One of the health hazards of being a family medicine nurse practitioner is that my hands take a heavy beating because I wash them a lot.
Using hand sanitizer helps, but the truth is that my hands never feel clean without soap and water. So, I end up washing my hands before and after each patient.
The price I pay is the quickly aging hands. The skin on the hands does not lie. It shows aging faster than the skin on the face.
To preserve overall healthfulness and beauty, caring for my hands as much as for the face and neck is important. But selecting which products to use can be a challenge.
Toxic ingredients–parabens, perfumes, alcohols, silicones, and petroleum make up many conventional lotions.
That is why I am crazy about finding quality organic products, and I recommend them to all my family and friends that care about what they put on their skin.
One of my favorite products is the thick and super hydrating Beauty Balm by Banyan Botanicals.
Made with 100% certified organic ingredients: ghee (clarified butter), refined coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax, Shatavari root, ashwagandha root, Vidari Kanda root, fennel seed, licorice root, rose geranium essential oil. It works well on my clinically-challenged hands. And I hope it will keep your hard-working hands healthy and beautiful too! Just give it a try.
*Bonus: you can use this balm anywhere on the body, including the face, the area around the eyes, and the lips.
