In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, you’ve probably heard plenty of techniques to make 20-second hand washing more fun. Singing verses of Broadway tunes, making a viral social media trend out of it, or painting your nails a pretty color to encourage washing - which totally works, by the way.
But none of these things can fix the dry, cracked skin that comes with constant hand-washing. While it’s a necessary act to keep yourself and others safe during these difficult times, it’s totally possible to avoid dull and dry hands while keeping your immune system and your skin healthy.
Here are the top five hand products on MIRA BEAUTY that you should have in your collection during quarantine.
If there’s two things that any skincare enthusiast can’t resist, it’s a nice scent and soft, hydrated hands. And this hand cream from L'Occitane can, as they say, do both. Enriched with shea butter and vitamin E, this cream absorbs quickly and hydrates your hands while providing a fresh, natural scent - courtesy of rose extract from France, Bulgaria and Morocco. Sure, you may not be taking a trip anytime soon, but this cream will keep the skin on your hands hydrated and smell like you’re on an international vacation.
One of the most underrated skincare brands around is here with a $5 cream to say yes to (get it?) hyrated, soft skin during quarantine. Formulated with skincare savior coconut oil, which is rich in Vitamins A, E, and C, plus a variety of other nutrients - this is a cream that will keep your skin in amazing shape through every hand washing. The brand also has plenty of other skin, hair, and lip products for an affordable self-care session.
Manuka Honey is one of those ingredients that lives up to the buzz. This hand and body scrub gently exfoliates and nourishes, offering a benefit-packed blend of Shea Butter, Honey, Mafura and Baobab Oils that super-boost skin's hydration. African Rock Fig helps smooth and restore softness, and it smells great too.
