Regular hand washing is important to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria, but constant washing and drying also leaves your hands feeling dry, chapped and irritated. Fortunately, there are several products available to soothe, hydrate and protect frequently washed hands. With proper care, you can keep your hands and nails looking and feeling healthy. Read on for some of Joel Schlessinger MD’s top picks.

In his recent presentation, Joel Schlessinger MD shares his favorite picks for hydrating hand products.

Joel Schlessinger MD recommends moisturizing throughout the day to keep your dry skin hydrated. One of his favorite products is TheraSeal Hand Protection, which acts as a liquid glove to protect frequently washed hands. Simply apply a thin layer after washing your hands and reapply as needed. This gentle formula will protect your skin from irritation each time you wash.

FixMySkin Healing Body Balm with 1% Hydrocortisone, formulated by Joel Schlessinger MD and his son, Daniel, soothes and heals cracked, irritated skin. This medicated balm contains hydrocortisone to prevent irritation and inflammation. Apply a small amount to your hands as needed throughout the day to relieve extremely dry skin.

For specific treatment options, make an appointment to meet with your local dermatologist.
