How to Soothe Stressed, Overwashed Hands

Hands feeling dry, flaky & irritated? You’re not alone. We’re all washing our hands much more often than we used to, so it’s important to take the time to show them some extra love. Overwashing and frequent use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer strips your skin of the good oils that keep it healthy, compromising the lipid barrier and leaving hands more susceptible to uncomfortable tightness and premature aging. Skip the harsh, drying formulas and reach instead for products that are both deeply nourishing and naturally antiseptic.
