A Show of Hands
With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we are all washing and sanitising our hands more than ever, and the alcohol and harsh cleansers will eventually take a toll on our skin. It’s never a good sign when your hands are peeling, scaly or rough to the touch.

That means you’ve left it to the extreme before finally doing something about it. Pick a product that contains pure emollients such The Nail Parlour’s Jessica’s Phenomen Oil, which is enriched with jojoba, almond and rice oils, as your first step towards intensive repair and moisturise your hands as often as possible. When you can, wear a pair of gloves to seal the moisture in, especially overnight. Lim May Shen, founder of The Nail Parlour says, “Do not attempt to exfoliate peeling or scaling skin as this will stress it even further. When it looks and feels slightly better, switch to a hand lotion or body cream for your sensorial pleasure.”
