Looking for a way to save your hands this winter? The Body Shop's Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash delivers.
When I'm cooking, I'm constantly washing my hands. I think it's a cross between being (slightly) germaphobic and watching too many Food Network TV shows. You know the ones where the host is screaming at some hapless person who's been playing with raw food with dirty hands? Yes, those episodes.
The hot water does a number on my hands. Add that to the cold weather and voila! I've got hands that are dry, rough and raw. I've been trying everything I can think of to fix this sitch.
I recently started using the Body Shop's Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash, $10, The Body Shop and it's really helped! My hands are much less dry and itchy. Whew. It's made with hemp seed oil (duh, I know), which is extremely moisturizing.
The scent is earthy and green. A bit reminiscent of Patchouli oil and freshly mown grass. The formula is soap-free so it doesn't t strip oils from your skin. The results: smooth, soft skin lasts 24 hours.
