Working in the garden, especially during the winter when the air is cool and dry, can take a huge toll on your skin. Hands, in particular, take a lot of punishment. Thankfully, there are some wonderful earth-friendly products that are available from Burt’s Bees. Using products that are 100% natural is important to me. Brimming with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax, these kinds of products will deliver the hydration your hard-working hands deserve.
I have found that the Burt’s Bees Honey & Grapeseed Hand Cream is just divine! Even my husband, who is always working with his hands, is an admirer of it. He usually does not like to put anything on his hands; however, he actually enjoys using this product. It is instantly nourishing to dry, cracked fingers and hands … and is not greasy. It also does not smell like a huge overdose of perfume. With natural ingredients … like honey, it’s aroma is natural and refreshing. My husband would not use it otherwise!
While our family benefits from many of the Burt’s Bees products, another one of our favorites is the Hand Salve. For best results, gently massage the salve into your skin daily – right before and after your gardening chores. The tin that holds the Salve is especially nice – allowing you to tuck it away in your pocket, purse, or tool belt to nourish your hands at any time of the day.
Working in the garden can be hard work, so it’s important to take care of the hands that do most of the hard lifting. Doing so with earth-friendly products is an added bonus. ♥
