If you’re like most people during this global pandemic, you’re washing your hands pretty much all the time. The CDC is very clear on the importance of washing your hands after being in public places, after sneezing or coughing, and before eating. It adds up to a lot of soap and water on your hands, and the upshot — especially in our dry high desert climate — is excessively dry, cracked, chapped, peeling hands. Ouch. If you’re reaching for standard lotion, it may not be doing much. But a cannabis-infused balm is magic for chapped hands.
What’s a Balm, Again?
A balm describes an ointment or preparation that’s used to heal or soothe skin. It usually has a thicker consistency than a lotion or a moisturizer, which tend to have higher water bases and low oil contents. KYND’s own Balm is an all-natural, cannabis-infused healing salve that blends shea, mango, and cocoa butters, raw coconut oil, beeswax, cannabis oil, and all kinds of essential oils. The result is a rich, potent ointment that’s soothing and effective for stressed skin. Actually, our balm also addresses muscle and joint health issues, offering relief for sore muscles, rheumatic joints, even headaches.
A New Ritual
For the purposes of dry, chapped, cracked hands, however, the balm is truly the bomb. Use it to promote healing and offer relief from raw, red skin and cracks. A little goes a long way, so start sparingly. Make a point of a nightly hand massage with the balm, but a quick dab and rub after washing your hands (every time!) is also a good idea.
Get It Delivered
Dispensaries may be closed around town, but don’t panic. Mynt Cannabis Dispensary is delivering, and you can place an online order for our balm and all your favorite KYND products. Continue to practice social distancing, keep washing those hands, and use the balm to combat the effects of all that soap and water. Hang in there, everyone!
