Top Tips for Healing Gardener's Hands
This entry was posted on April 14, 2016.
Are your blooms looking lovely but your hands suffering for it? The hands of a dedicated gardener can go through an awful lot while pruning, potting and planting. Follow our top tips for soft, smooth hands.
Invest in some gardening gloves
A good pair of gardening gloves will save your lovely hands from gardening problems like cuts and dry skin. A top tip is to apply some hand cream before popping on your gloves to give your hands an intensive hydration session while you're busy.
Grace Cole Floral Collection Hand Lotions £6.00 for 500ml, available in 4 delicate fragrances (Lily & Verbena, Lavender & Camomile, White Rose & Lotus Flower and Magnolia & Vanilla)
Get a moisturising hand wash
When your hands are filthy and covered in a few hours' worth of soil, it's very tempting to reach for the harsh soap. Rather than using one that'll strip your skin of even more moisture, look for a rich and creamy hand wash with essential oils.
If you've got a build-up of dirt under and around your nails, place some cleansing hand wash in water to create your very own hand soak – it'll loosen everything while you relax in the fragrant floral aroma.
Hand cream is essential
Every time you wash your hands, follow up with a rich, moisturising hand lotion. Hands can become dehydrated, especially if you're regularly busy in the garden. Regular use of a luxury cream like Grace Cole Hand Lotion, £6.00 for 500ml will leave skin supple, smooth and softly scented.
