Repeated hand sanitising, seasonal exposure, or simply being too busy to care for hands and feet like we do other areas of our body… it all adds up to dry, dehydrated palms, cracked heels and an overall feeling of tight, sensitised skin on our hands and feet.
A little daily diligence with the right formulas, however, swiftly restores condition and comfort, leaving you feeling confident when they’re on show.
Our personal favourite? Run Zu Shui Gao Nourishing Hand & Foot Cream. Rich, intense and infused with some powerfully softening and smoothing herbal extracts, this 98% natural nourisher is a remarkable rescue remedy for dryness, cracking and irritation. Here’s how our hero hydrator works…
“Super hydrating! Perfect for cracked heels in the summer months… great in winter for helping with cracked and dry hands.”
Katie, Dermatology M customer
A plant-powered treat for feet
After months of hiding feet below layers of thick socks, tights and shoes, it’s no surprise come spring and summer that we find our soles ill-prepared for sandal season. Find a swift fix by smoothing Run Zu Shui Gao over cleansed feet before bed, pop on a pair of cotton socks and wake to brighter, more beautifully conditioned skin. In a rush? Simply top up 2 or 3 times a day and feet will be ready to bare in no time.
Run Zu Shui Gao’s nourishing power comes from a combination of expertly selected herbal actives. Our botanical blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) fuses blueberries, sugarcane, oranges, lemons and sugar maple – all natural sources of Alpha Hydroxy Acids – to gently exfoliate dry, dead skin cells. Next, Vitamin A and Bisabolol get to work soothing cracked heels while moisture marvel Urea and amino-acid rich Liquorice Root restore softer, supple skin.
“My feet were really dry all-over and cracked around the heels. I thought I'd give this a go and am so pleased I did! My feet are now so smooth and soft. I only needed a small amount and I’m amazed how fast this worked! Worth the investment.”
Layla, Dermatology M customer
Handcare heroOf course, Run Zu Shui Gao bestows the same benefits to hard-working hands too. Hands in particular are affected by all weathers – wet, cold, sunny or windy – not to mention our recent diligence with keeping them clean and virus-free. During spring and summer too, those among us with green fingers put our hands under particular pressure.
The botanical AHA blend works wonders to resurface rough skin on knuckles and palms, Bisabolol and Urea soothe and soften sore, dry patches, while Liquorice Root works to restore skin brightness and visibly diminish areas of pigmentation.
Like our footcare routine above, it’s easy to get into good handcare habits. Keep a pot by the bathroom sink so you’re reminded to apply after hand washing and even before bed when hydration levels are usually lower.
Small steps, satisfying results. Run Zu Shui Gao really does offer fuss-free, year-round care with results you can rely on.
