Cracked and dry hands are common problems faced by many Malaysians nowadays. Reason being? It’s the Covid-19 pandemic which has made it necessary for us to wash our hands regularly (for at least 20 sec each ‘session’) and sanitise them with alcohol-based sanitizers.
The result? The skin’s natural protective layer is stripped and susceptible to dryness and cracking due to these incessant washing and sanitising – but never fear, help is here! Keep dryness and irritation at bay – here are several easy and effective ways:
Moisturisers hold the key
Much has been said about the need to moisturise, moisturise and moisturise yet again. Presenting Oilum Derma-Firm Lotion – not only it is an award-winning (winning the Natural Health Award for Best Moisturising Lotion – Dry Skin & Wrinkled Skin) product, but this amazing lotion is clinically-proven for its efficacy, safety, non-sensitivity and non-irritancy formulation. One of the key ingredients, lactic acid, a tested and naturally-sourced acid helps to remove dead skin cells and renews the skin. That not only significantly enhances skin texture, but also boosts collagen production, hence improves the natural hydration balance of your skin. Used daily, this lotion wards off wrinkles, while its olive oil content is an antioxidant to prevent free-radical damage. Moreover, its Double-UV Filter shields your skin from damaging UV rays, especially when you have been outdoors for a period of time on a sunny day. You may ask, ‘Is it suitable for my skin type?’ Most certainly – Oilum Derma-Firm Lotion, with its fragrance-free and paraben-free formulation, works effectively on ALL skin types, ideal even for sensitive and problematic skin. Apply this Oilum lotion regularly after washing your hands, to consistently moisturise and soften your hands daily.
The Cleansing Advantage
Frequent showering is deemed essential especially during these challenging pandemic times – but not with any soap. Some delightfully fragrant (and deceiving!) soaps may actually contain harsh chemicals which can aggravate skin irritations. We would highly recommend that you use a natural and gentle cleanser – Oilum Hydro-Rebalance Firming Cleanser. With its fascinating formula of natural olive oil and collagen, this outstanding cleanser assists in keeping your skin supple and wrinkle-free while safeguarding it from free-radical damage. With continuous usage, Oilum Hydro-Rebalance Firming Cleanser maintains your skin’s natural protection and hydration functions for a moistened and youthful skin.
Don’t Let Your Skin Dry Out
Calling all who are suffering from dry, and sensitive skin: be wary of the skin products you use. Follow a proper cleansing routine to protect your skin barrier while ensuring that it does not become overly dry. Once your skin barrier is compromised resulting from improper cleansing, your skin will begin to age fast and severely dry skin will then lead to itchiness, scratching and thereafter, scarring. Hence, we would suggest that you use natural Oilum Hydro-Rebalance Firming Cleanser, and Oilum Derma-Firm Lotion to cleanse, moisturize and protect your precious skin.
