Keeping your hands clean without drying them out

While we're all washing our hands more than ever, this inevitably leads to dry, chapped skin and nails.

Here are 5 tips and products for keeping your hands clean and nourished during COVID19 and beyond.

1. Use an intensive hand cream

Here are a few we love:

2. Wear gloves

Wearing gloves in the Winter shields your hands from cold, dry wind which can further damage the skin.

PRO TIP: Purchase a pair of gloves that have a 'touch screen' feature so that you can continue to use your phone while you wear them.

3. Nourish those nails!

Revitanail is available at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Woolworths & more

Using a polish that strengthens your nails as a base coat is a game changer.

We love the Revitanail Intensive Strength Nail Strengthener with Calcium.

4. Apply hand cream before bed

Applying hand cream during the day is great but it doesn't have a whole lot of time to absorb when we're washing our hands frequently. Apply a generous amount just before you go to sleep so it has time to do its magic.


You may be tempted to give your hands a break if they start to dry out but this isn't the time to become complacent. Here are some of quality, anti-bacterial soaps and hand sanitisers.

Have you found a hand sanitiser or cream you love during this time?
