  • Hand creams – meeting the increase in demand

    May 20, 2020

    “Health experts say that regular hand-washing is the most effective means of prevention (along with staying at home), with both Public Health England and health secretary Matt Hancock recommending that people wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds at a time, to curb the spread of germs”, reports The Independent.

    “While vigorous hand-washing and using harsh sanitisers are both vital in reducing the spread of the virus, they can have an adverse effect on the skin, leaving hands feeling dry, cracked and sore. Dr Adam Friedmann, a consultant dermatologist and clinical lead at The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic, agrees, adding that many people who are adhering to the NHS’s advice will experience “irritant contact eczema – an eczema caused by a chemical, such as soap, irritating the skin”.”

    The solution? After drying your hands or using hand-sanitizer, Dr Friedmann says “you should apply a generous layer of hand cream to help keep them nourished, soothe any dry areas and minimise skin irritation.”
