Perfectly cared for hands are your calling card
In olden days, soft hands were a sign of wealth: other people did the work for you. Although status is measured differently nowadays, well groomed hands are still a sign of culture and refinement.
The shape of your hands is genetic, so you have no influence over that. But you can do a lot to improve the condition of the skin. Good hand care is mainly about hydration. The skin can easily become dry because hands are often in contact with soap and water. Purol Handcream contains a high percentage of provitamin B5 (Panthenol), which boosts the moisture balance in the skin and makes it softer and more supple.
The skin on the hands has little in the way of a natural protective layer. There are very few sebaceous glands and hardly any fatty tissue on the backs of the hands. The hands are therefore extra sensitive to external influences, such as the cold and sunlight.
The best thing is to apply the soft, moisture restoring Purol hand cream several times a day. Do this preferably after contact with water and before you go to bed.
During ‘wet’ jobs, use cotton gloves covered by rubber gloves. Don’t use rubber gloves alone as hands easily become damp, and sweat also has a drying effect. Have tubes of hand cream in various places in your home (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom). You will be more likely to use it regularly.

Hand cream for your nails
You can also treat your nails with Purol hand cream, focusing on the cuticles under which the nail is formed. The cream reaches the underlying area through the cuticles.
If your hands have suffered too much exposure to dry and/or cold weather, cracks can occur: painful, stubborn wounds. You can treat these with Purol salve ● unguent (the yellow skin-restoring salve). Apply the salve to the raw, painful skin before you go to bed and wear cotton gloves (available from the pharmacy) to allow the salve to be absorbed by your hands and not rub off on your sheets.
