Apicare Very Hardworkers Handcreme is a thick beeswax balm packed with Sweet Almond & botanical oils to replace the lost oils in your skin, and UMF 15+ Manuka honey to hydrate. It really works! Not just for hands, use also on knees, elbows, heels and cuticles. Massage well into your cracked skin until your skin can't absorb any more cream. This cream has a lot of natural plant oils so when you first apply your skin will feel a little oily. The oil will be absorbed into the skin, the speed of this will depend on how dry your skin is. Using the cream before you go to bed is a good idea as it gives the crÃ¨me all night to be absorbed. Using cotton socks or gloves overnight is recommended for maximum moisturizing. Use Very Hardworkers Handcreme to repair VERY damaged skin. Including skin that is suffering nicks and splits.
