Remedies for dry and chapped hands due to sanitisers
How to heal chapped and dry hands? How to protect the skin of the hands?
Having dry and chapped hands is an incredibly annoying skin issue.
Many people have chapped hands with little cracks on the back and on the fingers, especially during winter due to the cold temperatures. Some lathering soaps and detergents are also responsible for making our hands chapped.
On top of that, because of the global Covid-19 pandemic, in the past year we have been using more and more aggressive and alcohol-based sanitisers in addition to frequent handwashing, resulting in an increasing number of cases of dermatitis.
How to heal chapped hands? Are there natural remedies for dermatitis?
It is painful to continuously have damaged hands with little cracks. Fortunately, there are some natural remedies for dermatitis even for very dry hands.
Let’s talk about the most innovative and natural remedy to put on severely chapped hands: the hand cream with snail slime.
Proper handwashing protects us from Coronavirus, but having dry and chapped hands is seriously painful! How to heal dry, chapped, overly-sanitised hands?
We are living in a time of emergency where health is more than ever everyone’s number one concern.
Proper hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to protect yourself and others from illnesses, as keeping our hands clean prevents and contains the spread of pathogens.
However, frequently washing hands with sanitisers and disinfectants containing alcohol most often also leads to skin damages.
We should not have to choose between health and skin care. One does not exclude the other. What is important is to use the right products to moisturise and care for our dry, chapped hands.
Wearing plastic or latex gloves for long periods of time, which is necessary for some professions, also puts additional stress on the skin. Let’s protect our health while keeping our hands and skin healthy.
Contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis
Contact dermatitis (mainly due to the use of sanitisers, as well as soaps or detergents) and atopic dermatitis (due to contact with rubber, nickel, plastics and often linked to the prolonged use of plastic gloves) result in dry, cracked hands.
Therefore, it is essential to adopt some easy, expert-approved ways to deal with these conditions. The use of a natural hand cream certainly is the best solution, as long as you choose an effective high-quality cosmetic product.
What should you put on your chapped hands? Have you ever heard of the hand cream with snail slime?
Snail slime is an exceptional ingredient when used in a hand cream. Here is why.
Organic cosmetic products, if they are of high quality, are not only an effective but are also an ecological and animal-friendly remedy. Snail slime is without a doubt the crown jewel of eco-responsible cosmetics.
Snail slime naturally contains elastin, mucopolysaccharides, collagen, peptides. Not to mention also glycolic acid with its strong exfoliating power that promotes skin regeneration; and vitamins C and E which slow down the skin’s ageing process.

How often should you use Mira Cosmetici hand cream with snail slime? How best to use?
As a matter of fact, not all hand skins are the same. Besides, some seasons affect your skin more than others and cause dry hands.
We recommend to apply hand cream at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. When your hands get dryer, you can apply it more often but always respecting the following advice:
- Apply a small amount and massage onto your hands until fully absorbed.
- Apply the hand cream with snail slime to both the back and the palms of your hands, including the knuckles and fingers.
- Gently rub your hands until fully absorbed.
Can I use other products together with the snail slime hand cream? How to treat dry and chapped hands even more effectively?
Mira Cosmetici snail slime hand cream is itself a great and effective remedy for chapped hands.
However, if your hands are severely dry, you can follow this procedure based on our natural remedies for hand dermatitis:
- First, apply onto your hands a few pure drops of Mira Cosmetici snail slime.
- Gently massage into your chapped hands. The pure drops are a high-quality cosmetic product extremely appreciated for its dreamy texture that quickly absorbs into the skin, as well as for its long-term repairing effect on your hands’ skin.
- After a few seconds, apply the hand cream with snail slime.
- If you need an intensive treatment, apply generously the hand cream before bedtime and wear a pair of cotton gloves to maximise the action during the night.
Mira Cosmetici Naturali offers the most suitable products to combine with the snail slime hand cream. As already mentioned, the pure drops of snail slime are an amazing and complementary product to the hand creams to treat dry and chapped hands.
