The pandemic has been an excellent reminder of how important it is to thoroughly wash your hands. However, after a while, the frequent handwashing wreaked havoc on my sensitive, eczema-prone skin, which led to a lot of distress. Not only did the soap dry out my hands and inflame my eczema, but at one point, the friction of scrubbing became painful against my open wounds.
I needed to figure out how to keep my hands clean without destroying my skin. After some trial and error, I came up with an effective regimen that has helped repair my damaged skin–and it’s been a huge relief.
