If you follow me on twitter or Instagram then you may have seen my tweet looking for advice on what I can treat my hands with to improve them.
After Daniel was born I seem to have had endless issues with dry skin on my hands. It sorted itself out for a time, but the past few months my hands have been so sore and cracked. I have tried all sorts of creams, from heavy duty body butters, oils, Neutragena to really cheap creams with a high glycerine content. Some have worked for a few days before my hands have reverted back to their normal dry and painful state.
When I saw a call out on twitter to try a pot of the Dermatique Recuperating cream I jumped at the opportunity.
I have been using it for around two weeks now and I’m really impressed. Just before I started using it my hands were the worse they have been – I had cuts where the skin had broken on my joints and knuckles and the skin was really dry and flaky; making my hands feel very tight and very sore. I let the cuts heal a little then started using the cream. It’s quite light and so soaked into my skin quite easily – some creams are quite thick and heavy and can leave your hands feeling greasy. This isn’t at all.
At £29 per tub, it isn’t cheap, but if it keeps working as it is doing then I expect I will replace the one I have. It really is helping to make a difference. The skin on my hands isn’t perfect but it’s better than it has been for a long time and I think that has to be down to this cream from Dermatique.
What I also like about Dermatique is that it was created following their own child have eczema and not being able to find anything that solved the problem. The cream is also paraben free which is always a plus and is a UK product, which I like too.
I really do think this cream has made a difference to my hands, and I hope that if I keep using it as I am it will continue to improve my skin.
