From waking up to going to bed again, our hands are the parts of our bodies that are used most frequently. The exertion that they go through demands an equal amount of care and protection to be given to them as well. With our wide variety of hand creams for dry hands, you may rest assured that with a little effort from your part combined with all the benefits our products have to offer, your hands will be in tip-top condition at all times.

Your Hands Need Your Help

It’s not just skin problems that can cause dryness or roughness in your hands. Weather conditions with low humidity levels, professions such as hairstylists, musicians, or computer jobs that require excessive usage of your hands, frequent use of hand wash, and exposure to chemicals are all factors that may add to your hands becoming thirsty for hydration or in simpler terms, very dry.


Whether you choose to moisturise your hands every time you wash them, every time you see a crack in your skin, every time the thought occurs to you, or every night as a set bedtime regime, what matters is that you keep the process regular. Try to use hand creams and moisturisers daily, anytime and anywhere! 

Need for the Daily Use of Hand Creams


The thing about hands is they have fewer sebaceous glands compared to the rest of our body, because of which they dry up more quickly. Apart from this, they are also constantly exposed to multiple environmental damaging factors – such as the sun’s radiation, pollution, and dry environments.

For these reasons, hands may tend to reveal ageing symptoms such as wrinkles and pigmentation at a much earlier age. Regular moisturisation is necessary to prevent this.

Restore the Beauty

With the constant exertion that your hands go through, it is mandatory that you practice self-care. With your hands constantly being used, they’re constantly getting dirty, which leads to frequent washing. Consequently, your hands end up losing their natural oils and moisture. This needs to be retained on a daily basis in order to maintain a nourished appearance.

Protect Them Fully

Although no one wants their hand to appear aged, unloved skin can also lead to risks for your internal body as well. The problem is dryness due to excessive daily usage can lead to your skin cracking up. If not healed, these cracks can potentially become an entering point for viruses and bacteria. We’re all washing our more than ever due to the current pandemic, however, this can lead to more dryness, cracks, and ultimately more chances of infection unless we keep moisturised. Call it a vicious cycle, if you may.

The solution lies with not just washing your hands regularly but moisturising them just as often if you actually want to protect them fully. Make sure you carry a hand cream in your bag, in the car and at your place of work.

    Hello Margarida,
    Our policy remains the same, we only ship to the UK unfortunately. Please email with your details (name, address) and we will have our International Team reach out to you, to let you know where you can get our products in Portugal.
    Many thanks,

    Is it still not possible to place an order if not living in the UK? I’ve addressed you before on this and you told me that you don’t send to Portugal (where I live) also because Perfumes & Companhia represented you here. Unfortunately and from what they told me, they would not import from the UK anymore. Therefore, I was wondering whether, on face of this, you might have changed your policy and accept orders from Portugal…
    Many thanks and Kind Regards
