I think that I have finally found a solution to my extremely dry hands and feet. I’m one of those people who get very dry skin, in particular in the winter. In the summer, it’s not so bad – but now with a young child and pets around, I find myself washing my hands all the time and this in turn dries up my hands.
Over the years, I have tried so many different hand creams and only a couple have actually worked. In particular when living in Finland, with the dry climate and cold winters, I used to get horrible itchy and dry skin.
Now – finally!- I seem to have found a cream that works! It is actually a foot cream for very dry feet, but I was told that it can also be used for dry hands. So I had to try it out… and it works!
The key point is that a persistent dry skin problem requires more than moisturising – and that’s what this cream does; it works on the underlying cause. The cream is based on wisdom derived from the rainforest region in Central America. It features crushed allspice berry, which has traditionally been used by the indigenous people of Central America to relieve persistent dry, cracked, red skin on heels, toes and sides of the feet. The berry contains enzymes that help to restore healthy skin.
I can personally say that the power of the plant is certainly found in this cream – after applying it 3-4 times a day (just a tiny portion at a time) for a week, the skin on my hands isn’t dry and itchy any more. Now it’s summer time and the air isn’t as dry – so it’s yet to be seen how it works on my skin in the winter. But I am hopeful!
It’s great value for money as well – the tube is big in size and you only need to use a tiny amount each time for your hands and feet so it should last several weeks. And what’s more – a percentage of the sales will be donated to Malawi, one of the poorest nations on earth.
