With the motor mechanic profession being so hands-on, it’s often the skin that takes the flak, exposure to oil and grease, and washing hands up to 10 times a day, can all take its toll.
With over 70 years of experience in skincare, Swarfega know a thing or two about keeping hands healthy.
One of the most common skin complaints among mechanics is dermatitis, which can manifest as a rash or dry and painfully cracked skin.
It is possible that exposure to contaminants can also cause a severe allergic reaction.
These reactions may well develop for a contaminant you’ve been using for years and there’s no quick fix for this and once your skin has reacted in this way to a specific contaminant, it will continue to do so the next time it comes into contact.
To combat this, Swarfega recommend a three-step approach to keeping your skin in good condition.
“Protection is key, helping to guard your skin against harmful contaminants is vital – Swarfega’s hand protection cream is ideal for this, and also protects against non-water-based contaminants such as dry powders,” commented a Swarfega spokesman.
“Following this, washing your hands on a regular basis helps to prevent grease and grime becoming ingrained.
“After washing Swarfega’s restoration creams replenish natural oils and maintain healthy skin.”
