Healing hands

“Working as a nurse means you’re constantly washing your hands. Practicing good hand hygiene is essential to you and your patients’ health.”

Working as a nurse means that you are constantly washing your hands on the job. Hand washing while practising good hand hygiene at work is essential to you and your patient’s health. However, frequent contact with water, gloves, soap, chemicals and alcohol-based hand sanitiser can leave your hands dry, irritated and cracked, which can lead to worse problems like psoriasis and dermatitis. Because of this, nurses’ hands are more prone to being damaged whilst working than most other professionals. Below are some of the best hand creams for Nurses.

Common skin conditions

Nurses overworked hands are in need of more than a basic or lightweight moisturiser. Our Tough Hands intensive hand repair cream is a heavy-duty, functional hand cream product designed for extra dry, rough, peeling and calloused hands. Its non-greasy, triple-action formulation contains natural AHAs, which help to soften hard calluses. A superb moisturiser, UREA, works in conjunction with other moisturising actives including sodium PCA and glycerin, to deeply nourish dehydrated skin and replace lost oils from frequent hand washing, keeping your hands soft and smooth. This specially formulated lotion with dimethicone, Tough Hands forms a thin, protective film on the hands to protect the skin from the harsh environment, give relief to dryness and itchiness and prevent moisture loss for hours.

Tough Hands intensive hand cream also comes in a fragrance-free version. Unlike most hand lotions, Tough Hands Fragrance Free contains no added fragrances, which makes it the best hand lotion for sensitive skin or anyone with irritable skin conditions. It effectively heals dry and rough skin, soothes irritation and keeps your hands soft and healthy even with repeated hand washing. Tough Hands and Tough Hands Fragrance Free are hand creams clinically proven to deliver visible results within 1 day.

If you’re looking for a little something extra out of your hand cream, try our anti-aging formula Tough Hands for Her. It is indulgent with peptides, an ingredient that is proven to promote collagen production, bringing you softer and younger-looking hands. With the added brightening agent niacinamide, Tough Hands for Her revives tired skin and reduces skin pigmentation, perfect for nurses.

Our DU’IT hand cream range is Australian made and owned. Formulated with high-quality ingredients, DU’IT hand creams are the best hand moisturisers for nurses and healthcare workers.
