Hands, our faithful friends... Think about how important hands are to our lives ! They can be so many things : your shield from painful shocks ; the medium for caresses ; the substitute for a word that evades you in a conversation ; and, when you have lost everything, your means of survival. Have you ever thought of counting the number of times a day that you submit your hands to a brutal regime of changes ? Think of just washing your hands, sometimes in cold water, sometimes hot, possibly ice cold, depending on where you are. Or just the effect of passing from a heated room to the glacial cold of outdoors. It is not astonishing, considering this shocking treatment, basic to active daily life, that hands become red, chapped and dry. Certainly they have their own natural defenses. The hand's first barrier to its daily stresses is a hydrolipidic film which is a natural protection against normal climatic changes. This sebaceous barrier only provides a limited resistance in modern life. Every day it is necessary to reconstruct this film with the help of one or more adequate complementary products. And, good products exist ! All you have to do is find the one that suits the needs of your hands. The hand is an extraordinary communicator. Its free movements allow it to make gestures which can replace words. The dexterity of the hand has enabled the creation of a universal Deaf and Dumb Language of hand signals, and in reading braille, blind people rely on their extremely sensitive fingertips.
