Tested for you: „Finger Food Handbalm“ from A4 Cosmetics

I’m actually not a big fan of finger food because I don’t like sticky or greasy hands when I eat. But I could become one of this finger food because it doesn’t stick or grease. The initially oily feeling when applying the hand balm, which is due to the argan oil (vegetable and eco-certified), disappears quickly and leaves a pleasantly silky feeling on the skin. Another interesting ingredient is called HyWhite. It is supposed to reduce the production of melanin, which counteracts the unpleasant pigment spots. In addition, it is not so easy to wash off and therefore forms a sustainable protective layer for the skin. Three active ingredients ensure that the skin is moisturized: Eco-certified, high-molecular hyaluronic acid and 10-fold concentrated aloe vera, which also has anti-inflammatory properties. The third in the group is eco-certified betaine from sugar beet. A positive side aspect: with these ingredients from all over the world, the clean beauty brand promotes women’s cooperatives in Morocco, Peru, Burkina Faso and Ghana. Self massage In any case, I have been applying the “finger food” several times a day after every Corona hand wash for a few weeks now, and my skin on my hands feels soft and well-nourished. You don’t need a lot of texture either. A hazelnut-sized portion on the back of your hand is enough. When I have enough time, I combine the creaming with a short, relaxing hand massage: First loosen the palm of the other hand with your thumb by making circular movements. Especially the ball of the thumb, which is often particularly stressed by using the cell phone. Then massage the individual fingers from the tip to the knuckles and gently pull them. Finally, bend your right ring finger towards the palm. Apply pressure for seven seconds where it touches the palm of your hand. Repeat the process three times, then do the same on the other hand. Just give it a try. Maybe it is just as good for you as it is for me when your hands are tense again! A4 Cosmetics „Finger Food Handbalm“, 50 ml, 35 € Key visual: fotografierende@pexels… weiterlesen

Check the Ingredients of your Hand Cream

The hands can be happy – or maybe not. They have never been creamed after washing and disinfecting as often as in the past few weeks. But the ingredients that the skin on the hands now need are not in every cream tube or jar. You should also take care of what you are using as soap and disinfectants. Well-tried disinfectants, such as those used for surgical hand disinfection, contain substances that dry out the skin to a great extent. Above all, alcohols such as ethanol or isopropanol, as well as ketones such as butanone, which is used as one of the most important industrial solvents in addition to acetone. Pathogens are reliably eliminated, but at the same time they attack the natural protective acid mantle of the skin and remove their fats. That makes them brittle and cracked. It is better to use disinfectants from beauty brands that not only target the bad germs, but also the well-being of the hands. For example, the “Hand Sanitiser” by Margaret Dabbs from London. It still contains the necessary amount of at least 60% alcohol, but is enriched with hemp seed oil and white water lily. Grown Alchemist‘s antiseptic gel with 70% ethyl alcohol, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants is even available in a 500 ml pump dispenser. If the skin is already visibly and noticeably damaged, you should make sure that the product contains no fragrances. They could make minor inflammation worse. So do the smell test first. If the smell is particularly artificial or fruity, it is better to take your hands off. Soap is not just soap A normal cleaning process that we got bled in as a toddler is hand washing. To protect yourself from the Covid 19 virus, it must be particularly extensive. It is recommended to soap the skin for at least 20 seconds, as often as possible. Frequent washing with strongly scented soaps can in turn lead to skin irritation. Classic curd soap does not use any additives or synthetics. Liquid “doctor soaps” are also fragrance-free. Block soaps offer a little more care, which by the way are back in fashion anyway. They are made from natural substances such as olive, palm or coconut oil. An extra portion of care and skin protection can also be achieved with baby oil. It gives the skin a protective oil film and provides moisture all day long. The wash water should also not be very warm or even hot.… weiterlesen
