Aveeno Skin Relief Restore and Protect Hand Cream is another addition in the long line of moisturising products from the Aveeno range. These all use the well-documented properties of oatmeal to help relieve dry skin conditions.
This cream is formulated for use on the hands, using a unique triple oatmeal complex (colloidal oatmeal) (including finely‐milled oatmeal, oat oil, and oat essence) to bring relief to the relatively common problem of dry, itchy, irritable skin on the hands.
The oatmeal works by helping to restore the skin’s natural protective ‘barrier’, which is a fine layer on the skin’s surface that reduces moisture loss through evaporation. This can become damaged due to a skin condition, and this cream can help protect the hands, as well as providing immediate relief from irritation caused by chapped, dry skin.
The intense moisturising effect of this hand cream lasts for up to 24 hours and, with regular use, the skin will soften and feel less tight and healthier. It is easily absorbed and fragrance-free.
