5 Things Your Hands Encounter That Mean You Need Hand Cream

October 15, 2018

Hands are the most used and exposed part of our body. Unfortunately, they’re often the most neglected! We’re hedging our bets that you’re already one of the millions of men who know that they should be apply moisturizer daily after washing your face. Why don’t you do the same for your hands? Luckily, here at Bulldog, we have a good hand cream for men and have 5 strong reasons why you need it.

Washing Your Hands

We wash our hands several times a day and it’s essential for preventing transmission of harmful bacteria. However, over exposure to warm water and harsh soaps can strip the hands of their natural oils and leave them feeling rough, dry and flaky. Sometimes we can even experience a burning sensation if the skin is particularly sensitive. Therefore, a men’s hand cream for cracked skin is vital after washing to keep your paws looking tip top. Keep one Original Hand Cream by your sink so you don’t forget.

House Work

The same way frequent hand washing can irritate the skin barrier, so can washing the dishes and cleaning. In fact, lots of common household cleaning products contain skin irritating chemicals, so wear rubber gloves when possible to protect the skin from these substances.

We understand that gloves can be annoying and leave your hands smelling rather odd too. Our hand cream for men is a good option for those who shun rubber gloves. It’s also scented with essential oils such as citrus and bergamot.

The Elements

We all know that extreme temperatures, central heating and air conditioning can take their toll on our skin. Whilst most of us know that we should be moisturizing our faces daily, the skin on our hands is different so a specific hand moisturizer is best.

Our Original Hand Cream contains aloe vera, camelina oil and green tea. It absorbs easily into the skin to help relieve dry skin, leaving the hands feeling nourished, smooth and instantly softer.

The Gym

Hard work leads to hard hands. An annoying side effect of your weight lifting is calluses and we’re aware that using weight lifting gloves can hinder proper technique. Reduce friction by chalking up your hands before you exercise.

If you’re reading this and suffering from calluses right now, soak your hands in epsom salts for 15 minutes to soften the skin and remove the dead skin using a gentle pumice stone. Be careful not to cut yourself. Once you’ve done this, pat your hands dry and then apply a rich men’s hand lotion to keep your skin hydrated. Original Hand Cream has been specially formulated to deliver 24 hour moisturization without being greasy or sticky.


Chlorine in swimming pools can irritate sensitive skin as it disrupts the skin barrier. Some of us experience dry and itchy skin post swimming so as you would use a body lotion, make sure you have a specific hand cream handy as nobody appreciates a dry paw.

You’ll be amazed at the difference using a specially formulated hand cream a couple of times a day will make to your skin.

Because who likes shaking a dry paw?

This hand cream for dry skin contains aloe vera, camelina oil and green tea.

It absorbs easily into the skin to help relieve dry skin, leaving the hands feeling nourished, smooth and instantly softer.

Specially formulated to deliver 24 hour moisturization, without being greasy or sticky.
