I know, it feels like spring is supposed to be right around the corner and then, bam, we get another week of -20 days. It has been a long, cold, wet winter and while there has been so much snowfall, the air has been so incredibly dry. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I suffer from eczema. I’ve had to make a lot of changes in my diet to combat flare ups (lessen the processed foods, increase the green juices) and while the skin on my face responds well to this, my hands are another story. If I go a week with heavy, processed foods, it definitely shows up on my hands, with dry, scaly patches, but because I wash my hands so often, they don’t get a chance to recover & repair themselves. Intro The Body Shop Canada’s best selling item and the best hand cream for winter, Hemp Hand protector.
This moisturizer is a dream come true. It has everything you would want a hand moisturizer to have- strong moisturizing capabilities, a non-greasy feel, and a strength that lasts through multiple hand washes. Plus it smells fantastic! Hemp seed oil is great because it contains a high concentration of essential fatty acids. This helps repair skin’s moisture barrier and the beeswax seals in your skin’s moisture.
My hands have definitely benefited from adding this to my daily routine. People often forget that because our hands go through so much use & washing on a daily basis, they age a lot quicker than the rest of the body. So it’s important to take good care of them.
