Sanitizer For Hand Eczema
It’s 2021 and over the past one year, we have all been advised to use sanitizer that is antibacterial. Or antibacterial soap. However, if you have eczema on your hands this could be a bad idea. Think about it – you are going window-shopping and have to use each shop’s sanitizer on entry.
How will your hands feel by the end of the day? Itchy and dry due to the alcohol this products contain. Understand that constant washing of your a hands will dry your skin and help eradicate the good bacteria on your skin as well as the bad.
The funny thing is that parasites on your skin will still multiply and thrive no matter how much sanitizer you use. But it takes 28 days before the sebum on your skin produces oil as before sanitizing. In between that time, you would have washed your hands numerous times and could even now be experiencing a flare up!
Having suffered from chronic eczema myself, I noticed my hands were the first place to become scabby and infected. I was learning guitar at the time and had to stop and wait til my hands got better. It was just too painful to play…
Shea butter was something I had never heard of, but I did use green French Argiletz clay paste to treat my skin.
What About Gloves?
The gloves you find in shops these days are all made of plastic. Which in itself is an irritant. So it would be adviseable to make a creamy paste of Argiletz clay, mixed with one teaspoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of water. Stir until all the lumps are gone and apply to your hands.
Then apply cling film, then bandages. Fortunately, the clay acts as a barrier between your hands and the cling film, so you should not have a bad reaction to the film.
This method is rather messy and can be impractical for nurses in the medical profession who have had to treat patients with Covid-19 using gloves and other shielding equipment.
For nurses, I would recommend using aloe vera gel on their hands, followed by dusting their hands in clay powder, then using gloves.
Forever Living Brand Of Aloe Vera Is the Best
Call me biased, but this brand of aloe vera products from their lip balm, to their drinking gels, to their hand soap and sanitizer, has saved my skin from flaring up. Forever Shampoo and Jojoba conditioner even cured my dandruff of 15 years. 4 years later, I am still clear, thank God…
The main difference between other brands of aloe vera products and the one’s that Forever Living makes is this:
- the aloe is grown in their own farms
- the aloe is truly organic as absolutely no pesticides or herbicides are used
- the aloe is hand-filleted so as not to bruise the plant while harvesting
- the aloe vera in the products is active and this process is patented
- the products contain up to 99% active aloe gel
This means that the drinks are highly effective in being beneficial to gut flora in the digestive system. Also the sanitizer they produce contains a high level of aloe vera juice. This will ensure a higher level of moisture getting to the hands even while sanitizing.
Most other products that contain aloe vera, contain water and other dubious substances that are not beneficial to alleviating your hand eczema.
So, together with the Aloe Propolis Creme, Moisturising Lotion and Aloe Vera Gelly that Forever make and distribute, your skin is going to be in good hands – Pardon the pun!
I use their products every day and the scars from all the itching I did in the past, have all gone.
Aloe Vera Keeps Your Hands Young
As Forever is the top brand of aloe vera products and is also Halal and Kosher friendly, you will be hard pressed not to try their products. Your hands will stay looking beautiful and young, no matter how much of their sanitzer or hand soap you use.
If you find the Aloe Propolis Creme is not rich enough to moisturise your skin, settle for Shea Butter. Which is way more richer and will leave your skin moisturised for hours on end. You can find shea butter that is unrefined from African shops in your local area or Akamuti site online. Akamuti products are unrefined and also organic. They are based in Wales and have a good service.
