Unfortunately, the pandemic is not quite over yet, especially for the elderly with pre-existing conditions. That means you need to pay more attention to any viral infections you and your family may unknowingly be carrying.
One of things you, undoubtly, are doing, is washing your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds to remove COVID-19 causing germs and other microbes. That’s great but as a side effect, you may have noticed your hands have become far more dry and chapped than normal. By washing more than you ever did before, you are also washing away natural oils that act as a protective barrier and keep moisture in. As a result, you will need to pat the skin dry instead of rubbing it with a cloth and moisturizing with a good quality moisturizing cream or lotion. Keep in mind, your skin will best absorb moisture from applying moisturizing creams during the first few minutes after washing.
That’s where Beauchamp’s Hand Lotion comes into play. We’ve been making our hand lotion for over 80 years. Just pour some of our moisturizing cream on your hands, or any other section of chapped or dry skin, as often as you need. Pour some on your hands, feet, elbows or anywhere that dry skin is a problem.
And, if you like our hand cream…and we’re confident you will…remember that Beauchamp’s Hand Lotion makes a great Christmas gift for anyone on your list. It comes in 4-ounce, 8-ounce or 16-ounce sizes so there is a size for any budget or need.
So, not only is Beauchamp’s Hand Lotion a great way to take care of yourself, it also makes a great gift idea when you do travel over the river and through the woods and make it to Grandmother’s house.
Merry Christmas from all of us here at Beauchamp & O’Rourke Pharmacy. We wish you health and happiness and remember, the best Christmas gifts may come from the heart…but smooth and healthy skin does wonders, too!
