It depends on your skin type and the season, but one thing is certain: hand cream benefits every skin type, as the hands have only a small number of sebaceous glands. Stressed and damaged hands therefore lack adequate protection and require outside help to keep them looking naturally beautiful.
Dry skin lacks both moisture and lipids. On the hands, dryness is further exacerbated by daily exposure to all kinds of external aggressors. For dry skin, we recommend the routine use of lavera hand cream after each hand washing (and if necessary, in between). Don't forget your cuticles, as dryness can make them prone to tearing.
Mature skin too tends to be dry. This is because sebum production and perspiration decrease significantly as we age and the skin also becomes thinner. To ensure that the hands are well cared for later in life too, apply a rich protective hand cream several times a day.
Normal skin is well able to withstand external aggressors because its protective acid mantle is intact, but even this skin type will benefit from the daily use of a light and fast-absorbing moisturiser, which should be part of your daily routine.
In colder weather in particular, the skin should be protected with the help of naturally nourishing hand creams. Dry skin is more common in the winter than in the warmer months – due to cold air. Heating air too has a tremendous effect and can drain the skin of valuable moisture. To prevent rough, chapped skin, apply a nourishing hand cream several times a day. On warm summer days too, your hands will thank you for giving them daily attention, as the sun, salt water and hot air can also dry out and stress the skin. Light and fast-absorbing formulas provide valuable moisture to preserve the natural beauty of your hands in summer.
