How to take good care of your hands during the COVID-19 crisis

Now is the time to take care of our hands at home. WHERTEIMAR offers you an effective treatment to keep them in good condition.

It is important to wash our hands a lot during these days to avoid risks of Covid-19 infection. For this we are obliged to use detergents, disinfecting gels, bleach, alcohol, in short, very aggressive products that can remove the lipid mantle from the skin, damage the proteins in the upper layer of our epidermis (skin barrier) and create a risk of infection. It can also cause problems in those who have dry, very dry skin or with conditions such as irritative eczema, an inflammatory skin reaction characterized by peeling and itching.

Hands can become red, rough, scaly, dry, and with small cuts. Sometimes a burning or itching sensation may be felt, especially on the fingers and knuckles.

In short, we can damage our hands a lot and accelerate their aging process.

Now is the time to take care of our hands at home, spending a little time every day. For this WHERTEIMAR offers you an effective treatment to keep them in good condition.


After hand washing, dry hands thoroughly, including the spaces between the fingers. Then use the anti-aging and nourishing hand cream Les Délicats Soin Energisant Pour Les Mains. Among its active ingredients we highlight jojoba oil, allantoin, aloe vera, milk protein, urea and stabilized vitamin C.

Its rich, non-oily formula absorbs immediately to form a glove-like protective barrier against moisture loss. The skin of the hands recovers its flexibility and softness, offering a calming, anti-aging, whitening and anti-spot effect.

Three nights a week, use Les Délicats Premium Masque Crème Jeunesse Absolue also on the hands. Apply a thin layer and leave it on display for 15 minutes. No need to remove it, you can even go to sleep with it.

Among its ingredients we highlight rosehip oil, geranium essential oil, aloe vera, bisabolol, marigold flower, black rose nectar, soy protein, rosemary, red vine and vitamins A and E.

After the mask, apply a couple of drops to each hand of Les Délicats Premium Nectar Délicieux regenerating serum, a rich oil that contains a cocktail of exquisite active ingredients such as avocado oil, argan oil, damask rose flower oil, camelina sativa seed oil, geranium essential oil and plum seed.

Finally, we would like to remind you that:

  • It is not necessary to wash your hands with soap and water and then with disinfectant gel, with one of the two options is enough.
  • Hydroalcohol-based disinfectants are a good option when we don’t have soap and water.
  • Using gloves usually gives a false sense of security, but they are useless if we touch things or objects and then touch our mouths or faces. If they help protect our hands, we do wash our gloves frequently.
