While perusing the skincare shelves, you’ll find many hand and body lotions. On the surface it sounds like a great, convenient idea to take care of your hands and your whole body at once, but when you really think about it, is it the best way?
The Skin on Our Hands vs. the Skin on Our Body
Our hands are very different from the rest of the body and as a result, so are the needs of the skin on our hands. Our hands often need much more moisture and protection than our body does. Just think about it. Depending on the season, our body usually has a line of defense like clothing between it and environmental stressors like the wind, cold temperatures and the sun, not to mention pollution.
Our hands, however, are hardly protected. Unless we’re wearing gloves, our hands come in constant contact with irritants that strip them of their moisture. We use our hands for everything so it’s highly likely that the skin on our hands is much more damaged and in need of more specific care.
Is the Convenience of Hand and Body Lotion Enough?
Now that we know our body’s skin and the skin on our hands have separate needs, it’s time to realize that most conventional hand and body lotions do not give your hands what they actually need. A lotion made for our body usually won’t be moisturizing and protective enough for our hands while a hand lotion might be too heavy to apply to the rest of our body.
What you need to do is think about the needs of your skin rather than the convenience a product might offer.
A Better Option
Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding hand lotion formulated specifically for the skin on your hands because they know what your hands go through and what they need in order to stay healthy and protected. It is so much more than a moisturizer. It is that line of defense that your hands miss out on because they are most often bare and in contact with external irritants including soap, water and sanitizing gels. Gloves In A Bottle Shielding Hand Lotion is non-greasy and lasts for at least 4 hours, so you can rest assured that your hands are in good care.
If you need a shielding lotion that can provide the same protection but is specifically formulated for the more delicate skin on your face or your body, Skin MD Natural is what you need.
Your hands are not like the rest of your body so don’t treat them the same. Don’t let convenience make you settle for a hand and body lotion that won’t give all of your skin what it needs and truly deserves.
