Today we want to talk about something you’re probably familiar with – but we love to remind you.

Your hands get dry (or rather, they suffer) from the harsh cold. This yearly seasonal problem is even worse this year since everyone is washing our hands more often and using antibacterial gel, which further damages the skin.

If, in addition to dryness, your skin is red or shows more serious and bothersome signs, the skin on your hands will need more than hydration. The nutrition offered by natural body oils is a better option. We strongly emphasize that body oils be natural because they are what really help to repair the skin’s lipid barrier. They repair the damages caused to the skin and reduce oxidative stress.

We know that oil is not absorbed as quickly as cream, but it is what our skin needs in these kinds of circumstances. Chamomile, lavender, almond and calendula essential oils are especially beneficial. They are known for their soothing, relaxing, repairing and anti-inflammatory effects and are the basis of our Relax body oil.

 

 

There is no specific restriction on the use of moisturizer. Hydration should be continuous, but we must also let our skin breathe.

As for its use, we don’t want to generalize, since that depends on the type of skin and the needs of each person. For your hands, feel free to use a small amount of moisturizer after washing, since it counters the effects of continual use of soap and antibacterial gel. Shea Butter, present in our Natural Moisturizing Cream, makes your hands softer.

 

 

If you don't have any moisturizer at home, and you need to hydrate your hands, like when they are red, natural body oil is a good substitute for cream. If you don't have body oil either, you can look for alternatives in some of the products we almost always have in our kitchen, such as virgin coconut oil or olive oil. A mask of full-fat natural yogurt for 30 minutes can also help.

 

To further optimize the hydration, you can massage and moisturize your hands before going to sleep.

By gently massaging the palms of our hands using the opposite thumb and stretching our fingers, we relieve any tension generated throughout the day, as well as promoting proper circulation. We must remember that our hands are one of the parts of our bodies that we use the most throughout the day, yet sometimes we forget the importance of caring for them.

 

 

Hydrating our hands before going to sleep is very important because, as we do with our nightly face routine, we are making sure that while we sleep, our skin isn’t exposed to other external agents present during the day, such as pollution, heating or air conditioning, and the hydration is more effective. Don't forget to massage your cuticles as well, because hydrated cuticles prevent the entry of fungus and bacteria.

 

Household chores often destroy our hands, so here’s some advice.

It goes without saying that it is best to avoid direct exposure of our skin and hands to more aggressive products such as industrial cleaning detergents or similar products.

 

 

Don’t forget about exfoliation – an extra step for caring for your hands. Even though our Per Purr Salts Selection Exfoliant contains sweet almond and exotic verbena oils, exfoliation should always be gentle. Avoid exfoliating any areas of your skin that appear to be inflamed.

We would like to emphasize the benefit of salt baths for our hands. Just as massages are good for our hands, soaking them in warm water with salts and essential oils is very good for relaxing the hand muscles. If you like floral smells, I definitely recommend our Floral-Cure salts.

 

 

 

Bath Salts and their benefits

Have you heard about the benefits of bath salts? At Per Purr, we’ll give you some very useful ideas to get to know and use a product that will benefit your daily routine.

Bath salts stimulate, relax and soothe.

You've probably already taken a super relaxing bath with your Natural or Herbal Per Purr shower gel. But what if you add a little more? Bath salts have been used since ancient times. With a high content of magnesium, calcium and minerals, they were used to treat several bone, joint and skin problems.

When you add them to your bath water, the steam from the water will release the smells of the salts, causing a stimulating or relaxing effect (depending on the aroma).

 

 

Ideas for your bath salts:

  1. Don't have a bathtub? Don't worry, when you finish showering, take a handful of the salts and exfoliate your body with them. Leave them on for about 5 minutes and rinse with warm water.
  2. For tired feet, add a handful or two of your favorite salts in a foot spa or basin and soak them for about 10 minutes. Dry them with a soft towel and apply our natural body moisturizer. If you wish, use our exfoliating salts to remove dead cells.
  3. Relax and get into a tub of warm water, and add the salts. The steam mixed with the salts will provide a relaxing effect.
  4. If you have problems with blood circulation, take a salt bath or apply it directly to your body with a gentle massage. The minerals are absorbed by your skin and help with circulation.
  5. When you come into contact with the hot water and salts, your pores open up, releasing toxins from your bloodstream.
  6. Salt is an excellent anti-inflammatory. Adding it to your bath after exercising will help reduce inflammation in your muscles or joints.
