Washing your hands throughout the day can lead to dry and cracked hands, as water tends to dehydrate the skin and leaves it dry and exposed to the environment. Using anti-bacterial gels frequently can also dehydrate the skin as they contain alcohol. Shea butter’s biggest benefit is that it deeply nourishes and protects the skin. Keep your hands maintained by following our 4-step routine to keep them soft and moisturised!

Another secret to beautiful hands is strong, well-looked-after nails and protected cuticles. Your cuticles are at the base of your nails and they play a protective role - so it's important to look after them.
