Protect your hands and face while wearing protective personal equipment

Why are my hands so dry?

1. The natural skin barrier on hands contains lipids called ceramides, which act as a shield from the outside that maintains natural moisture in the skin

2. Repeated hand washing, sanitizing, and glove wearing can deplete ceramides, causing the skin barrier of the hands to become dry and damaged

3. Those with preexisting dermatologic conditons can experience worsening symptoms and additonal dryness

Tips to help you

1. Wash with gentle hand cleansers that are soap-free, fragrance-free, and paraben free

2. Frequently apply moisturizers with 3 essential ceramides that restore the skin barrier

3. Look for moisturizers with humectants like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin
