During the current state of the world & pandemic we find ourselves living through, we are probably washing our hands more now than ever. With excessive hand washing comes to removal of our skin's natural microbiome and oils that live on the skin. These natural oils work hard day and night to repair and soothe the skin, but right now, due to current events, the natural oils & microbiome on the skin is working ever so hard, but also is beginning to lose the fight.
I personally feel my heart ache when I think of all the health care workers out there that are working themselves to the bone for the American (and well.. other countries too) people. Health care workers are washing their hands up much more than the average Stay At Home American. According to Safety & Health Magazine- during a normal, non-pandemic time, a health care worker washes their hands on average of 9.1 times per hour-- where the average non-health care working American washes their hands 2.1 times per hour. Now add in a pandemic, harsh & abrasive soaps, and imagine the state of our Health Care Worker's Hands.
As someone who specializes in skin care- I recommend that during this time, people take a collagen supplement & make sure they are getting lots of good fats in their diet!
Their hands are dry. Their hands are cracking. There is dead skin. Their hands hurt. Their hands ache. Their hands are bleeding.
This was brought to my attention by a Naturopathic Doctor that I've grown to respect and love very much. She called me and asked me- "What can we do for these workers? How can we help them?" So together we came up with a cream with ingredients that promote skin regeneration and soothing properties. This blend contains the essential oils of Palmrosa, Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Blue Tansy, and Geranium-- all powerhouses for over all skin health but with anti inflammatory properties as well. The base contains pure, unaltered, organic hemp seed oil, unrefined virgin avocado oil, and Raw African Shea Butter.--- extra bonus is this blend is 100% Vegan. A little goes a long way, and unlike other organic hand creams- this one doesn't contain harsh preservatives or alcohols. It won't sit on the top of your skin more than 10 minutes. Simply take a small amount out of the jar and rub into your hands (or anywhere that it's needed) well. Give your skin about 10 minutes to soak it in.
So where can you get this fantastic cream? Because I know you want a jar for yourself, and maybe your sister who is a nurse?
Right now, it is available at Herbs etc in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. If you are local, make the trip. They are offering curb side pick up and even shipping!
They are shipping orders daily, you just have to call and let them know that you would like a jar of HBC Organics' Hand Soothing Cream! Their phone number is 989-733-3636.
Other options- I love CBD Oil for dry, cracked skin. Infinity Balm is always a go to! Body Butter is great for every day moisturizing. Using bar soaps or our natural liquid hand soaps are a plus as well!
Until Next Time-
Stay Healthy, be cautious- but don't move in Fear
All my love & blessings
