Tips on usage

General Information

This cream is not only a Barrier Cream but nourishes the skin while healing cracked hands and feet. It can therefore be used as a general hand cream and as it lasts for five or six hand washes you’ll find it very economical.

Please give the cream time to work. It is not magic!

The important thing is to use this cream before doing dirty jobs. Used properly, dirt, oil, chemicals, grease & water will not penetrate your skin and you’ll find that getting your hands clean will be much easier & without special hand washes.

Specific applications

To Clean Skin Deeply Engrained with Oil and Dirt 

Use the cream two or three times a day and be sure give the cream time to work. It will take a couple of weeks or so to clear the dirt but once you get your hands clean they will stay that way if you use the cream regularly.

To Heal Cracked Hands & Feet

Apply the cream sparingly morning and night rubbing it in completely, when it won’t feel greasy after a few minutes.

Please don’t expect miracles! We repeat, it’s not magic and it may take several weeks to clear up your particular problem. But it’s worth persevering as you’ll eventually find out if your hands are bad.

When your hands are crack free, please keep using the cream several times a week and particularly before doing dirty jobs.

To Heal Small Cracks on Fingers and Thumbs

Every night and morning rub a little cream into the finger &/or thumb ends and around the nails. The cream will disappear completely. When the cracks have healed, you might be able to cut down the applications to 3 or 4 times per week.

To Heal Badly Cracked & Stained Hands: e.g. Mechanics, Farmers, Farriers, Tradesmen etc...

Wash hands thoroughly to remove as much engrained dirt as possible and apply the cream liberally over fronts and backs of your hands, rubbing well in. If your hands are very dry, and the cream quickly disappears, initially rub in a bit more.

Do this every morning before you go to work and again in the evening when you've finished whatever you do to get your hands in such a state! Re-apply the cream at bed time. NOTE: The cream won't do you the slightest bit of good in the tub!

Make sure you get into the habit of using the cream regularly until you see an marked improvement. Because your hands were so bad it might take as long as several weeks to get them right again - but it'll be worth it!
    When your hands are back to normal, just use a little night and morning.

To Heal Cracked Feet

Use the cream sparingly on your feet night and morning. You should very soon notice an improvement.
    If your feet are badly cracked they might take a little longer to heal so persevere! It'll be worth it!

To Relieve Chapped Hands or Thighs

Apply the cream sparingly to the sore skin after washing and thoroughly drying the affected area. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly the soreness disappears. Carry on using the cream sparingly for a couple more days and then cut the applications down to every other day or two or three times a week.

If you're going hiking or mountain walking be sure to take a Travel Tub with you!

However if it comes back then the cream is very soothing and helps to clear up the blisters quickly. Read more about Cheiropompholyx (Dyshidrotic Eczema) or Pedopompholyx testimonials here.
