6 top tips for soothing sore hands. 

Winter can be very harsh on the old digits. Our hands are still hard at work, even when the weather is frosty, and the bitter climate can take its toll on both our joints and our skin… but we have the perfect antidote.

Our deeply nourishing hand cream has arrived! We’ve combined some of the most hydrating and soothing natural ingredients available to work their magic on your mitts. Inside, you’ll find a healing blend of argan oil, shea butter and lavender, among many other outstanding natural ingredients, each chosen for their ability to replenish and protect. 

A harmonious blend of vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties work to soothe sore, dry, irritated skin and aching joints. At the same time, the epidermis is replenished, helping your hands to retain moisture throughout the day. 

Available in a travel sized pot (60g), or as a XL sized pot (240g) perfect for your bathroom, our hand cream is a must have for those cold winter months!

To celebrate its launch, we’ve put together a hands-focused self care guide that’ll leave your paws feeling lovely. 

How to soothe sore hands

1. Avoid washing with roasting hot water. 

Keep things cosy and warm at most, as hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils. 

2. Choose a gentle, moisturising soap, with a natural oil base. 

Our sapa bars have a coconut and olive oil base, which makes them both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. This means that they effectively cleanse while hydrating and soothing tired, irritated hands. 

They’re also packed with nourishing fatty acids that help your skin to retain moisture throughout the day. 

3. Apply moisturiser after every wash. 

You know when you go to those fancy hotels or pubs and they have a moisturiser in the toilet? Well it’s time to make that fanciness part of ordinary life – your hands deserve it.

Keep a pot of hand cream in the bathroom so you can replenish lost lipids after every wash. 

4. Try intensive night time moisturising.

Use those 8 hours in dreamland (or as much as your waking life will allow) to deeply moisturise. Apply a generous amount of hand cream to both of your paws before bed and let it work its magic throughout the night. 

Wake up to a grateful set of digits. 

5. Work on improving your circulation.

Blood circulation is a key part of skin and joint health. Just a few tweaks to your daily routine can improve your circulation and help to combat dry, irritated, and aching hands.  

A very basic place to start is to drink more water – just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean hydration is any less important. 

6. Wear gloves. 

Sometimes simplicity is the right answer. Hide your hands away from dry, harsh winds and they will thank you!
