Solution for Extremely Dry Hands and Feet

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.

Firewalker – relaxing foot cream for the end of the day

Although it’s called Firewalker, we are actually talking about a very relaxing and rejuvenating foot cream. We all know the feeling of when we’ve been on our feet for ages and feel like lifting them up on the table or resting them against the wall. We also know how relaxing foot baths and pedicures can be. If you know what I’m talking about, then the Firewalker foot cream is for you!

The foot cream contains two plants that have been used in traditional medicine in South America and South East Asia for centuries. Cordyline Terminalis  is a small and beautiful tree with broad soft leaves found in South East Asia and has been used for centuries as a cooling gel on dry and callused skin. Babassu (official name Orbignya Phalerata) is pressed from the kernels of the Babassu Palm found in South America and has been used for generations as a natural moisturiser.

Can you think of a better combination for nourishing your feet?

Simply massage the cream into towel-dried feet after cleansing and let its wonderful effects sink in.

And don’t forget that a  percentage of the price paid for the f cream goes straight to education projects in Malawi. Over the past years, with the money donated through products purchases  schools have been built, trees planted, farmers educated, and kids fed in one of the poorest countries on this planet.

Beauty Gives Back

250 villages

155 islands

55 countries

That’s it in numbers how much valuable work the Force for Good Foundation has done for children in the world. Reaching out to those living in poverty across the globe, the Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of children by offering hope for a life free from disease, illiteracy and poverty.

How the Foundation works is by selling ethically produced fair trade beauty and health products by paying the local workers fair wages, sources plant-based ingredients and then donating a percentage of the profits to development projects world-wide. Its unique brand called the Epoch Range consists of skin and hair care products was developed in partnership with the world’s leading ethnobotanists—scientists who study the relationship between plants and indigenous cultures.

The products themselves range from essential oils to foot cream to facial mud masks and baby shampoo and body wash. There is a wide variety of carefully crafted health and beauty products that have been designed to keep our bodies in good health and looking good without causing any damage to it.

A donation of 25 cents from the sale of each Epoch product is used for a variety of educational projects in 55 countries. From the Foundation’s first project to support the traditions and environment of families living in the Falealupo village in Western Samoa to the now hundreds of humanitarian projects supported in more than 50 countries, the Force for Good Foundation is committed to making a difference for thousands, if not millions, of children for generations to come. After Malawi having officially been announced as the poorest country in the world, the Foundation has provided much needed resources in the country, such as planting trees, offering agricultural education and building schools.

Personally, I have tried many of the Epoch range products and have been very pleased with the quality. Each product lasts for a long time and so is definitely value for money. Nowadays with all the talk about chemicals causing cancer and how we should be aware of what products we use, it is essential to choose those ones that are gentle on your body and don’t cause any harm to it.  The Epoch range uses plant-based ingredients and I can tell you that they leave you feeling super healthy, clean and radiant.

If you are not sure which product to try out first, I would recommend getting the Force for Good Collection. I just got this last week and have been loving the variety of products included in it. Check out the pretty box above that the products came in as well. It includes: a marine mud mask for your face; a nourishing foot cream for your feet; an exfoliating foot scrub; a gel for invigorating tired feet; a fizz-fighting shampoo and conditioner; and a body butter suitable for your whole body.
