5 Tips For Healthy Hands During Winter
Use barrier cream:
The primary benefit of Fingertens
Solvent Resistant Barrier Cream
is to provide a protective layer on the skin, acting as a barrier against chemicals, solvents, oils, and other substances commonly
encountered in mechanical work. Fingertens Solvent Resistant Barrier Cream should be applied before each work period or job,
especially when gloves can't be used. Order

Wear protective gloves:
Whenever possible, wear gloves that are suitable for the job. We supply a full range of industrial and disposable gloves. For mechanics,
we recommend the Bastion Premium Nitrile glove. This glove
offers excellent chemical resistance, durability, enhanced dexterity and grip, allowing mechanics to handle small parts, tools, and
components with precision. We can supply sizes from small to XXL. Order

Avoid hot water when washing your hands:
Hot water can strip the natural oils from your skin, leaving it more vulnerable to dryness and irritation. When washing your hands, use
lukewarm water instead of hot water.
Maintain proper hand hygiene:
Good hand hygiene is crucial for overall hand health. Opt for mild hand wash/cleaner where possible. Fingertens
and Fingertens Clear are two options for a
milder hand cleaner option, and you can achieve excellent results when used with Fingertens
Solvent Resistant Barrier Cream.
After washing your hands, pat them dry gently instead of rubbing vigorously.
Cold and dry winter air can lead to dry and cracked skin. Use a high-quality moisturiser like Fingertens
to keep your hands hydrated. Apply it several times throughout the day, especially after washing your hands. Order

Remember, these tips are general guidelines, and it's important to consult with a healthcare professional or your doctor for
personalized advice if you experience severe skin issues or persistent discomfort.
