As the warmer months roll in, our green thumbs are itching to get back into the garden. There's something incredibly satisfying about tending to your plants, watching them bloom, and reaping the rewards of your hard work. However, while gardening can be therapeutic and fulfilling, it can also take a toll on your hands. The sun, outdoor environment, and constant contact with water can leave your hands feeling dry, rough, and in need of some TLC. But fear not, because here at Bees Brilliance, we've got the perfect solutions to keep your hands hydrated and beautiful throughout the year.
Gardening is undoubtedly one of life's greatest pleasures, but it can also be a real challenge for your skin. Here are some common issues gardeners face when it comes to hand care:
- Dryness: Constant exposure to the plants and ground can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving your hands feeling parched and rough.
- Irritation: Handling plants, soil, and gardening tools can lead to skin irritation, redness, and even minor cuts and scrapes.
- Aging Signs: Sun exposure is a major contributor to premature aging of the skin, including the development of fine lines and age spots.
- Nail Health: Neglecting nail care can result in brittle, split nails and cuticles that are prone to tearing.
The Gardeners' Hand Care Guide: Tips and Tricks
- Pre-Gardening Preparation:
- Sunscreen: Just as you protect your face from the sun, don't forget your hands. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to shield your hands from harmful UV rays.
- Garden Gloves: Invest in a good pair of garden gloves. They not only keep your hands clean but also protect your skin from scratches and cuts.
- Post-Gardening Hand care:
- Gentle Cleansing: After gardening, clean your hands with a mild yet effective, moisturising hand wash, our Manuka Blossom hand wash is perfect for this. Avoid harsh soaps that can strip your skin of essential oils and damage the outer skin barrier layer.
- Hydration: This is where Bees Brilliance really comes into play! Our Manuka Blossom Hand Cream and Healing Hand and Body Lotion are packed with natural ingredients like Manuka honey and beeswax that provide long lasting hydration. Apply generously and massage into your hands, paying special attention to your cuticles and nails.
- Nighttime Nourishment: Before bed, treat your hands to an extra dose of hydration. Apply another layer of our Hand and Body lotion. Let your hard-working hands soak in the natural goodness.
