented into my routine (I’m honestly over washing at this point, but I rather be safe than sorry). According to the CDC, hand washing is one of the most important ways to protect yourself from getting sick and preventing the spread of the virus. Even though I’m not going outside (except for grocery runs) I can’t stop going to the sink and overdoing it with the soap. It doesn’t help that I have pretty bad eczema on some of my fingers, which have been brutally itchy and irritated. And on top of that my hands are dry AF, red, bumpy, and just plain gross. In between hand washing these are the products I use to soothe and treat.
Oh Aquaphor how I love you so. This totally helps the red, bumpy skin on the top of my hands. I also add it to my lips for extra smoothness. So good! This is kind of my “windex” of products. If you know, you know. I like this one with the applicator because I can apply directly on my hands and not get any under my fingernails.
I received a sample of this lotion and I like how moisturizing it is with its shea butter. What I love most about it is that it’s not greasy. It absorbs super well into the skin. Plus, it helps firm your skin as well as repair and strengthen its barrier. This one is fragrance-free.
This is my OG nail oil. I love how hydrating it is! My nails have been super brittle and dry as well so this really helps. A little goes a long way with this oil. Just a dab can cover two or three nails. Whatever is left over, I massage throughout my hands.
How are you keeping your hands and nails hydrated during this pandemic?
