Sweet Dreams With E45 Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream

Our hands go through a lot of daily trauma: typing, carrying, scratching, washing, ripping, cleaning and even the cold brisk weather can leave our most precious tools looking and feeling a little worse for wear. We often pay a lot of attention to our nails, but forget to pamper our fingers and palms in the way they deserve to be treated; a little hand cream on-the-go works to soothe dryness and target specific discomfort, but it’s good to provide a little more attention to the most hard working part of your body now and again. Thanks to E45 you can now give yourself a helping hand and help to soothe uncomfortable dry skin that typically is the result of the colder months; their new E45 Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream is a must-have winter skin rescue that helps to not only soothe tired skin, but protect your skin’s natural defences.

When applied liberally before bed and left to work as you sleep, E45 Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream helps to enhance skin’s cell repair and regeneration overnight. The fragrance free formula contains Vitamin B3 to help in the production of cells, so the skin on your hands can ‘regenerate’ while you sleep. (Not in a Doctor Who way, but in a ‘wake up with revitalised and hydrated skin’ way.) It’s well been documented that lotions and potions work better as you sleep, thanks to the body’s natural ‘shut down’ process which helps repair occur while there’s little other pressure put on the body; during the day it’s too busy fighting off free radicals, helping keep you upright and digesting your food to worry about a little dry skin.Expert dermatologist Dr Emma Wedgeworth gives her advice on the problem of dry hands during winter: “Hands are very susceptible to getting dry and chapped during the winter months as they’re often exposed to the harsh wind and the cold.  Reduced humidity and moisture in the air, as well as central heating, can cause dryness. Combine this with frequent hand washing with soaps or harsh detergents and it can easily result in impairment of the skin barrier, causing dryness and irritation. Common winter conditions can affect the outermost layer of the skin (or epidermis), which is responsible for making sure the skin has a good barrier mechanism for keeping our skin moist. The lipid content reduces, which means water is not held in as efficiently, and the skin doesn’t shed dead cells as easily, which is often why it becomes dry and flaky.”

With E45’s more than 60 years of dermatological dry skin care expertise,
you’re in safe hands. The lightweight and non-greasy formula is thinner
than you may imagine, but it applies easily to provide me with a
feeling of instant comfort and relief as I slip between the sheets. Left
to soak in as you sleep and get to work, my hands are left looking
refreshed and they definitely feel smoother when I wake up. This ongoing
treat (at only RRP £3.99 a tube) is a great addition to any night time
routine; we apply overnight treatments to our faces, nails and even
hair, so why not our hardworking hands?

    As a Canadian, I know a thing or two about the weather wreaking havoc on your skin. I've been opting for the Bliss High Intensity hand cream, and it does wonders at sorting out cracked, dry and sore hands. -Katherine http://thegreenbows.blogspot.ca

    Sounds like a no-nonsense does-what-claims hand cream, cool.

    I've been using this for the last couple of nights. Probably too soon to make a judgement as I haven't really noticed anything difference yet but thinking about it I'm not reaching for the normal hand cream as soon as I sit down at the computer like I usually do.
